|Cornbread and sausage stuffing|
|Definitely the most popular dish of the night: cauliflower gratin|
|Simple roasted green beans (something healthy!)|
|That's me attempting to cut the ham the way Cook's Illustrated recommends. Worked well until I gave up.|
|Tangy and delicious buttermilk mashed potatoes|
|Yep, that's a feast (grandma's macaroni and cheese is also featured). This is also my one and only picture of the amazing mustard vermouth pan sauce I made to accompany the ham.|
|Chocolate tart (before the refrigeration)|
|Apple upside down lemon-thyme cake (similar to a tarte tatin in method, but with a cake underneath instead of crust)|
The cauliflower gratin was the hit of the night--who doesn't love creamy, cheese goodness topped with crispy breadcrumbs?? Although, if you ask my grandma, the chocolate tart was the best. A woman who normally doesn't eat much and isn't a huge fan of chocolate managed to sneak more than half of my mom's dessert while we were all talking.
Happy Holidays everyone!
