I dunno, I got my Omaha steaks order, lots to choose from...but since I haven't had a decent steak in years, guess what I'm going for?  I might eat 2 of em.

Traditional today.   All cooked inside.

 

Standing rib roast, mashed potatoes w/gravy and green beans.

 

Mrs. Skinsfan made several batches of cookies, so no pie or cake.     Beer, lots of beer and bourbon.

 

Merry Christmas!

My daughter made spinach ricotta cheese ravioli! Delicious! Granddaughter helped too. I made gingerbread yesterday and it was good too.

 

So happy to be with my family, I lasted 4.5 hours.

What's on the Christmas dinner menu?

 

Mine is:

Honey glazed ham with pears and cranberries https://www.marthastewart.com/340494/honeyed-ham-with-pears-and-cranberries

green bean casserole (classic)

cream corn (homemade)

loaded baked potatoes

figgy pudding (first time trying it.) https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/851637/figgy-christmas-pudding

 

 

I also made a spinach salad which turned out to be the winner among my extended family. Recipe here (along with creamed corn as well) https://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/make-my-holiday-dinner-menu

My sister gave me a Sous Vide cooker for Christmas. I had never heard of them, but I can't wait to try it out on some shrimp.

My coworker swears by it for filet mignon

@LadySkinsFan no need to cry, this is our tradition. My wife really doesn't like holiday cooking so we have quiet Christmases.

 

You all make up for it throughout the year!

Mr. Brew batch in (Pilsner)

And pizza on wood pellet (hickory, oak, apple) - rubbed with melted butter, garlic, oregano and used some regular sauce with some garlic hot sauce mixed in and a blend of mozzarella and cheddar with pepperonis and banana peppers

Bottom burned a bit but top flavor was good-  feel like the oil coated plate screwed with temp, probably try a closed vent straight on rack next time

I like my pizza extra crispy, doesn't matter which side. 

(And I work in a pizza joint that's been in business for 38 years this past October). 

Nicely done. 👍

So the Caps started falling apart, and I had gotten 2 of the boneless pork chops from my Omaha Steaks order out...

Marinating in honey mustard & a little pepper. They're pretty thin, so Imma go with 10 minutes at 300, and a quick broil at the end for a crisp.

So tomorrow New Years luck dinner is from the Pennsylvania Dutch pork, sauerkraut, and potatoes in the slow cooker for hours. Using boneless chops, not making dumplings because health. I'm making black eyed peas for Southern luck.  I don't know what they do hear in TX. Will find out for next year. Bbq maybe?

So you're saying Texas isn't in the south?

My daughter just brought over some greens and cornbread muffins, so my year should be covered in Luck. Not Andrew!
