Merry Christmas! πŸŽ„

Hope you're all having a good time today! Not sure how many of you cook the meals during this time of year but here, it's usually me. I kind of sort of messed up my leg of lamb in the beginning because I totally ran out of time to completely sous vide it all the way through after 3.5 hours since I started from frozen (supposed to be 132 F in the center but got 27 πŸ˜‚). So I basically just defrosted it for 3 and a half hours and finished it in the oven for another hour.

On the better end of the cooking spectrum, I made a banana walnut bread (with a bit of *ahem* kick) which everyone definitely liked. Like instead of "the lamb was pretty good" when I was serving it, I got "I need more of this banana bread in my life!" (I'm pretty sure it's the extra rum in there giving it that extra appeal).

I get to relax more on New Years Eve at least since we're doing hot pot next and it's been forever since I've done one.

Happy holidays everyone!

Happy holidays to you as well. I'm glad things are going great for you.
I did all the cooking while my family went to church. I was sick though, so I stayed back at home, but I just love cooking so much, so I had to push all limit and had two different pots of rice done.
It was hectic for me, but it was also fun.

Happy holidays to you too!
Team effort with family for cooking as we did...
Daht seen, lao style of griddle bbq lol
Banana walnut rum bread actually sounds pretty good. Definitely gotta make that next year or before the year ends.
Lamb leg didn't sound that bad, but maybe next year it'll go better? Lol
Anyway, glad to know all is well and take care!!

Merry Christmas! We always order Chinese food for Christmas (my wife used to work for a Jewish doctor and he turned us on to the tradition).

Any chance you'd be willing to share the banana bread recipe?

Happy holidays to you too! Hot pot sounds so good! No cooking for us this year because we were almost twenty guests so catering saved us. New year eve will be at the movie theater watching avatar and munching pop corn I assume XD with a couple of our friends, that's it (we are not into celebrating new years, kind of meaningless for us except when we have to focus to remember what date to write on a check XD)

Nonetheless I wish you good moments with your family and friends and plenty of great things for the following year.
