Nigel Slater has some suggestions for Christmas dinner in the UK Guardian.
Pat and I do a round of family things on Christmas Day (my parents, my dad’s extended family, and then Pat’s parents) but Christmas Eve is the 2 of us and Syd (our cat). I have the day off and am thinking of doing braised short ribs from Sunday Suppers. The apples in this article sound appealing for dessert. I’ll have to see what looks good at the market.
