Decided to try the traditional southwest Christmas thing this year of making some homemade tamales. Made pork ones and even some vegetarian ones for my daughter. Tasted the vegetarian ones and turned out pretty good. Can't wait for the Christmas eve spread.

We just had our xmas dinner, which I prepped and cooked all by myself as usual...FIGJAM:

Roast chicken

Pan-fried duck breasts

Chipolatas

Pigs in blankets

Pork & chestnut stuffing

Pork & cranberry stuffing

Sage & red onion stuffing

Roast potatoes

Par-boiled sprouts stir-fried with chorizo and roast chestnuts

Roast parsnips

Carrots & sweetcorn

Gravy from the juices, with a little help from a tube of bouillon concentrate and a splash of white wine.

My wife is partial to a good stuffing scythe, although I've tired of it somewhat in recent years.

Your dinner sounds far more compact and digestible. Did your wife enjoy it, despite the lack of a stuffing? Or did you save that for a midnight snack?

Yes, we both enjoyed it. The prime rib was tender and juicy. By the time the end of the night came, the wife was totally stuffed, haha.

+ For lunch: a fried egg sandwich.

Christmas dinner at Grandma's(sister-in-law's side) was nothing short of spectacular:

Baked Ham w/ glaze

Vegan ham with apricot-plum glaze

Pureed yams w/marshmallows...half with Bourbon, half without

Green bean casserole...vegan and regular

Asparagus

Roasted zucchini and squash

Brussels sprouts

Pureed squash with cranberries

Stuffing with stuffed mushrooms

Mashed potatoes and gravy

Corn muffins

Crescent rolls

Wine, beer, tequila, cider, juices, sodas, water.

Grandma handled most of the cooking, so my contribution was minimal...I just made a few things to nibble on before and after dinner:

1. Strawberry Santas

2. Fudge

3. Pumpkin-sherry bread

4. Rum balls

Other sweet treats and desserts other people provided were peanut butter fudge, coconut-lemon bars, cherry cordials, pumpkin pie, key lime pie.

Oh my goodness, I am in love with those strawberry Santa's! How cute! Everything looks so good! And I assume it was.

Streuth man makes our 6 lb capon seem like a light snack. Did you survive the calorie attack?
