Christmas Day update!
So this year my daughter invited Ralph and i over for dinner. It was really cold out but no snow yet.The bus schedule was interesting in that it had a Christmas schedule but no one knew what it was.
I loved going to Jen and Martin's place because they are foodies!! No plain boiled carrots for them :) You know your going to enjoy every crumb and the most fun was watching them cook. Well that is until Martin started to cry while chopping the shallots.
We also got to meet Allie who is an adorable kitten they adopted. What a sweetie pie!
On to dinner:
Just before dinner Martin brought out the homemade pickles, pickled green and yellow beans and pickled hot peppers! Oh yes my sinus' were definitely clear after that. And then onto the main meal.
Turkey lots and lots of delicious turkey, stuffing with duck, roasted carrot, parsnip and potato, green beans with bacon, shallots and dijon mustard, gravy and homemade cranberry sauce! Oh my!!
You know you've hit the jackpot when they offer you 4 different kinds of sea salt :) Smoked sea salt is delish.
