December catch-up


Above is a veggie-potato soup I put together for a quick dinner.  Had lots of leftovers from a veggie tray.  It’s a great way to use up those last handfuls of broccoli, cauliflower and carrots.  I sauteed them with onions and a little garlic, added chicken broth and some red pepper flakes, added some raw potato, cooked,  pureed and it was yummy. 

This prime rib roast was served for one of the family gatherings.  It’s so simple and delicious.  Before putting the 15lb roast in the oven – rub with a salt, pepper, powdered onion and garlic and chopped fresh rosemary.  Score the fat side (with the rub) and roast in the over at 350 for about 75 minutes.  The fat renders on the top and leaves delicious little bacon-bits on the top.

Teiko visiting at Grandma’s house.  He’s watching and waiting for the pizza flavored doggy treats we had picked up at Bad Dog Frida‘s on Atwood Avenue – great pet store with awesome toys and treats for dogs and humans! 
Finally have the fireplace area nice and cozy with the new leather chairs, bookshelves, a Persian rug picked up at the Maple Bluff Antique Mall for a song, a mantle of sorts to camouflage the fake stone wall and delivered firewood that is actually dry and burns great – from Green Thumb Farms in Sauk City. 
That’s the whirlwind that was my December. How was yours?
