Smile Christmas Eve Dinner 2019

Most of you who’ve been around a few years, know this is the time of year that I go full Griswold. Here’s a pic of my house from a few years ago.

It gets a little bigger every year. This year I rented a boom to put lights up in our 50' tall Italian Cypress you can see to the left of our garage. (Sorry no photo of it this year)


Anyway, as is our family’s tradition, we host everyone on Christmas Eve for dinner and presents. In attendance were my two brothers that live here in California. They came down from the L.A. area along with my niece, my nephew and his fiancé. (in addition to my wife and I) We like to vary the meal menu each year. One year we will cook Tamales, (A So. Cal. Christmas staple) the next we’ll do Ham, then Turkey, then a nice Ribeye Roast. We hadn’t had Ham since 2016 so we settled on that.

We were quite busy making all the dinner and fixing’s, so I didn’t have a lot of time to take a whole lot of photos but here are the few that I did get. Here’s the ham on the kamado for the first few hours at 275.


Here’s a pic of the stove with the beans, carrots, potatoes and gravy on top. (Green Bean Casserole and biscuits in the oven)


Here’s the ham after the 2 hours in foil with the pineapple and cherries added for another 10 minutes at 425.


Here’s the ham on the table waiting for the rest of the fixings to join it. (It’s funny but I didn’t realize that this is almost the exact same photo Moose used, from 2016, for this month’s Throwdown)


Here’s everyone waiting to dig in.


Here the one photo I got of the food and table. (As you can see we broke out our finest plastic cups for this dinner 😊)


Here’s what everyone looked like when I asked if they could wait for me to take more / better photos of the food.


Everything was delicious and we had a great time that evening.

Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for looking.

As long as you keep cooking the dishes that you cook, those people are going to keep showing up (if that is your goal, then forget that statement). Seriously, you always have some good eats and the company left satisfied, I'm sure. Great decorations and gathering.

Thanks everyone. I was able to get a couple of new photos of the display yesterday showing the 50' Italian Cypress with lights.





And they are synchronized to skits / music.
