For the past few years my family has planned on Christmas Eve for our family Christmas gathering. It's the only way to get the large group together with all of the children growing up. So, for Christmas day, my husband and I invite all of our friends
(who are also without family) over for Christmas dinner. (Endearing called my Christmas "strays"). I let them know in advance that we will not be eating turkey. I am surprised at the many "thank you"s I have gotten with that statement. Last year we prepared
the prime rib from the recipe Prime Rib with Aus Jus and Yorkshire Pudding. We did not make the Yorkshire Pudding; we live in the South and that is not a dish we are accustomed to making or eating. However, the Prime Rib was awesome. Our friends have requested
it again this year. So we now have a new Christmas tradition that we share with our friends. Don't worry, we will still have our turkey on Christmas Eve as that is a tradition that we don't want to let go of.
