Food, Glorious Food

As you may or may not know, we're spending Christmas this year at home, having visited folks at Thanksgiving. This means that I can COOK NONSTOP FOR DAYS. Well, not me entirely, but that is the basic shape of the holiday plan here. Observe the menu for the next few days:

December 24th:
  • roast beef
  • green beans (possibly two batches, one Southern-style squishy and one Northern-style tender but crisp)
  • extremely sweet potatoes
  • popovers
  • spinach, onion, and chickpeas (I make this all the time, and I should think of a catchier name for it)
  • pecan pie

December 25th:
  • lasagna
  • salad
  • pumpkin custard
  • pumpkin cake (there is some chance this may end up being a brunch instead)

December 26th (includes various local friends and reveals our severe dining chair shortage):
  • roast ducks
  • wild rice stuffing
  • mashed potatoes
  • broccoli casserole
  • apple pie

plus whatever the various local friends are bringing, which is currently expected to include:
  • cranberry relish
  • nut loaf
  • grapefruit tart

and if the rest of the various local friends do not bring vegetables, we'll add:
  • cabbage & apples

Not to mention various cookies, beverages, fancy holiday chocolates, etc.

I love feast days.
