A Snowy Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas!

I'm sitting in my kitchen, making some holiday-inspired treats, listening to Christmas tunes, and looking out on a very while wonderland.


 

The Christmas Eve Menu:

  • Roasted Cornish Game Hen (with lemon and rosemary)

  • The family herbed stuffing

  • A green salad


The verdict: It was okay. Not great. The hen was the best part (stuffed the body cavity with 1/4 lemon, garlic clove, and rosemary. Started for 25 minutes at 450 degrees F, then basted it with white wine, lemon and chicken broth, turned it down to 350 and basted it every 8-10 minutes for another 35 minutes until it came to temp


The stuffing was not a hit. Trader Joes didn't have breakfast pork sausage, so we subbed for hot italian sausage, and I didn't use enough broth so it was too crunchy.


Next year: we are going to resume our tradition of dining out (crab for me!).



 

The Treats:

  • Saltine cracker toffee

  • Snowball Cookies

  • A pillsbury sugar free chocolate cake and frosting (making that on Christmas day)


Had some issues with the temperatures of everything, so the toffee crack is in the frigid garage firming up.




 

Christmas Day Menu:

Brunch

  • Hasbrowns

  • Eggs

  • Bacon


Snacks:

  • Assorted air fryer treats from the freezer

  • Cheese & Crackers


Dinner:

  • Rosemary Prime Rib Roast

  • Horseradish Sauce

  • Scalloped Potatoes

  • Green Bean Casserole

Thanks for stopping by!
