Old school xmas dinner here at moms... Turkey, stuffing, squash, peas, mashed potatoes, gravy, and roasted turnips with some kind of salad. The meal will be followed by copius amounts of Stella, chocholate, homemade butter tarts, nuts, a couple butts and maybe a celebrity appearance from JAR.

word! :)

I have passed the point of no return. After consuming a million calories in turkey, mashed potato, veggies, cheese, meats, candy, bread, etc etc, I decided I might as well continue to eat everything in sight.....

I can imagine the gym fest that will ensue over the next few days......

My thoughts exactly. Was over at my sister's place in C'wood for brunch, which consisted of bacon/sausage/eggs/toast/hash browns/coffee/juice/fruit tray, then back my parent's place for the classic turkey/stuffing/vegetables/mashed etc. Then I took a 3 hour nap, and am rested for more turkey and stuffing.

lol. yes, but I think all that eating will be bringing on more then ONE extra layer;)

I actually don't feel like as much of a lard ass as I thought I would today. But I did go for a retardedly long work out *yawn*

Our dinner (my fiancee and I) was tonight, the other nights were with our families.

So, tonight's menu included:

roast rosemary duck (it melts in your mouth)
duck gravy
stuffing (OMG, he makes an AMAZING stuffing)
lemon zest asparagus
garlic oregano roast new potatoes
Romanian home-made sausage
Of course, champagne

We don't do turkey/ham since I can't stand the taste of the bird and I loathe ham.

Oh yeah, the mandatory picture:

Screw turkey, I made my first prime rib roast. It was more rare that I like, but I was happy it wasn't burned or dry. Next time I'm making an accompanying mushroom sauce.
