This year I rather spur of the moment challenged myself to make a traditional English Christmas dinner for Chris and I before he left for Michigan. I turned to my experts from London, my dear friends Ly and Jackie. Ly posted about her amazing lamb dinner (I've experienced several times, yum!) on her blog, Mondernista, and I thought I'd follow her how-to and make it for our first Christmas dinner.
Despite the fact that (I think) I know my way around a kitchen, the thought of making this big dinner made me rather nervous! My nerves got worse when I got to the store and realized they only had one lamb and it was quite pricey to spend on 6 pounds of meat for just the 2 of us. I panicked for a moment then called my 911 roast team to figure out an alternative. I decided to do a beef roast which turned out fantastic! Chris devoured the roast and I finished off most of the yorkshire pudding, so delicious! For dessert, Chris made this amazing Guinness chocolate pudding. It was a perfect Christmas dinner :) Of course, I can't wait to have Christmas dinner with my family. We're Italian so we always serve lots of pasta! Bon Appétit!
Watch the yorkshire puddings rise!
According to Ly's instructions, make sure you have a handsome Englishman, or American to help take the roast out of the oven ;)
