It was just the two of us here yesterday, so there were two big goals: to have a festive meal, and to also keep it healthy. Three years ago, Om had a heart attack. I'm not sure I've mentioned that before. He's completely healthy now, and still keeps very careful track of what he eats. If we had eaten out, he would have needed to eat small portions of everything, and then eat really uninteresting things for several days to average out the effects of the extra fat and salt.
But, if I cook, then we can enjoy good things, fixed in a healthy way.
The menu was: Cornish Game Hens, Apricot-Rice Stuffing, Holiday Jello, Butternut Squash, Asparagus, and Apple-Cranberry Pie.

It was perfect for the two of us, and we had leftovers today. There's more pie left for a couple of days yet, too! Hope you had a wonderful feast of your own!
