The Three Days of Christmas

Christmas for me was all about eating. I know that is pretty standard for everyone when it comes to the holidays, but this year I think I really took it up a notch. Let me explain it to you in a more simple way, in a song (a much shortened song).

On the first day of Christmas, or Christmas eve, I made for dinner: gruyere and chive puffs for appetizers, lemon and herb cornish hen, green beans with crisp shallots, wild mushroom and gruyere gratin, and roasted carrots. (You’ll have to let your imagination help you hear the melody to 12 Days of Christmas with that).

On the second night of Christmas, or Christmas Day, I made for dinner: a 5.71 lb bone in prime rib roast for two, a Madeira wine sauce, cheesy potatoes, and brussel sprouts.

I’m not normally the person who buys the meat in the house so when I got up to the meat counter I panicked and bought enough for a small army. Surprisingly though, there was not much leftovers; it was that good.

On the third day of Christmas, or the Friday after, I made for dinner: traditional polish cheese pierogies and kielbasa.
