My house smells good [Dec. 14th, 2008|09:35 pm]
Bought the christmakkuh tree - it's fab.  7' noble fir and the entire house reflects the quality of this thing that gave it's life for my 3 week enjoyment.  Decorations to come. 

A Christmas Carol was good - not as fantastic as last year, but good.  Dinner was fantastic (pat myself on the back for choosing) as was our amazing hotel Hotel Sorrento (again with the pats on the back).  Chris and I slept in, then slept some more and didn't get out of bed until 10:20AM - I don't think that's happened since Nicola was born.  

Onto xmas - another food holiday that makes me all warm and crazy inside.  My in laws will be serving a roast beef of some sort, so I will bring
  • asiago gratin potatoes with bacon
  • creamy pearl onions
  • peas with parmesan
  • yeast rolls
  • mocha pie
I'll do my own roast beef tenderloin some days later with goat cheese and roasted garlic mashed potatoes and some roasted asparagus.  Desert christmas night will be hot chocolate cakes, after my typical appetizer party.

I eat too much.
