CHRISTMAS DINNER . . ONE DAY LATE

SWMBO fixed a big brunch at about midday on Christmas.  Consequently when it came time to start dinner we both admitted we had no appetites.  So we put it off a day and had some Sloppy Joe sandwiches that night.

But yesterday we watched our intake through the day and we were ready.  SWMBO's creation was a stuffed pork loin roast.


It came out of the oven looking beautiful and it was even better once it was sliced.


I can attest to the fact that it was delicious, especially when accompanied by some roasted petite Brussels sprouts, pureed sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes and gravy (gravy not shown, sorry), salad and a nice glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.


Hmmm, only 363 days until Christmas again!

  1. Your blog is one of the few places I can go to enjoy my beloved Brussels sprouts. Yum! That pork looks pretty tasty too.

  2. You didn't ask but . . . she tosses them in a little olive oil, salt and Mrs. Dash, spreads them on a pan and roasts them in the oven. And she has recently found the petites, which I like better.

  3. Lana has borrowed Judy's idea and does sprouts in a similar fashion.

  4. It all looks delish! Even the Brussels sprouts. (I like looking at them, just not eating them.) ;)

  5. I think you'd like these, Scott. They're slightly spicy and crisp, not soggy.

  8. I can see this is rolled around a snowman's nose, but what's in the stuffing?

  9. Just some leftover Thanksgiving stuffing: sausage, bread, sage, whatever.
