Christmas Day 2010

Our tree!

I got to spend Christmas Day lounging about the house with the family. It started with coffee and this monkey bread:

Then, presents (including a new love seat and chair for the parents’ living room), including modeling of some of said presents:

We had more coffee and monkey bread, followed by a viewing of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World while we enjoyed the new furniture.

We had no where to be, so we had a late breakfast and then just puttered about, enjoying our new toys and reading our new books. Eventually, we were hungry again and so we went back into the kitchen:

set the table:

and threw this lovely little dinner together:

Beef tenderloin, roasted with bacon, mashed potatoes, saucy mushrooms, and asparagus with Bearnaise sauce.

It was my first time making Bearnaise, and I was somewhat bolstered by the fact that one of the letters I read in As Always, Julia concerned this very sauce. I took it to be a sign that mine would turn out deliciously and it did!
