We had the In-Laws over for Christmas dinner. We usually go to their house on Christmas Day and then to my family’s house for New Years Eve to do Christmas there. This works out best considering how difficult it is to try to coordinate multiple families and assorted family members all over the place.
( In college, a girl I knew pronounced them “Horse Doovers” and I still say that !)
Various sliced cheeses
Colossal Smoked Oysters
Standing Rib Roast
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Caramelized Butternut Squash
Green Beans with Almonds and Goat Cheese
THE MEAT !!!!!
But, I had a $5.00 discount and a $10.00 coupon so that made the price a much more reasonable $19.00
I poked a few garlic cloves in, covered her in oil, fresh ground pepper and kosher salt.
I cooked her outside on the gas grill. Please note the cast iron pan that was used for the cooking. I bought that sometime ago and if you are a serious cook(er), you must have at least one of these !!!
Sliced and plated up for serving. You may notice a distinct lack of PINK anywhere on the meat. I am the only one that would have appreciated cooking and serving this absolutely gorgeous piece of meat in the only manner fitting for it, so I made the ultimate sacrifice for the family and overcooked it. I hope no one thinks less of me for over cooking it !!
This was served with a nice sauce made of:
Whole Grain Mustard
5 pounds of Russets
8 ounces cream cheese
2 sticks of butter
Fresh garlic to taste.
These are homemade mashed potatoes, they should have some lumps in them and be “stick to your ribs”.
French Apple Tart
I’m the only one that likes oysters so I got to eat all of them.
Only $1.89 a can at the grocery store.
I was running around like a maniac and wasn’t able to photograph every thing !!!
Plenty of left overs to nibble on for the next couple of days.
