We always used to travel to someone's house for Christmas, until a couple of years ago. Then we started spending Christmas at home, just the three of us. Which is fine because it eliminates any drama, hurt feelings, or wondering where we are going to go for the holiday. Much simpler this way.
We used to just have appetizers and whatnot all day, which was great. But for some reason, this year I had the urge to make a roast beef dinner.
I have a really good recipe using and eye round roast. It uses bacon.
Look! I didn't overcook it! It was a Christmas miracle! And there was bacon.
I even successfully made homemade gravy. I made (homemade) mashed potatoes and "wheels" (fresh carrots cut into circles - it's time consuming but it tastes better because it's made with love). (We only had to wear a holter for 24 hours afterwards to make sure our hearts kept beating after all that red meat and bacon, ha ha!!)
What did you have for Christmas dinner?
