I am unabashedly proud of our Christmas feast... I cooked a 30 pound pig in
the brick firepit on the back patio of our new house, and each member of my
family brought one dish to contribute to the feast. Even my kids each chose
a recipe and cooked it themselves. We had black beans, yellow rice, fried
plantains, corn pudding, sweet potato and pineapple curry, mashed sweet
potatoes, a huge cheese and charcuterie board, ice cream cake, and banana
pudding. There's pictures here if anyone's interested:

The List has been rather quiet. Maybe like me, most of you have been

I am reminded that We used to celebrate and share what we were served and
ate over the holidays.
To get that ball rolling, we had lamb for Christmas lunch, pannetoni,
stollen, cookies, and meringue mice for munchies, and for supper ate popcorn
while at the evening showing of "Les Mis" that evening. 

New Years will be at home with either steaks or a prime rib roast, depending
on the weather. Can I grill or not? We arrived home to snow.
Salad, potatoes, maybe a pie.

Santa brought me the six volume set of A Cultural History of Food and
Modernist Cuisine at Home for which I am very grateful.
