Going to start a new Christmas Eve tradition. Make your own pizzas. One is a white sauce, two are red and I made cheese sticks out of mine. They used leftover sausage and bacon from breakfast. The dough is 1.5x the normal amount but everyone loved it.

Christmas Eve tradition. Pizza with Jesus' face? Slice on the right looks a bit too righteous to eat. :dunno:

Jesus is a bit much. I can see a scream face though.

I’m surprised there aren’t any Christmas meals posted.

Prime rib roast (boneless) with mashed potatoes, carrots and rutabaga.

We did a ribeye roast too. I wanted to start it Friday for our company but I didn’t realize it needed to dry brine for at least 24 hours. So I cut off 3 hefty steaks to freeze and then started the brine and let it sit in the fridge for 3 days. It turned out very tender but I prefer the seasoning and grilling of our ribeye steaks instead.

Followed the lunch with Die Hard and Oppenheimer along with a few naps. It was a good day.

Christmas dinner from Mrs G.

1703638294688.jpeg

Standing rib roast, Yorkshire pudding, (both with gravy) and green beans and brussel sprouts roasted with diced pancetta and rosemary. Light side salad and a nice old Bordeaux to accompany. @cover2 Mrs G did the roast in the oven at 325 merely placed on a rack above a shallow pan ( to catch the drippings for the pudding and the gravy) with zero seasoning and took it out when it hit about 130. It was very juicy and flavorful. I would have preferred to cook it on the grill, but we wouldn’t have had the juices to use.

I’ll have to try that. I actually went and bought a pan/rack recently for a piece of brisket that will work. The pic looks great!

Does anyone shop at Costco? A friendly stranger taught me this today about the R. It means it has been repackaged already once. It was on most of the fish but can be on the other meats as well. I can only guess that Sam’s has their own codes.

Had a lot of food over the last week, so I’m sharing some highlights. Bruschetta, some home made pasta including ravioli, pappardelle and what would probably be considered a thicker tagliatelle(wife doesn’t always follow rules), Cornish game hens and short ribs. Also enjoyed a few nice wines, one from an old friend in Nevada.
