Christmas Dinner

Christmas dinner was a traditional North American one (which to me is "ethnic" food). As regular readers would have seen before, chicken is somerville kitchen's turkey. And tonight was no exception; roasted stuffed chicken with all the traditional accompaniments...

 ...including, from right to left:

  • coleslaw (see Soup & Salad entry for recipe)
  • boiled purple yams and parsnips (see Parsnips entry for recipe)
  • mashed potatoes
  • two carrot-based mashes: Turnips and carrots mashed with butter and lemon juice; Carrots yam mash (see Let the Festivities Begin entry for recipe)

My childhood Christmases always included a Buche de Nöel for dessert and I have not had a decent one in over 20 years. Anita came to the rescue this year with a delicious lemon walnut Buche de Nöel covered with chocolate shavings and surrounded by marzipan mushrooms.

Merry Christmas!
