Christmas Dinner!

Christmas dinner was a success! We all had a good time and ate too much. Which says good things for my cooking! The only thing that didn't turn out was the mashed potatoes. I forgot about them until very late and burned them badly. (We didn't really miss them though) The caramelized onions and sauteed porcini mushrooms from that recipe made their way into the gravy, where everyone enjoyed them anyway.

Here are your pictures. I have updated the recipes to include these too now. And I'll get the Cranberry Tart up soonest. The Fruity Bundt Cake also never made it. Good thing too. Everyone was much too stuffed. I'll save that for New Year's too.

zesty onion crostini

Bah, Humbug!
