    Is that what ghey people eat for Christmas dinner?

    It's officially heading into the holiday season, the high tech rednecks are emailing, the other's are calling...
    I am the holder of the sacred family recipe box going back several generations. One would think that after a while they would catch on and write these recipes down and start their own collection? nooooo I have to go dig through and find the obscure recipe prepared for Christmas dinner dessert back in 1962 by Aunt Hazel who cut it out of the back of a Lutheran Ladies magazine...
    I smile because I don't know what the heck is going on.

    Hm...Christmas Pudding!

    • 2 ounces seedless raisins
    • 2 tablespoons sherry wine
    • 3 ounces glace fruits
    • 4 ounces butter
    • 4 ounces confectioners sugar
    • 2 ounces ground almonds
    • 1 (8 ounce) package trifle sponge cakes (or ladyfingers)
    • 1 (5 ounce)` carton double cream (heavy cream)
    • 2 tablespoons milk

    Method
    1. Lightly butter a 1 pint pudding basin.
    2. Drain mandarin oranges, reserving syrup.
    3. Put sultanas and raisins in a small bowl. Stir in sherry.( If you prefer to make without alcohol, you can substitute 2 tablespoons reserved mandarin syrup. )
    4. Chop glace fruits if they are not already chopped. Chop mandarin oranges. Set aside.
    5. Cream together butter and confectioners sugar until light and fluffy. Fold in ground almonds and glace fruits. Crumble sponge cake into mixture. Fold in oranges, sultanas, raisins and syrup.
    6. Place mixture in pudding basin and press down firmly. Level top with back of spoon. Cover with foil and chill in refrigerator overnight or for 4 days.

    To accompany roasted goose/turkey/beef, maybe baked red onions will be nice...It's simple!

    Baked Red Onions

    • 1/2 cup warm water
    • 1 small bay leaf
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 4 large unpeeled red onions, cut in half

    Method

    1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
    2. Mix together water, bay leaf and balsamic vinegar. Set aside.
    3. Heat oil in ovenproof skillet until almost smoking. Put in onion halves, cut side down. Brown on cut side, about 8 minutes.
    4. Remove from heat. Pour liquid over onions, cover and cook in a preheated 375° F oven for 15 minutes.
    5. Remove from pan and place cut side up in serving dish.
    6. Pour liquid remaining in skillet over the onions.

    Serves 6 - 8

    It is indeed. I have done a seafood lasagne for Christmas dinner, loaded with crab, shrimp, and lobster. With spinach in the cheese layer, it's a festive red, green, and white.

    Christmas is my holiday. This year, I am keeping it simple..

    Antipasto with assorted cheeses, sopressata, olives, fresh mozarella with roasted red peppers and garlic bread

    Fettucini Alfredo served with Roasted Shrimp

    Wedge Salad with iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, bacon served with Blue Cheese dressing

    Dessert will probably be apple turnovers in puff pastry, baked right before serving and I'll add a scoop of vanilla icecream.
