Christmas Dinner

Much like last year we served the favorites of the kids. A nice New York Strip roast about 12 pounds, Gene's potatoes and Roasted Parmesan Onions, green beans with toasted almonds. Much to our surprise, the boys and Nick's friend Amanda got a reprieve from work and were able to join us for most of the evening. It was quiet and wonderful.  All the recipes have been previously posted.

Ben and Mackenzie were out pretty early so they opened their stuff together but poor Nick had to be cajoled into opening his things by himself. The kids gave and got some great gifts this year. The big hit was a Nexus 7 tablet and Brenda's Kindle Fire HD. So cool and accessible are these devices. I got a bag I pinned on Pinterest.

A great time was had by all.

A perfectly cooked roast. Removed and tented at 130 degress, it was delicious.

The Parmesan Onions were sublime.
