We love hosting friends for dinner during the Holidays. Shirley always goes the extra mile and knocks out great food and presentations. I am so lucky she puts up with me during these events. We hosted good friends and served four types of fresh Island Poke. For dinner, we enjoyed a Prime Rib of Beef crusted in garlic and horseradish and huge Alaskan King Crab legs that were sweet and delicious. Sides included twice baked potatoes with cheese, bacon and chives, asparagus with hollandaise sauce and a terrific caesar salad with anchovies, avocado and tomato. Our friends brought a Ice Cream Cake and chocolate stuffed creme puffs for dessert. Both were awesome. This meal made me realize; 1. how blessed we are and 2. how fat I am getting. Starting back on the diet effective January 1.
