Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Well, JS and I haven't really been doing anything too Christmas-y. There's dinner with the family tonight -- I'm a Christmas Eve-er myself, rather that a Christmas Day-er -- then a gathering with relatives tomorrow.

We decided to give ourselves a break and have a semi-potluck tomorrow, only making roast turkey and roasting a whole beef tenderloin. We may or may not make a cauliflower gratin as well.

We have to save some energy to cook for our annual New Year's Eve gathering, after all.

(See last year's New Year's Eve menu: A Starry, Starry Night in Vancouver -- Evoking the Philippine Christmas Spirit.)

Also, we have our first-ever catering gig!

This fell quite unexpectedly on our laps. It's a holiday dinner for about 30 people, buffet-style. The above are the labels I made for the dishes we'll be making. This will be the first time we're roasting a whole beef tenderloin, so we decided to a practice run tomorrow.

So, Merry Christmas to you all! JS and I will just be working away in the kitchen all this while. =)
