Home for the Holidays Daily Update: December 25

We never did get around to buying a Christmas tree, so we passed gifts from under the palm tree that we put lights in last night. Mom normally keeps it front of the windows, but strung with lights, it looked very "Christmas Tropicale". It was surprisingly charming. Maybe we will get a holiday palm again next year.

Christmas Dinner Menu:

Grilled Marinated Shrimp with Cocktail Sauce, a la 1964
Brown Sugar Glazed Ham
Roasted Winter Root Vegetables
Smashed Red Potatoes with Horseradish and Chives
Challah, served with butter (rendering all the work unkosher)
Brandied Cranberry Sauce
Winter Citrus Salad
Flaming Christmas Pudding

If I had received this menu in advance, I would have been at YOUR mom's Christmas dinner. Which is probably why I didn't receive the menu in advance, eh?
