Day after daughter L came home we headed up to Temecula. Her friend J joined up. I made Salmon en Croute up - a dish I just saw being made on that morning by Laura Calder on French Food at Home. It was good.
There is no straying too far from my children's favorite dishes during the holidays. Always the same thing. For Christmas Eve we had their favorite Oven Roasted Crabs but with RICE. Apparently, none of us had rice all week and the Chinese in us were screaming for rice.
|Pumpkin Pies - pastry was hard to shape|
|Pumpkin and Apple pies - ugly but still very delicious|
On Boxing Day, my son made some fabulous Crab Taco with a delicious hot sauce. Sriracha sauce does it own magic. His sauce taste like the sauce in spicy tuna roll !
Husband came come 12/27 and family was complete again. Son was off to Taco Tuesday with his friends so the rest of us headed out to the local Thai place for dinner.
Yesterday 12/28/11 I pull out all the stops!!! I use a Christmas Gift to myself and a Birthday gift from my husband for maybe 5 years ago, which I not not used till now. Check on it in my next post.
