and to all a goodnight..

It is that time of year.  Christmas, my favorite time of year.  Stories, true stories, of peace and good will abound, there is a kind of "magic" that attends this season... and I love it.  It brings me joy and I hope it does you, as ell.  

To all my friends on the OT, to those I've met and those I haven't, to all who chance to tarry here, a very Happy Christmas to you and a very Merry New Year.  Keep faith, keep safe, God bless you.

Unless I get the "big buck" I saw in my front yard the other night, I won't be back online except to check email for a few days.  I start cooking the Christmas Feast today and intend to give undiverted attention to my family... some payback for all the time I spend at work.

Just so you know, here's the menu:

Parsnip vichyssoise 
Fresh green beans
Spiced butternut squash
Homemade cranberry relish
Pear and apple compote
Roasted Pork Loin (marinated in a Calvados/garlic/sage sauce for 3 days before cooking then browned in the marinade and slow cooked) stuffed with sh*take mushroom and sage dressing and fresh sausage and buttermilk cornbread dressing on the side
Homemade Porter House rolls
Dan's Christmas Bread Pudding with Amaretto sauce (it's an orange/cranberry sweetbread pudding, takes two days to make)
Perhaps a pumpkin pie

It's a tradition I've maintained since my oldest daughter was young.  

I wish you all could join us... maybe some day...



May your Christmas be as blessed as I know mine will be...

Very respectfully,
Dan

Have a wonderful time with your family Dan!  Good time of year for re-bonding.  Best to all you other guys and your families.
 
Will need to diet after reading that menu - well done!

Merry Christmas to all of you.   As we all sit down to enjoy the special blessings of being with our families and friends lets also give thanks, and ask God to protect our troops who are serving in harms way not able to spend this Christmas at home.
