Ilaine Posted December 24, 2013 Share Posted December 24, 2013 Unlike Thanksgiving, which is always a foodie ordeal, Christmas is generally relatively low key. Younger son Nick's birthday is on the 23rd, we always have a feast Christmas eve, so by the time Christmas Day rolls around we are kind of partied out. This year, even more so, because younger son is dating a woman whose family is in Charlottesville, so they will celebrate Christmas here on Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day in C'ville. Today, Christmas Eve, roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, gravy, and braised little onions, the family version of old reliable. Some kind of green vegetable, I am leaning toward escarole, others are suggesting broccoli. Might compromise on broccolini/asparation. Will attempt gluten free brioche again, this time with Thomas Keller's recipe and his Cup4cup flour. Tomorrow, older son can have leftovers and I will roast a duck. Nobody but me and my husband like duck, but what the heck, it's a three rib roast beef, 8 pounds of beef, there will be lots of leftover roast beef, etc. What are your family traditions? Or, are you doing something different this year? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
