Christmas Feast

On Christmas Day we went for a hike in the rain and wind in the morning and ate a feast with friends in the evening.

For dinner I cooked up Yorkshire pudding, roasted asparagus, mashed potatoes with leeks and garlic, roasted carrots, and a HUGE sous vide elk roast with onion gravy.  Zoya and Nora set the table and made everyone place tags with little drawings.  My favorite was Gregg's which had a deer with a red nose on it and said, 'Please don't shoot me' on it.

Every year (if successful) when we butcher the elk everybody gets one or 2 BIG roast that are supposed to be for big dinner parties.  They all get named something like - 'Mike's Festivus Roast' or 'Patrick's Solstice Roast'.  The one we ate on Christmas said, 'Saltonstall Party like your Lamar Odom Roast'.

We did not do that, but we certainly had a good time.  Patrick
