Piffka, I'll drink a glass of Mondavi for you too. So far,
I have already 5 glasses promised http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/krank/liege.gif

No brandy for our mushrooms, as we have small children
eating with us. We grown ups will have some Calvados
afterwards.

Christmas Eve must be a blast at the Piffka house. One
of these days, we'll all come and visit Wink

Noddy24, is this what you're going to serve too?

Panzade, rib-roast sounds good to me, you never can
get wrong with that. I've never tasted Yorkshire pudding,
I don't trust the british to fabricate good meals.

Hey BiPolar, you've got an awful lot of potatoes there,
otherwise it sounds like a perfect Thanksgiving/Christmas
meal. I like your idea for additional dessert Wink

I try to cook a different meal every year, and since I don't care for turkey I have to be creative.

Tonight we're invited for dinner and my friends will serve
goose. They have no idea how to prepare it, but we're all
adventurous, I guess. I'll bring dessert along with a hidden
bottle of Pepto Bismol. http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/krank/schwitz.gif

All year long I feed Mr. Noddy chicken, turkey and fish. His idea of a holiday meal is a piece of pig. He's very conservative about side dishes--mashed potatoes and green peas--and since he's a long term diabetic and the house is full of tempting gifted sweets, I'll skip a formal desert.

I'm taking the standing rib roast out of the freezer as we speak.
It's gonna be an Uncle Scrooge spread this year.

Rib roast with Yorkshire Pudding and Roasted Potatos..
Anybody have any more suggestions for a Dickens Christmas feast?


Flaming Pudding? I saw that on a British version of Scrooge t'other night, what could be more Dickens-y than that? It looked amazing but I have no idea how to make it.

Oh dear. Well, maybe you can double up with someone for me. I won't mind.

I think it is very clever to do something different every year, though I'm still shocked that somebody wouldn't like turkey. Laughing


My mom used to make Yorkshire Pudding... she always made it at the very, very last minute after the beef was out of the pan. But it seems like it cooked quickly... 20 minutes or less?


Hi McKenzie! Sounds like a great meal. Tiramisu... very cool. Is it snowing there?

Jane Yorkshire pudding is a highlight of British cuisine...lol

Piffka, we've had very little snow. There's maybe 6 inches on the ground. It's cold, cold, though. This morning, with the wind chill, it was -40 C. Tomorrow is a high of -22, with the wind chill making it feel like -37. Nasty.

Panzade, you're about 3 months late for Christmas pudding, according to my mother's recipe. She'd cook it in early October and let it age until Christmas, occasionally opening it up and drizzling on a little more brandy.

No panzade, not me! When I was in England for Summer School many many Moons ago, the food I got, I still have nightmares from.

I just came back from picking up my venison and it's a
war zone out there. I'm all hoarse from cussing at the
other drivers who cut me off *argh* and at the store,
twice the went up my heels with the shopping cart *grrr*
By tomorrow, I'm ready to buy a hatchet http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/boese/wife.gif

Oh noooooo, now after I've read mckenzie's post,
I realized I forgot the asparagus, God - and bacon too *cry*

I'll drink some espresso now, before heading out again.....

You're right Jane...I was trying to put on a brave front but my school served the worst food I've ever been forced to eat. And to wash it down...squash, the worst liquid ever invented.

We do something different every year as well. This year we're having pork ribs, scalloped potatoes, green beans, corn on the cob and a cherry cheese pie for desert.

I see we share the same culinary experience panzade.
After I survived their food I could understand why they
like to drink hard liquor. One of my teachers was wasted
every day after 3 pm.

Puh, we were invited for a goose meal last night, today
we're going to Grandma for more food and tomorrow
I'll cook - by Sunday call me "blimp". http://www.mainzelahr.de/smile/geschockt/erstaunt01.gif

Montana, I love pork ribs, I could eat that for xmas too,
except I have jewish friends come over for dinner Wink

How do you prepare them Montana?

HARD SAUCE:

Soften--not melt--a quarter pound of butter and squish in as much powdered sugar as it will hold. Work in a little of the best brandy and chill.

Serve with your boiled pudding or hot pies. Seasoned gluttons open the refrigerator and snack on slivers--little or large depending on your digestive system.
