Christmas Dinner

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope your Christmas is going well so far, especially the food. Well, today’s Christmas dinner menu is basically a variation of the surf-n-turf: seared steak (done the most austere way: just salt and pepper; done by my father), steamed asparagus, sauteed mushrooms (vegetables done by my mom), and my homemade raisin coconut walnut bread and coconut shrimp.

If you’re wondering about my younger brother; he’s just here for the food. In ways it’s a good thing because my house doesn’t have a huge kitchen and it’s already bad enough that there’s three people making their own things and we just have one stove. So yeah, it’s good that he doesn’t cook.

I don’t have pictures of the main courses, just the stuff I made since: 1) the photos of the entrées and the side dishes didn’t come out too well and 2) once the food came out that my parents made, were consumed almost immediately. Sorry.

Yes, my family and I stuffed our faces with lots of food. Not to mention, we still have the cheesecake I made yesterday.

So, my question to you readers, what did you eat for Christmas? Did you make anything special or partake in the process of creating the meal?

‘Til then, Merry Christmas! As for tomorrow, may you have many happy returns for any gifts that you don’t like and/or happy shopping!
