We were going to do a goose and a prime rib, but my wife decided on a turkey and a prime rib because we have some finicky eaters coming over.

So, I'm doing the turkey and prime rib on the water smoker filled with spiced apple juice.

My wife is making a bunch of stuff and started cooking on Monday, I don't even know what it's going to be.

We made home made eggnog last night with an entire fifth of Myer's Dark Rum in it. It will certainly warm you up.

Probably along these lines...


Main Ingredients

2 each 8oz. Rib Eye steaks, 1/2 lb Stilton Cheese (softened), 1 stick unsalted butter (softened), 1-1/2 cup dry white wine, 4 Tsp. freeze-dried green peppercorns, 1 cup heavy cream, 4 Tsp. fresh chopped parsley

Cooking Instructions

In a bowl mix cheese and butter together until mixture is smooth. In a saucepan boil the wine with the peppercorns until it is reduced to 1 tablespoon, add the cream and boil the liquid until it is reduced by one half. Reduce the heat to moderately low, whisk the cheese mixture a little at a time into the cream mixture, then whisk in the parsley. Remove the pan from the heat and keep the sauce warm. Preheat a grill pan or charcoal grill. Season steaks with salt and pepper. Grill steaks for 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium rare. Let the steaks stand for 5 minutes until serving. Serve the stilton sauce on the side and garnish with watercress.

We're Scandi. We do everything between 6:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. We might wander back to church in the late afternoon on Christmas Day but that's it. :D

Woot!

I did trojan work and got the two feet of snow cleared off the back deck and braved the barely plowed streets to get a fresh cylinder for the grill!

Tonight we dine like kings on seared seafood!!!

Leftover ham!
Family emergency has us all running around like crazy people!
I don't think anyone feels like eating... let alone cooking this year!
But I refuse to lose The Christmas Spirit!
I keep telling everyone Merry Christmas and offering them egg nog, or whiskey or wine!!!

Merry Christmas!

Had a dinner today at work. Smoked turkey, ham, all kinds of other great stuff including homemade pie.

Rule #1 of re-gifting, remove the original gift tag. Employee brought in secret Santa gift for manager....it was a little odd, a stuffed little bear...but hey it's the thought that counts...until manager sees the tag on the ear.....It was TO: (person that regifted) From: (her boyfriend) :)

I will take my mother out to dinner tomorrow. But, part of the city is without water, I happen to be in that part...auto accident wiped out major hydrant and holes had to be dug in the middle of the highway...resturants are closed...but hopefully this will be resolved by AM....this all started this morning!

The Casinos brought in porta potties.....the gambling must go on!
