Christmas Dinner .... in January!

Since we weren't home for Christmas last year, we weren't able to have our traditional holiday dinner of roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.  So we had it tonight instead!  The pudding can be tricky, but it came out beautifully!  Since Stan is having some problems with his leg, Kevin made the gravy for it and it was soooo good!  This is a very traditional English meal.  I use my grandmother's recipe, so it feels as if she is with us.  Nice, on so many levels.

 The roast came out smelling like you wanted to bury your face in it.

 Yorkshire pudding and gravy.  If you've never had it you should try it.  Goes with beef so well!

 Stan was happy.  After having been in pain for the last few days I was glad he got a respite to enjoy dinner.

 This is one of AJ's favorite meals.  He loves the pudding.  I also make Ina Garten's mustard horseradish sauce (sitting in the crystal bowl) for the meat which is also one of his faves.

Kevin made the best gravy!  I think Stan might have competition in that area.
