Dinner was fairly simple. I made lumpy red mashed potatoes with a ton of butter and feta cheese and roasted vegetables with a ginger maple dressing which was good, if I may say so myself. Our entree was supposed to be a 30 lb. turkey which I bought on sale after Thanksgiving only to find out it was too large for my oven. It was a blessing in disguise because I ended up donating it to a church and ordering the Beef Tournedos from Specific Pacific. The filet mignons were marinated in Bordelaise sauce and wrapped in a generous slice of thick bacon. Everyone enjoyed the juicy and tender steak.
I wanted to cover all bases so I had two desserts. I made a Leche Flan which was a hit and I also bought a Smores Pie from Bristol Farms which everyone enjoyed. Terri also brought a homemade Cassava pie.
It was an evening of good food, lots of laughter and love! It was a Merry Christmas indeed.
