Hey Cuz, got it done first thing this morning, let me know how it traveled to cyberspace. I am not the best at exporting. Rosita (also a nickname))
"Living far away from family during holidays can sometimes be lonely, especially at Christmas. I have found my own Christmas traditions have become just as comforting as those I have of my memories with my family.
Christmas evening at our home is a casual buffet with many friends stopping by. Christmas dinner is my masterpiece of the season, however. My dining room is decorated in traditional red and one of my favorite things is my red Waechterspach dish collection which adorns my festive table. The following is my menu for our very formal (jeans only), Montana Christmas day dinner served at 4:30 annually.
Creamy garlic mash potatoes
Prime Rib of roast beef with Montana au juice
Fudge Pound cake served with raspberry/brandy and sweet whipped cream
Dressing: 1 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup red wine vinegar, 2 tablespoons sugar. Combine in jar and shake well.
Salad: 2 bunches fresh spinach, rinsed and torn into pieces. 1 cup currants. 1 cup chopped red beets. 1 lemon, thinly sliced, rind and seeds removed. 1 cup toasted, slivered almonds. 1/4 cup capers, drained.
