Also pictured, below, is last week's experimental "Biff a la Lindstrom," which was delicious. I made it into a sort of inside-out deal, putting several of the ingredients on top.
Aside from way too many Christmas cookies, here is what we'll be eating, this week.
Sunday: Bacon-Onion Quiche and Salad
Monday: Sausages and Peppers over Rice
Tuesday: Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad
Wednesday: Game Hens with Couscous and Zucchini
Friday: Christmas Dinner: Pork Loin with Port Wine Cherry Sauce; Red Potatoes; Green Beans
For years, I made my mother's Clam Chowder for Christmas Eve. The first year we lived here, I went to make it, and it was just too dang hot. I also needed to finish wrapping, clean the house, get Christmas breakfast ready . . . and a new tradition was born: Take-out Christmas Eve. I find it really de-stresses me.
As promised, the pictures mentioned above.
