Christmas Dinner at My House

Yesterday I posted that I was going to make these rolls for dinner and I did.

I made them in my handy dandy bread machine, and it worked really well. The machine did the kneading for me and all I had to do was to add the ingredients in  the correct order, in a timely fashion. I used the dough cycle, and made the liquid mixture and started the machine. I let that mix well and then started adding in the flour, a cup or so at intervals. While it mixed away, I made side dishes so used my time efficiently.

I made some in the pan, as suggested on the recipe:

Homemade rolls, ready for the oven
I saved this pan for later in the week. The ones I served for dinner last night, I made in my muffin pan. They were so tasty I had a hard time getting a picture of them, but I just did manage, right before they disappeared!

Yummy homemade rolls -- I snapped this picture just before they disappeared!
Making a standing rib roast is a little bit of spluge but I got one on sale locally. It was everything you would hope a roast would be:

Whenever I make a roast, I always use this recipe from Paula Deen on the Food Network:

Try some of these for New Years weekend! You can NOT go wrong! Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year!!
Merry Christmas, from my house to yours!
I am Christmas Crazy and love decorating my Christmas Tree!
