Christmas Dinner (belatedly)
Our menu was:
Roasted Carrots, Turnips and Fennel (with Bonus Parsnips)
It sounds fancy. It tastes fancy. But it was actually very simple to make. The potatoes and roast veggies tend to themselves in the oven while you make the duck breasts so you really don't have to
split your focus.
I added an extra potato to the scalloped potatoes and therefore it needed to cook longer.
I didn't check the carrot and turnip recipe before going to the store and remember it as carrots and parsnips instead. So I had to go back out for turnips and fennel and then just added the parsnips anyway. It was still delicious.
What did you serve on Christmas (or eat, if you're not the chef)? Also, do you have a traditional menu that you have every year or do you change things up?
