Geoffrey likes to say that eating well is the best revenge... if true, then we certainly took our revenge on everyone today. I have finally figured out the Christmas roll recipe that works best for me, with an enriched no-knead dough, heavily loaded with butter, cinnamon and nuts. We got through the long mid-day stretch with a bowl of cioppino from last night, with a glass of champagne. And for dinner, the rib roast, while slightly more done than we prefer, was extremely flavorful. The yorkshire pudding, made in the roasting pan, is the best I've ever made.
