So despite Alex's desire to do something exotic and interesting for the big holiday dinner, we'll be sticking to simple family favorites. Our Christmas dinner will be quiet this year...just us and two good friends. We'll miss having our family around us but at least we'll have a dinner that reminds us of home. I'm pretty sure even Alex will be happy with all the holiday comfort food. :)
Here's what will be on our dinner table for Christmas this year...
Alton Brown's City Ham
Homemade Baked Macaroni and Cheese
Brioche (I already got a brioche pan for Christmas, now I just need a recipe!)
Pumpkin Pie with Maple Whipped Cream**
**this could be the best whipped cream on the planet, just add 1 tablespoon of good maple syrup to a cup of cream and mix until fluffy**
Have a Merry Christmas or a joyful holiday of another sort. Enjoy your family, friends, and of course, dinner. ;)
