Christmas Day - Thursday 12/25/2008
Another overexposed photo of a Christmas tree! I'll bet the Internet is just buzzing with these right now.
Next year, maybe I'll think to set up a tripod rather than settle for another shot like this. The cousins arrived from Orange and San Diego counties bearing gifts.
The roast beef was tender and delicious, the salmon--which I poached in the microwave--surprised and impressed the diners, and these simple cheese crisps--which were requested--were a hit again at least amongst the women-folk.
It was a good day. They arrived around 11 am and stayed until almost 6pm. It rained a little and gusted a lot, which kept us from our traditional walk between dinner and dessert, but it was a very nice day inside.
Hmm. There's an awful lot about food here around the build-up to and celebration of this holiday. I love cooking for people.
