What's for dinner?


Since rose is home resting, and hopefully having a great Christmas, I thought I would carry on her tradition of asking what people are having for their holiday dinner.

Tonight, we're hoping to have some fresh Dungeness crab for a simple Christmas Eve dinner. We'll probably have some good sourdough and steamed artichoke with it.

For Christmas, I'm preparing our traditional meal of prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, gravy and an as-yet undetermined vegetable side dish. Simple, but satisfying.

Sounds good, Gop.

Not a big fan of crab but love artichoke. We don't get the best artichokes here, especially this time of year.

I don't think I've ever had Yorkshire pudding but I'd love to try it.

We'll be having shrimp tonight and filet mignon tomorrow.

We weren't able to get any crab today - the crab season in Northern California up to Washington has been delayed again until mid-January and the supply from the central coast is scarce. So we'll go to plan B and make chicken and dumplings tonight.

One of the benefits of living in California is that we can get good artichokes year around.

Simple dinner tonight, Baked spiral slice ham, baked beans, potato salad, pickles and salad. Not a typical Xmas Eve dinner but what we all wanted.

Banana pudding for a lighter dessert.

I've got the food but no guests, we are iced in the SW Portland hills. Made quiches for tonight with other bits and pieces. Hopefully tomorrow will work out better, we are having the same as Cooter with salad, roasted parsnips and green beans almondine with mushrooms. Homemade Apple pie for dessert with custard.

Re: What's for dinner?


Let me try this again. I seem to keep being dropped off the net.

Well, for the first time in 36 years, Becky and i will be spending Christmas alone. As both of our daughters and their families will be celebrating their Christmas in their respective homes in Graz, Austria and in Pinzano al Tagliamento, italy. Then day after tomorrow they will all meet up with my Two nephews and their families at a resort up in the Julian Alps for a ski holiday to bring in the New Year. Oh to be young and limber again. I guess it is time for the young ones to develop their own family Christmas traditions. Although Becky told me in no uncertain terms that she would never spent another Christmas seperated from her grandchildren by 6,000 miles and an ocean.

In any event, tonight will be a traditional italian christmas Eve seafood main course, plus an assortment of Triestine and Czech side courses. Then later tonight i will pay my obigatory visit to Midnight Mass with Becky. Afterwhich we will come home to have some cookies, candies, and hot chocolate while we exchange some small presents with each other

Tomorrow? Sleep late, dine on leftovers. And make a series of transatlantic phone calls.

Buon Natale everyone!

We had lunch at the home of our daughter's mother in law. We had cold ham, salad (3 varieties) sweet potatos and garlic flavoured smoked mussels. Then some sticky sweet thing called pavlova.
