Christmas Dinner with Family

This year, we were lucky enough to be celebrating Christmas in Atlanta with family. My Aunt Penny made an absolute feast and even let me help out in the kitchen, which was really fun.

The meal included lots of delicious side dishes such as cheese grits, roasted squash, glazed onions, roasted Brussels sprouts, strawberry salad, green beans, mashed potatoes, and lentils.

As if that wasn’t enough, there were roasted portobello mushrooms for the vegetarians, and roasted beef for the meat eaters. There was also Yorkshire pudding (which is really entertaining to watch baking, if you never have), and both a vegetarian and meat-based gravy.

Of course we had lots of fun chatting over dinner, especially since we were all wearing crowns from our Christmas crackers.

And if that wasn’t enough, Aunt Penny had made a delicious Yule log and had a tray of Italian cookies.

It was definitely a fun and tasty feast!
