Our first Christmas spread as a married couple!
And we're back!!!
Things should start getting back to normal here at Copperpots now that we're home, married and getting back into the groove of a normal routine.
The Wedding went without a hitch.. only a slight delay in our flight for our honeymoon, but Virgin Atlantic took care of us by comping our tickets in flyer points! :) So, our next trip is on them! I've got lots of foodie stories to share (including a lunch at St John!!!) from the wedding and honeymoon that will be coming soon, but for now, its Christmas!
For Christmas this year I decided to make a goose again. Cut a couple slits in the breast skin, stuffed them with whole garlic, and roast it for about 3.5 hours at 350. Turned out perfect... meat literally just fell from the bone.
With it we made mashed potatoes, whipped up in one of our AWESOME wedding presents, a kitchen aid mixer (WOOT!)
Along with some honey-blasamic glazed carrots, home made Challah bread, made from scratch giblet gravy.... and then of course the obligatory green bean casserole!
Of course everyone knows the best part of Christmas is watching the cat play in the wrapping paper. And without question, it is mandatory to give Bailey her gift of a pinch of catnip under the Christmas tree.
So I give you, this moment of zen....
