Merry Christmas

The prettiest Xmas tree - ignore the bad focus

How it all comes together
It must be the miracle of Christmas
A full day at the office
then the rush to buy Christmas gifts at the very last minute on Xmas Eve

How I ever threw together a boeufe bourguinon, roasted potatoes with Herbs du Provence, salad and Cote du Rhone
at the last minute for my small family of two adult children I'll never know...
maybe it has something to do with 2 decades plus of practice.
With no time to pull out the fine china and sterling silver it all seemed rather pedestrian
But it worked for our simple family of three.
A Very Simple Family Christmas Eve Dinner
Our small family of three enjoyed a simple evening a trois together
and I hope that all of you who celebrate Christmas enjoyed your family too
Wishing all of you and yours a wonderful Christmas

That's what it is all about. Family time. And your menu sounds so yummy! I did a simple Turkey and we ate on TV trays in the living room. We were couch potatoes after visiting with family lol!

Jill, I didn't have time this year to cook my traditional prime rib and yorkshire pudding...but we enjoyed our dinner.
God...I don't know if my liver can take New Year's Eve. Do you think that we can get a two for one special at Betty Ford?
