Christmas eats

I have two goals for Christmas day: stay in my pj, and eat a lot!

This is a FEAST day, after all!

Marcus sliced off some of the prime rib roast
for us to eat for breakfast.  :o)
mini Mindy Buns from Decadent Creations (my fav)
--brioche roll with custard filling, dusted with sugar
We ate these all day.
And these.

(nice PJs, Marcus)
Visitors arrive!  Grammae and Papa and the R family.
 In past years we've gotten together at grammae and papa's house for a casual Christmas dinner, but with grandma and grandpa in town the last 2 years, we've stayed at home.  It's kinda nice to stay at home!  So this year we invited the party to come to us.  :o)

We had the four major Christmas Food Groups covered: prime rib, broccoli-rice casserole, cake, and alcohol.  Talk about a FEAST!

Meghan also brought a salad which was very
responsible of her.  ;o)
This was the best prime rib we ever had.  Marcus followed the Cooks Illustrated suggestions and seared it then roasted it at a low temp for a long time.  It was perfectly cooked!  And Marcus and I ate the leftovers for a week, yum!

The whole meal was just wonderful, a great mix of flavors.  LOVE LOVE LOVE grammae's broccoli-rice casserole, and the salad matched everything so well.  Add some nice wine and we were all set.
