Delicious deer steak with rosemary rolled in bacon, green beans in bacon and mashed potatoes with spring onions. A true Christmas dinner.
Hail and brain
This morning, around noon (it seems these thing always happens when I have to collect the kids at school) the air blacked. There was a storm and it began to hail real hard. So it seems to be the best to take the car to ride my youngest home form school (and stay a little dry) number 2 still remains in bed ill. When I just sat in my car I saw a flash immediately followed with a bang and I almost stood up right in my car. That wasn't far away. I drove to school and after a few minutes the hail became less and the sky turned blue.
It isn't that we have to walk far to get to school, but I just hate lightning. So I was glad I drove and not took my bicycle. Because I didn't want a brain freeze (as told by my oldest when the wind bangst through your forehead and everything gets colder and colder).
So I fired up the heat in the house, took a cup of tea and relaxed afterwards. Much better!
I've already blogged quite a bit recipe for my Christmas dinner. Started with a delicious amuse-bouche of duck breast filet and cranberry followed by a tower of smoked chicken and avocado (really try that one!) and a creamy broccoli cappuccino. And last night I blogged a pomegranate spoom to neutralize it. Today we follow up with a main dish: delicious deer beef on a rosemary stick, green beans with herb butter and bacon and mashed potatoes.
Delicious, elegant and the dinner can be prepared in advance without having to much stress. And off course after the Christmas dinner recipes are done, you'll get a wrap up with a grocery list and time table, but lets start with this recipe.
- you want to bake the deer beef even, take it out of the refrigerator 15 minutes before baking.
- you cook the green beans in the oven, the stay crispy and not to soft. So don't cook them to long.
- you want a smooth mashed potato, use warm milk. That way it stays creamy.
It's a good taste!
