The whole family gathered at brother and sister-in-law's house for Christmas dinner. My camera batteries gave out before I could take a picture of the table and all the food, but here is the main course being cut in the kitchen. It's whole tenderloins roasted and cut into thick steaks. It's our family's favorite special Christmas holiday main course. As you can see, there are only two ingredients. The bacon is really just for basting, but is fun to pick at while waiting for everything to be assembled. Finding a good butcher, and a banker to write you a loan are two other key ingredients.
I also took a picture from their deck. It shows the salt marsh by the North River in Norwell, Massachusetts, USA. Everything was covered in snow for Thanksgiving in November, but you can see that the snow has melted this week here. What's unusual here, as well as at my house, is that under the snow the grass is still green. This is very strange for Christmas in New England. I can only guess it's because we got early snow before too much bitter cold killed the grass.
