Yesterday was Greg’s side of the family Christmas gathering hosted by his brother and sister-in-law. Everyone brings food and then we do the Chinese gift exchange, which is always a lot of fun. This year the WHOLE family was there. I believe Greg counted 33. We are all blessed that both of his parents are still living, his dad just turned 90 this year!! They have 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren!!
Greg made a dish consisting of duck that was killed the day before on his duck hunt along with some sausage, jalapenos and onion. The duck was being shy, it was hidden under all of the other stuff!
I tried a new recipe that Greg found on the internet. Note to self – NEVER try out a dish the first time on someone before you try it on yourself! My first attempt was a mess. These are called Meat Sticky Buns. They tasted really good, but the next time I make them, IF there is a next time, I will do something different.
As usual, we all left with full bellies like Santa on Christmas Eve and it was all so good.
