Another Christmas has come and gone. Our family started the morning out with Hawaiian sweet bread French toast and a viewing of the animated classic "A King is Born". Jesus was born this day, and we celebrate it, Amen. Our children received a wide variety of gifts, as did we, and love to you all.
The Christmas dinner consisted of my first crown roast, which I tell you the photo here does not do justice. I always thought a crown roast was a strip of ribs tied in a circle, but no, it's more a strip of pork chops tied in a circle. Oh delicious pork! Stuffing! It took about oh, just under 2-1/2 hours to cook. It was a challenge to carve, but carve it did at the table, just like the Grinch carving the Roast Beast. The meat was juicy and tender, and the stuffing that cooked inside the roast, well, it was worth fighting over. I cooked up some more stuffing to put around the outside, but forget that! The inside stuffing, oh that was good. I cooked the entire roast on top of some sliced acorn squash, which served to keep the roast up off the bottom of the roasting pan. That was some of the best squash I've had, seeing how it roasted in pork fat for a couple hours. Mmm. It would have been great to give some to a vegetarian, "Here try this, it's squash!" I'd convert 'em over to the meat lifestyle in no time. It was a fine Christmas, a joyous celebration it was.
