Christmas Dinner

This year my mom took over the cooking of the traditional Christmas feast. She made a standing rib roast, which my stepdad expertly carved:

... as well as Yorkshire pudding with the pan drippings:

My mom took these pics because I was feeding the baby, so I don't have closeups of the green beans with almonds or the mashed potatoes, but here's a table shot:

And my plate with a little bit of everything:

The meat was done perfectly, nice and rare. Everything was fantastic and a great meal to celebrate our first Christmas with Baby Girl. Dessert was a yummy, dense chocolate cake:

... and coffee. I could have eaten half the cake, it was that good.
Pin It!


  1. Looks delicious!! Do you have a recipe for that chocolate cake??

  2. Sorry Stephanie, the cake was store-bought.

  3. That rib roast looks A-MA-ZING. Done perfectly. Yum!
