She used to make turkey, then switched to her father’s British roots and did prime rib with roasted potatoes and Yorkshire pudding.
Then I thought up and made all the sides each year, my siblings were out at the latest movie matinee. We probably had a pinot noir at dinner and got to spend some time talking.
Of course the desserts were fantastic, none were made by me. Mom and sisters had me on that one, I was only a cook.
Tomorrow I’m making a panettone trifle with vanilla cream, raspberries and blackberries. It is a gift.
My husband and I do not exchange gifts for birthdays and holidays. His birthday is next week and we did get new cell phones, after many years. I think this was our Christmas and birthday gift and all we’re missing is family. Happy holidays! Dee
