Congratulations to your son-in-law on his naturalization - I've always heard that it's a very moving ceremony. *If* he lives in Georgia, he should go to a driver's license office with his naturalization certificate and have his status changed in the DMVS computer system.

We start serving breakfast around 12 today. Country ham, homemade sausage, biscuits, gravy and eggs. Then around 5 we start serving dinner for the kids and grandkids that includes two pork butts that have been on the Egg since 3 PM yesterday.

 

All we do is cook on Christmas Day.

Beef brisket - smoked to perfection with home made bbq sauce

country ham - soaked in Dr Pepper for three days then slow baked

Then all of the families that join us bring something

 

Apple salad

4th Generation North Georgian. But my mama was a Yankee from upstate New York. She didn't cook all that much.

 

We used to do the turkeys for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, but you need 12 diners or so for a big Standing Rib, and we learned to appreciate good Yorkshire Pudding in England so we've been doing the roast for Christmas dinner the past 10 years or so.

Christmas Eve - filet mignon, scalloped potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise sauce with dessert, dessert, dessert, and dessert.

 

Christmas Day - standing rib roast with a pepper / garlic crust, roasted red potatoes stuffed with a cream cheese / chive filling, broccoli salad, and tomato pie (Paula Deen recipe) and dessert, dessert, dessert and hot apple cider.

 

I am done - no more cooking until.....tomorrow. :) We had a great Christmas with family and friends and I hope everyone else did also. I will admit that I am tired of the kitchen about right now. Merry Christmas everyone!
