On the Fifth Day of Christmas

Five people for dinner
French Onion Soup
Seven Layer Salad
Prime Rib
Yorkshire Pudding
Braised Brussel Sprouts
Twice Baked Potatoes
Gingerbread Cake

I don't have a picture for this one but our Christmas Eve dinner was fantastic. We always have our big dinner on Christmas Eve and it usually is quite a production, this year was n0 exception. The prime rib had aged in our refrigerator for 3 days and then was cooked for 5 hours (we didn't eat until 8:30). the soup was the best I have ever had. The gingerbread cake used 3 kinds of ginger (powdered, fresh and ginger ale). Sometimes we have more people but this time it was just part of the family and it was delightful.
