We started the grocery shopping on late Saturday afternoon on the 20th, on Sunday we went for the pork neck bones for the gravy. As soon as we came home I started to make the stock that would become the gravy. The preceding Monday I had ordered some of the "pork-tastic" yummies and they needed to be picked up. Monday morning was spent in three different markets. Then Tuesday another three groceries. When all was said and done, we had everything for our most wonderful Holiday.
I roasted the pecans for the baked brie. I really like brie when it is baked, but when you add jam and nuts, well now that is just heavenly.
Andrew put a wonderful crust of seasoning on the prime rib. We used the probe thermometer for both roasts to ensure that both pieces of meat where cooked to the perfect temperature.
My Mom gifted me with this most beautiful cup, so I enjoyed my morning coffee.
