The turkey is roasted. (Stuffed with croûtons from home made bread, carrot shavings, celery, onion, poultry seasoning, butter and an egg to bind it, with a bit of vegetable stock to moisten). Butter under the skin, poultry seasoning on top.
We’re also having “Scalloped Corn” and candied yams and Hawaiian Sweet Rolls (that are made with a Portuguese bread recipe, go figure…) and more. A ‘red and green’ two color Jello mould made with cranberries and regular cranberry sauce and several side dishes of vegetables brought by others (including at least mashed potatoes and gravy plus 2 others or more).
All for the Christmas Eve Feast, due to start in about an hour.
I’ll be busy finishing the cooking, and then doing all the other Christmas things for the next 24 hours or so.
To everyone: Thanks for an entertaining and interesting year, and enjoy your holiday. Be it Christmas, Winter Solstice, Hanukkah, or ‘whatever’ ;-)
This is as dark as it gets for this year. From this point onward, we have more light, and we are one day closer to warmth and lazy days of summer.
So put a Yule Log on the fire, or hoist a cup of mulled wine, or just curl up with a good book and and enjoy life. “This life is not a dress rehearsal. Take BIG bites! -E.M.Smith”
May each day and year be better than the last.
