We had a fantastic Christmas. Here in Alaska, we don't know anyone and have no family around, so there were no obligations (awesome). I made sure the house was clean and organized and ready for just kicking back. Dinner was fabulous and relatively simple.
Au Gratin Potatoes
It was the first time I've made prime rib and it came out great.
I could have done without the yorkshire puddings, though maybe I did something wrong.
I am so thankful for our comfy home and my loving family. On a really optimistic note, we are thru the winter solstice, so our days start getting longer now. No more 3hr 45min of daylight that ends at 2:30, though the sunsets in the middle of the day are pretty.
I hear it will be getting colder through January and February. That will be interesting since our temps have been between -25 and -42 this whole month with very few warmer days. Yikes!
