Prime Rib Dinner
Last year, I asked myself the same question. Considering the fact that I still had a lot of leftovers from Thanksgiving, what should I make for Christmas. What I did was recreated the atmosphere into a steakhouse for Christmas. We all ate by a host of candlelights and Christmas lights. The scene was absolutely beautiful. I dressed the tables with ivory cloths with the tall candlesticks as centerpieces. The dishes were white trimmed in gold. Red napkins gold-ware and crystal chalices. If I had a fancy table, then I couldn't serve regular food.
An ordinary Thanksgiving spread couldn't capture this elegant moment. I wanted to do something like a surf and turf and that is exactly what was done. This was my menu:
First Course- Fruit crudites
Second Course- Shrimp Caesar Salad
Third Course (dinner)- Black Peppered Crusted Prime Rib Roast served with Marsela wine sauce with mushrooms. Scalloped potatoes garnished with bacon, sour cream, and chives. Sweet potato casserole and butter-garlic steamed broccoli.
Instead of serving dinner rolls or corn muffins for Thanksgiving at Christmas, I replaced them with parmesan garlic bread sticks.
A Cabernet or any red wine is perfect for beef. You can replace the prime rib with large lobster tails and serve a chardonnay or any white wine. Spritzers are universal that can go with anything. I'll even give you a recipe for one.
Get a bottle of champaign sweet not dry.
Splash of Amaretto
To change the color to say red, add a drop of food coloring or any flavorful fruity liquor or juice.
For dessert serve a Red Velvet cake or strawberry cheese cake and your Christmas dinner is complete.
