    Default The Festive Food Thread....

    ...where you post pictures of your xmas feast, and your friends + family look at you strangely and ask why the hell you are taking snaps of your grub.

    Breakfast - Blintzes with Gravlax


    Lunch - Pork, Roast Potato, Sweet Potato, Stuffing wrapped in Bacon etc (pre gravy)


    and then - a bloody huge cake

    I'm not taking pictures, but:

    Breakfast was a savory bread pudding with rosemary bread, cheese, eggs, andouille, and other good stuff. Dinner will be prime rib with roasted potatoes and green beans, and I made a Williamsburg orange cake for dessert.

    I've also been experimenting with festive drinks, my favorites being hot buttered rum and hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps.

    Breakfast was hashbrowns and turkey sausage, from the freezer. I'll be skipping the dinner festivities, because I have work to do. So my educated guess is that dinner will be edamame or something else that I can just thaw out.

    Valarie those table settings make me hesitant to post. Very festive!

    I'll go ahead anyway, I guess.

    Breakfast was raspberry walnut pancakes and chocolate chip pancakes. With the maple syrup my mother got last time she was in Michigan.


    Our actual big Christmas dinner was on Sunday when my sister and her family were in town. I took no pictures of that dinner. Today's meal was good, too. I only thought to take pictures after everything was done, though:


    Fried, seasoned potatoes and (Dutch-style) pigs in the blanket


    Milk, applesauce (neither of which are exciting, neither of which I consumed) and homemade cranberry sauce (yum.)

    Update: The lovely folks at Trader Joe's have provided me with a Christmas dinner fit for a queen, consisting of gnocchi dumplings in a gorgonzola cream sauce. As an aside, I will be having root beer and some Chanukah gelt. Call it fusion.

    Breakfast was fried potatos, scrambled eggs, bacon and toast. Bacon was from the local meat house, and the eggs were from our rancher friend.

    Dinner was Alaskan king crab, Prime Rib, sesame roasted snap peas, crescent rolls and baked potatos. Again, Prime rib was from the local meat house, and it was great. Dessert is going to be a Creme Brulee, per my brother's request.

    damn, idrive, you don't fuck around with christmas.

    for breakfast/brunch/lunch we had sausage rolls and croissants w/ ham and cheese from this bakery called paris pastry. we also had fruit & custard pie and mimosas (i had just regular OJ tho).

    dinner was honey baked ham, roast beef, a scalloped potatoes casserole and green bean casserole with hot rolls, some sort of salad with nuts (which prevented me from partaking in it) and jello salads. and a ton of different wines but i just had sparkling apple cider.

    desert was a pretty good mocha yule log, fresh apple pie, or fresh pumpkin pie, whichever we wanted.

    ps fuck you flickr for taking over the entire "yahoo images" section. seriously how the hell do you hot link from flickr???

    I brined a turkey last night and spent much of today tending to it in its smoker with apple and plum chips/wood. I'd never smoked a turkey before and it did turn out pretty good. I've got a week of leftovers but I think I'm still a fan of the traditional oven roasting.

    I think we ate mostly chips and cheese and beans and salsa yesterday because I didn't feel like going to my sister's house. My brother-in-law is insane.

    edit: we also ate a bunch of sugar cookies that we made in festive Christmas shapes on Christmas Eve. Thank God for cookie mix from the store. I used to make sugar cookies from scratch and that was a pain in the ass.

    i did that once, not in a cool smoker but a big grill so the same idea ... and mine was good too, but not worth the effort when you can just throw it in a bag and shove that sucker in the oven ... and i deep fired one once, never again yikes .... canx**

    I've had smoked and I've had oven roasted...I have to say that smoked wins, hands down. It's all about wet hickory chips.

    All these meals sound delicious. I didn't think to take pictures.

    My breakfast was Kashi cereal because that's what I always have.

    Lunch was a spinach-feta quiche thing and mimosas.

    Dinner was turkey (which I cooked myself woot!), cranberry-sourdough stuffing, roasted winter vegetables, brussel sprouts with balsamic vinaigrette and roasted okinawan sweet potatoes.
