Christmas Dinner

Post by ed » Sun Dec 15, 2019 9:22 pm

We have made the same thing for 10-15 years. Filet w/ Stilton Cheese sauce, brissel sprouts, twice cooked ptatoes. Veggies vary, eat the same.

Time for a change (maybe). We were thinking poached Striper /remoulade alonge with eggplant parm. We are thinking now of a ham but want a sauce of some sort. Not stupid pineapple/apple/brown suger crap. Something interesting.

Thoughts???

The French traditional way for ham is "Jambon braisé au madère" (braised ham with Madeira wine). Here's a link you can put through some translation machine: http://www.recettesdecuisine.tv/recette ... adere.html.

There are numerous variants, with beer, cider (and pears), &c. Improvise.

Cut lozenges from the rind so it won't split during the long cooking:

Meatloaf on lettuce.

We always have a prime rib. I look forward to continuing that tradition, simply because I love me some prime rib

That sounds better than goose, sous-vide or otherwise. Certainly better than meatloaf on ... blah ... lettuce.

What are the sides?

Chani makes the best mashed potatoes you ever had and I make a pretty decent gravy from the roast’s pan drippings. Usually also a salad and some crescent rolls.

In reality...traditional Christmas dinner at Dad's & Mom's house involved a huge bowl of spaghetti thoroughly mixed with extra-virgin olive oil, anchovies, and asparagus...or was the asparagus on the side...no onions!...plus red wine...stuffed mushrooms...huge salad...wine...breaded smelt for good luck...wine...breaded calamari...baked bread...wine...asparagus again...those damn little pastries that look like cookies but are really hard biscuits with pepper cooked into them...wine...tons of real cookies...wine...screaming children...screaming adults...espresso that was basically rocket fuel to offset all that wine...Dad did all the cooking...you'd be taking your life in your hands if you interrupted him!...Dad gave the toast "Salud!"...Mom beamed around at everybody...alas, now t'is but a memory.

You'd have loved it. We sure did.
