Merry Christmas to All My Friends and Beloved Family far Away
First and most important, the fundamental reason for rejoicing at this time!
Then on to some details of the past 15 hours or so:
Yesterday we attended our version of Midnight Mass........at 7pm.
Then took a picture of our neighbor's farolitos (New Mexican Christmas lights) and back home to our little "reveillon": foie gras, bubbly, escargots en brioche, tiny crab cakes. Here is Diablo enjoying his meager, according to him, tidbit of foie gras.
We exchanged 1 gift each, the rest for today.
This morning I took our aged rib roast out of the fridge about 2 hours before browning it on all sides until just perfectly colored with tones of caramel, gold, sienna, umber.....yes, just like the titles on my Golden acrylic jars.
Salt (the large crystals), pepper and in the oven for....hours....Compare with the picture posted earlier.
More presents to wrap....table to dress...
