    A Very Merry Christmas to all the wonderful members of this site and to their families and friends. And to those who see this after Christmas Day(I'm a bit late on getting this up) I hope you had a wonderful holiday.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!


Happyh

We do our big meal on Christmas Eve so there's nothing remaining but table scraps. The menu was a roast prime rib of beef (we're all Colorado carnivores), a green salad with a Chipotle Cherry vinegarette and feta, baked potato and trimmings, green beans with bacon, and carmelized brussel sprouts. Dessert was an amazing pecan pie from Gaido's in Texas that was a gift from a dear friend.

Tonight's meal will be lighter. A tomatillo green chile pork verde and fresh tortillas.

I hope you all enjoy your holidays!

Oh wow; both meal sound delicious!  Calico, I had to look up lardons as I'd never heard the word before.  Maybe it's an English thing?

I, of course, have no Christmas meal of my own to share but got curious and found this online description of an 1886 Christmas dinner in Kansas.  All errors are original in the text.  I doubt HH and KC would have eaten such a fancy meal but, still, it's pretty interesting to see what some people ate:

"Christmas Dinner This table should be laid as for any other company dinner, the necessary adjuncts being at had on the sideboard or another table, as heretofore directed. It is a modern fancy to introduce a centre cloth of embroidered linen, or squares and ovals of plush, on which the epergne is set; but practical housekeepers would generally prefer a low dish of ferns or scarlet geraniums mingled with white carnations, having for a base a round mirror whose outer edge could be hidden under a wreath of evergreen, and upon whose surface some stray leaves or blossoms have fallen as if by accident. In cities and towns, where raw oysters can be had, they are often used as a first course. They should be opened and the shell washed an hour or so before dinner, and be put in a cold place. When wanted for the table, if one has not proper oyster-plates, arrange six of these shells, with an oyster in each, on a dessert-plate, with the narrow part of the shell inward, all meeting in the centre, where two or three slices of lemon are laid. Small crackers are passed, in addition to the bread on the napkin, and the pepper and the salt should be within reach. The second course may be breaded mutton-chops, accompanied with canned French peas. A haunch of venison and boiled cauilflower, with drawn butter poured over the latter, would make an acceptable second course. The venison should be purchased several days in advance and hung in a cool place, and should be washed off five or six times with vinegar. On Christmas morning it should be washed with warm water, with a dash of cold water at the last. The wipe perfectly dry and enclose it in a covering of dough made of flour and water rolled into a thickness of not more than half an inch. Encase this in two layers of white wrapping-paper and secure with a string. Fill a dripping-pan a third full of hot water and baste ofen, adding to it from the tea-kettle as it evaporates. Frequent basting will keep the paper from scorching; and when thorougly cooked--which will require from two to three hours--take form the oven about three-fourths of an hour before dinner, remove all the coverings, rub well with butter and dredge with flour, and then return to the oven. Repeat this butter-basting two or three times, till the meat is nicely browned and a 'glaze' formed. Garnish the venison with alternate slices of lemon and pickled beet-root. Season the gravy with a large spoonful of currant jelly and the juice of half a lemon. Other suitable vegetables to be passed with venison are mashed turnips, mashed potato, or sweet potato. If a turkey is thorugh to be a necessitiy to complete the Christmas dinner, he should be perpared for the table as directed on page 119. When dihsed, it will be an improvement to garnish him with oysters carefully crumbed and fried. Cranberry sauce should be passed with roast turkey. Chicken salad may follow this course, cheese and crackers coming next. Everything save the ornamental centre- pice will now be removed from the table, and the crumbs brushed from the cloth, making the entrance of the mince-pies, fruits, nuts, and raisins now in order. Ices will be reslished after highly-seasoned pastried, and light fancy cakes may be passed with them. Oranges, grapes, and the late pears are ordinarily offered, and last of all should com the little cups of black coffee, accompanied by cream and sugar. it sould be of good strength, as we fuly assent to the statement that 'well-bred and sensible people do not affect pale and watery decoctions after a hearty dinner.'"

---Kansas Home Cook-Book consisting of recipes contributed by ladies of Leavenworth and other cities and towns, compiled by Mrs. C.H. Cushing and Mrs. B. Gray, facsimile 1886 edition [Creative Cookbooks:Monterey CA] 2001 (p. 33-35)

Fascinating past Christmas meal details from Ghislaine! And delicious-sounding present Christmas menus from Calico and Inside Outlaw. It all made me feel hungry again in spite of all I ate yesterday, (turkey, stuffing, Brussels, etc but all prepared by my brilliant cook of a daughter-in-law.)
Hope you are all having a good Christmas!

We have two Christmas dinners at our house - one with hubby's family on December 25 and one with my family on December 26.

Dec 25 Menu - ham, turkey, gravy, cheesy hash browns, yams with marshmallow topping, rolls, fruit salad with marshmallows, apple pie, berry pie, apple pie, and pumpkin pie.

Dec 26 Menu - lasagna, salad, garlic bread, and a dessert to be determined.

Of course, both have wines, Stella Artois, sodas, coffee, tea, and water.


Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Chanukah with family and friends!

Can never get used to the wide ocean that flows between the USA and Britain! I always think we must be very similar. Shared heritage, shared ideas. Like the same things (e.g. a certain type of outlaw). Etc. And then I suddenly realise that things are actually very different for us. And your menu for Xmas is a case in point, for example, Penski! Turkey with marshmallows!! Turkey with marshmallows?? In England savoury and sweet things would NEVER appear on the same plate together! It does sound very interesting, however. I looked up 'yams with marshmallows' on the Web, and it sounded delicious! I'll have to try it! With Turkey or something. A new experience. Thanks, Penski, and Bon Appetit!
