What I Ate: December 25, 2009 (Christmas Dinner)

Dinner: Tina and I prepared a Christmas feast for… just the two of us. I decided to do a prime rib for Christmas dinner this year because I kept answering questions sent to me by other people trying to prepare a prime rib. It seemed like a good idea, but really for two people, you just end up with a lot of leftovers. I picked up a one rib roast (which I would normally call a steak, but humor me) last night and started preparing dinner after we went to see Sherlock Holmes at 4:30pm. I grilled the roast over high heat to get a nice char on the outside and then finished it off over low indirect heat.

Here's my plate - note the perfect medium-rare from edge to edge on the prime rib. :)

I had a couple glasses of EOS Cabernet Sauvignon 2002 with the meal.

We stuffed ourselves… and have a meal or two worth of leftovers.

Lunch: We cooked some Nong Shim Seafood Ramyun with Napa cabbage and grilled chuck steak for lunch.
