We Ate Too Much…But It Was Good!
Glen and I decided not to exchange gifts this year. Instead we planned an extra special dinner. Our original plan was to have one of Glen’s co-workers smoke a leg of lamb for us. However, he fell on the ice and buggered himself up pretty good. So on to plan B. Glen and I went to Costco and bought a beautiful standing rib roast. I decided on an Emeril Lagasse recipe for the roast. You roast garlic, mash it up and mix in chopped fresh rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper and then smear it all over the roast.
To go along with this wonderful piece of meat we had mashed potatoes and roasted brussell sprouts.
Petey has been such a good boy all year, so for his Christmas gift he got one of the rib bones from the standing rib roast. He was super happy!
Glen and I also have started a nice little tradition. We had a fire going in the fireplace. Our fireplace is gas, (propane), which is expensive, so we decided this would also be something nice that is just for us for Christmas.
We had a wonderful Christmas. Hope everyone else did too!
