We had a wonderful Christmas this year, and if I do not get pictures posted, I might just forget the menu and the fun!!
This was my first year to cook a Prime Rib. While it was a bit pricey, it ended up tasting wonderful and everyone enjoyed it!! I did forget the cranberry salad I has planned to make, but otherwise the menu was great!
Of course we enjoyed our tradition of Christmas donuts, even including some gluten-free! And thanks to a sweet friend we had some wonderful gluten-free/Paleo Coffee Cake from Colorful eats!!
Christmas day was fun with family from both sides here, my mom and Louie came over early for the stocking opening, donuts and presents! Robert’s folks were with us that week as well! It was a crowded family room! And despite the December date, we were not able to have a fire, since I think the temps were in the 70’s that day!! Crazy Texas!!
Everyone loved their gifts – lots of food and candy was passed around. My favorite gifts given were the ones my kids made! Jacob made jerky from his deer this fall, Peter made plant stands from slices of the tree Robert cut down in the backyard, and Eli made soap dishes for my goat milk soap!! I loved them all and loved watching them make and give their gifts!!
