One of the many reasons I love the wintertime holiday season is the family reunion. I have a rather large, tight-knit family on mom's side, and we get together several times a year for holiday potluck dinners (Easter, Independence Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas).
Sunday was our Christmas get-together, and I brought my standard appetizer: bacon-wrapped Little Smokies, topped with a bit of crushed pineapple and caramelized brown sugar.
My aunt brought a very tasty new mashed potato dish with a wine sauce, and my sister made a really simple Boston cream cake that was spectacularly decadent. And oh yeah, the main course was friggin' prime rib. (We splurge a bit on Christmas.)
I was miserably uncomfortable for the rest of the day, but I maintain that it was totally worth it.
