Merry Christmas!

For years our Christmas menu was a repeat of Thanksgiving, which we would supplement with ham. I proposed we make a change to the boss with trepidation, but to my surprise she embraced the idea enthusiastically. We then ran it up the flagpole to invite comment from other family members, but again, there was nary a complaint.

We reached consensus on this because we were all tired of repeating the same menu. Now the hard work began choosing what would come next.

Everyone enjoys a good piece of beef and we considered steak, but that also seemed repetitive. Then it dawned on us that it should be prime rib, because it’s fit for a King.. From there it was easy adding potatoes, a vegetable and a dessert.

With some champagne for the festive holiday spirit, a good red wine to accompany the meat and something sweet to finish it off, our new menu was set.

Then I discovered why my better half was so happy. She always prepares the Thanksgiving meal and informed me it was my turn. I was the cook in charge of the whole shebang.
