A Merry Little Christmas Banquet

Dec 26, 2015

Christmas went by oh-so-fast in a blink of an eye. So far, this is the best Christmas dinner I had with my family because my menu turned out to be savory, yummy, and fulfilling. 

For dessert, I made Churro Cupcakes that was kind of a fail but still turned out super sweet and yummy. You can find the recipe at The Domestic Rebel's Site. Check out the image below on how my cupcakes turned out. Forgive my amateur photography. 

For the main course, I have prepared the simplest, juiciest, and tastiest roast beef I could have ever imagined cooking. Everyone approved my amateur culinary skills that turned out to be a success. I got so nervous about the main course because not only was the beef the most expensive part of my preparation, but because of the fact that it was my first time to cook and roast beef in the oven. Thank goodness it turned out juicy and tender. Whew! Get the recipe at The Food Network. If you are looking to buy a roasting rack, check out Amazon's List of Roasting Racks. You'll find a ton of racks that are priced just right. 

For the sides, I have prepared Roasted Brussel Sprouts in Balsamic Reduction, Slow Cooked Mashed (Real) Potatoes, and Roasted Baby Potatoes in Rosemary, Thyme, and Parmesan Mix. Everything turned out to be almost perfect. However, my mashed potatoes seemed kind of dry and overpowered with garlic. 

It took me 5 hours to cook everything on my own but it was all well worth it. I'm glad my family loved it! 

Check out the dish below on how it looks! It is a bit soggy now because it's already the leftover from Christmas Day. Teehee.
