We spent Christmas Eve at Jo's place, were I was unleashed to perform my culinary magic. Putting everyone to work, we made candied Sweet Potatoes, Garlic flavored mashed potatoes, 4 Hams, Sweetened and Glazed baby Carrots, deviled Eggs, sweet baby gherkins (pickles), with whole berry canberry garishment. And for dessert, homemade apple pie, with natural vanilla bean ice cream, topped with whipped cream topping.
Alas there are no pictures, since we have a strictly enforced "no electronics" policy at family gatherings.
Then we pitched in to clean up, and all collapsed on couches, where we all promptly fell asleep.
