If you celebrated Christmas I hope it was everything you wanted it to be. We had a lovely day with our family. We enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by yours truly with lots of help by hubby Tom. Everyone pitched in to help with clean up – many hands make light work. I love all of those old sayings – they are things that my mom and Grandmother would always say and they have stuck with me!
I decided to try The Field Roast – Celebration roast for Christmas dinner. It comes frozen so it needed thawed out the day before.The directions say to baste the roast with broth or oil and season with herbs before roasting it so I gave it a light spray of olive oil and sprinkled it with a little herbs de provence. It’s already cooked so it just needs a little heating up.Verdict – loved it! It was actually delicious and something I will purchase again. Hubby Tom also enjoyed it. If I would have had more time I think a mushroom gravy or a cranberry chutney would have been a nice addition. Look for it in the freezer section of Whole Foods or your health food store.
To work off some of those holiday calories we drove to the foothills and went for a wonderful 3 mile nature walk. Many other folks had the same idea as us and it was fun to see and greet people on the trail on Christmas. About half a mile or so down the trail we were pleasantly surprised by this decorated tree! Talk about an unexpected delight – how cute is this? We had to wonder who would take the time to decorate a tree out on a hiking trail?
