Rib Roast and Yorkshire pudding. Always the same at my Mom's home and no complaints. I again get to make my lumpy mashed just like Thanksgiving.
My Gammie's Christmas was leg of lamb stuffed with garlic and seasoned well, roasted taters and carrots, and my favorite: roasted asparagus served on buttered toast points.
I do love lamb and will buy it when I find it on sale.
Speaking of which, how did you do the mashed potatoes for Thanksgiving?
Daugher #2 insists on ham and "cheesy potatoes". I've only done 1 turkey this year (normally do 2), so we're having turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, cheese potatoes, ham, fresh green beans, corn (frozen from Farmer's market), crab-stuffed mushroom caps, and maybe a fruit salad. Still looking for something "new" to add to the mix...
I used to try to do crabcakes for Christmas Eve dinner but this year I think we might do take-out Chinese, just to be different!
