Happy New Year!!! I hope that everyone enjoyed a wonderful holiday season packed full of family, fun and good eats! I know I sure did! Our Christmas Day meal was enjoyed at my parents place. Mom always puts on a great feast!
Turkey and ham, of course! Mom gave me the ham bone and I made a rich, delicious split pea soup with it last week. Mmmm...I should really post the recipe soon!!
For the past 5 years I have hosted the New Year's Day dinner festivities for my family. Because I had to work a few days over the holidays, I wanted a stress free meal; something that didn't require a load of time, but still tasted great. After flipping through many a recipe book I decided to make a pot roast form The Looneyspoons Collection, page 203 to be exact! Here are the results;
Aside from all the great eats that happened over the course of the holiday's, I was fortunate enough to spend lots of quality time with family, long time friends and getting to know some new, exciting friends. Life is GOOD! :)
Tell me a highlight from your holiday season!! Also, now that I am the proud owner of an iphone 5 (!!!), I've hopped on the Instagram bandwagon. You can follow me at kristam19....
Bye for now!!
