25 December 2010 – White Christmas!
Merry Christmas everyone! I know it's not Sunday, but it kind of feels like one. However, it is Christmas, and we actually had a white Christmas in Canton, Georgia this year! It has been snowing since this morning, and we are supposed to get more. We had big, fluffy snow flakes too, so it was a picture perfect Christmas day. We started the day with a wonderful brunch at Jeff's parents house. We feasted on homemade waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage. We returned to One Britt early afternoon and after a luxurious Christmas nap, we started to prepare for Christmas dinner. I made a horseradish crusted beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and maple glazed roasted green beans. Jeff made some amazing homemade Parker House rolls, and we are sipping on a great bottle of Cabernet, The Crusher, complements of Richie Brown. As a holiday token of appreciation to all of my blog readers, I am posting a link to the recipes for tonight's supper! Everything came from Cook's Illustrated magazine, and they never steer you wrong. After all, they cook everything dozens of times so you only have to cook them once! Just go to the link for the tenderloin, and prepare all of the suggested side items: http://www.cooksillustrated.com/recipes/detail.asp?docid=20851
After dinner, we are planning to walk over to visit our great neighbors, the Golds! It has been a great Christmas so far, and the snow is still falling. We have to believe we are magic!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
