Christmas Eve Dinner

We hosted some friends for dinner on Christmas Eve. Paula and her three kids, Eliisa, Oliver and Niklas; Nikki and her son, Alec; and Grace and her daughter, Ava.

Like Thanksgiving, we had lots of food. Ron tried cooking a rib roast for the first time; it barely fit into our small oven. Even though Ron used a digital oven thermometer, the meat came out a little more done than the Gee family likes; next time, he’ll take the roast out at 130 degrees for medium rare. Iris made homemade mashed potatoes, Nikki made a refreshing salad, Paula brought a fruit salad, and Grace brought a pecan pie.
