Hope all my Texas friends are well and warm! Well, I’m pretty sure of the warm, it was 70 degrees or so today. Remember that Christmas Eve snow of 2004? Amaze snow balls! I’m indulging on a bit of Angel’s Envy Bourbon. and if you’re a bourbon fan you’ll like it too, a Christmas present if you must know. Super smooth going down.
Watching a 1944 Christmas movie, which you do while entertaining your mother-in-law flown in from the hinterlands of Texas, even if you have already seen it umpteem times.
Since I’ve seen nothing from y’all this holiday season, I thought I’d ask: What did you eat and drink and what are you planning for New Year’s Eve?
I made a beef tenderloin for the first time on Christmas Day, because…easy. With horsey sauce of course. Green beans and roasted garlic mashers. MIL had lunch here and then had THE EXACT SAME MEAL at her daughters house for dinner. I’m pretty sure mine was better. Why did we do that? Well families are complicated.
More important, what are you eating for NYE? My usual is the Dagwood sandwich with bolillos and tons of toppings. I’ve been doing that since the turn of the century but that tradition has grown old. What hasn’t grown old to most of my family is me being chief cook and bottle washer, even now that my kids have kids.
I’m super tired and need a NYE idea for 6-8 that involves little work and is not sandwiches. Also that includes kids and two large dogs that will come to visit. Oh, and also, without tannerite, a new explosive that has taken over East Texas, apperantly. Lawd help us.
Many blessings to you all! Especially if you a can direct me to a fun and easy NYE meal.
Somebody post something.
Here’s my tenderloin.
