Dining date: 12/25/13
Like Thanksgiving, Christmas has been one of the largest feasts of the year every single year. For some time now, my family has done Christmas just like Thanksgiving – lunch at my mom’s side and dinner at my dad’s. Double the gluttony.
Lunch, at my aunt’s is a potluck, with a relatively large group of family and friends.
sweet stop ‘dream cake’
While lunch is a potluck, dinner at my grandmother’s is almost 100% her doing. This year, I brought something (other than alcohol) to the table – sous vide chashu pork belly.
chinese sticky rice
braised pork belly
roasted new york strip
This year’s dinner was totally an overload on meat…clearly a reflection of the carnivorous nature of my dad’s side of the family. Wouldn’t have it any other way. With a close to this year’s holiday season, I hope everyone had a happy holiday and I look forward to the next!
