Today, The Baptism of Jesus marks the end of the Christmas Season... so last night we feasted. The tradition of having an extra Christmas feast... actually started with a faux Thanksgiving, years ago. We had been visiting a friend shortly after Thanksgiving and we had decided to cook all the things that we really liked to eat, but couldn't convince the extended family to accept the "official meal." Hannah and I love to cook, and we love to try new things. In so many ways, going gluten-free was exciting because it gave us an excuse to try new things... or old things in new ways. This is always one of our least healthy meals of the year... but it always tastes good
This weekend, Hannah's sister Sarah and her boyfriend were up visiting and were able to join us.
This year's spread included (going clockwise) Ham, Cranberry Sauce, Croissant Rolls, Loaded Mashed Potatoes, Peas, Cheesy Hash Browns, Green Bean Casserole, Sausage, Walnut, Spiced Cranberry Sauce, Gravy, Sweet Potatoes, and Corn.
