#1 What's on the menu for Christmas?12-21-2012, 08:46 PM
My mom's holiday is Christmas Eve and she does a traditional Italian seafood feast with all sort of different fish dishes.
My holiday is Christmas Day and I have decided on my menu.
Crown Roast of Pork
Baked potatoes in the oven that I slice in wedges with evoo, onions and breadcrumbs and rosemary for seasoning
Broccoli rabe sauteed in evoo and onions
Tomato and fennel salad
My guests will bring desserts, but I did make Hello Dollies yesterday as well.

BTW, I never made a crown roast before but I have made all sorts of roasts in the past and I hear this one is very juicy. I'm not stuffing it as I've read it tends to overcook the meat while you're trying to get the stuffing hot.
I'm going to season the roast with rosemary, thyme, s & p, and olive oil. I also think I will roast on a bed of granny smith apples and onions as I think that will make a nice base for the gravy....and apples and pork go well together.
I think I will begin cooking it at 450 for 15-20 minutes and then cook it at 350degrees for the remainder.
If anyone has roasted these before, please chime in with any suggestions.

Ham and Galliano. The standing rib roast (rare) with Galliano is for New Years Day.
Then many, many creative left overs in the days and weeks to come.

Can't make it to join the family this year, so I'm pot-lucking with some others in the same situation.
My contribution will be cornbread stuffing with apples and sausage...

Christmas Eve we're having friends over who don't have family here, so making this our family dinner. We're having spiral sliced ham, macaroni and cheese brought by our friend, "Merry Cherry" trifle as dessert. I'm also going to make fresh green beans sauteed in a bit of EVO and red onions and garlic.
