Christmas Dinner 2011

I wanted to plan a Christmas dinner where everything was fresh, no frozen or canned food.  Oh, I did have one thing that was canned and that was the cranberry sauce.  I could have made my own from fresh cranberries but I just didn’t.  I have to have my cranberry sauce one way or the other.  I can’t have dinner without it.  This time of year I seem to be starving for fresh vegetables and fruits.  It is so hard to find anything fresh this time of year so this is the menu that I came up with.

We had a wonderful spiral ham.  Along with the ham we had Pototoes Au Gratin.  This recipe was sooo good.  I may even remake this recipe and put some leftover ham in it.  This dish had NO leftovers!!

The next thing I made was Creamed Spinach.  I used the fresh baby spinach that can be bought in bags and are already washed.  It was a good quick side dish.

Then I made Whiskey Glazed Carrots.  Oh me, oh my was it good.  I am going to have to make this again sometime.  We also had some of Pioneer Woman’s Parker House Rolls.  We ate those up so fast that I couldn’t get a picture of it.
