Happy Christmas Day! I hope that you all are having a great holiday.
We spent last night at the house of my oldest friend, celebrating with his family and eating the biggest Prime Rib roast I have ever seen, expertly roasted in his Big Green Egg. I’m not necessarily one for large hunks of red meat (I almost never cook it at home), but it’s hard to say no to something as beautifully done as this.
Today is going to be quiet. I’m making Yeasted Brown Butter Waffles for breakfast with a few things alongside–some nice fruit, good bacon, eggs. Dinner will be a bit different since we had Prime Rib last night. Dungeness Crab served with drawn deviled butter, good garlic bread, and Roasted Mushroom Salad with Hazelnuts. Roasting the Oyster mushrooms gives them a meaty depth of flavor that is beautifully complimented by the Manchego and hazelnuts.
After all of that, perhaps a nice walk…or just collapsing on the couch to watch “A Christmas Story” over and over again?
Whatever holiday you celebrate this season, I hope that it is filled with great people, food, stories, laughter, and happiness.
