I did the last (hopefully last) holiday grocery shopping yesterday early in the morning. This is a college town and a lot of people have left after the end of the semester, so the store was nearly deserted. For tomorrow I'm going to make our now-traditional paprika roast leg of lamb, which is actually pretty easy. It gets marinaded today, sits in the fridge over night and then stuck in the oven tomorrow. There's a mint sauce that goes with it, and gravy, and I make thyme potatoes in the crock pot, collard greens with bacon, garlic, and shallots, popovers, stuffed mushrooms, and this year I'm adding pickled cucumber. My husband is making two pies today, pumpkin and chocolate, and our friends are bringing a Yule Log cake from L'Madeliene in Houston.

We have a friend coming in to stay with us today, and we'll go out for the traditional Xmas sushi tonight. Then tomorrow three more friends will come over for dinner and second dinner. Then I get to start reading Yuletide stories.

Your Christmas menu sounds amazing. Would you be willing to share that recipe for the roast lamb?

Hope you had a very merry Christmas, and wishing you a happy New Year.
