Christmas at Casa de Rey

Today i spent putting up the Christmas lights. I am an expert in exterior illumination. I will put up the tree for Ruth and she will decorate it. You see, i am assigned the outside and she handles the inside. It is a perfect day. 75 degrees, Christmas lights going up, a pork roast simmering on the stove and a cold beer in my hand. It don't get much better than this.

Tonight i am making my signature meal. A pork roast browned and pressure cooked with red new potatoes and carrots. The roast is cut and stuffed with a blend of onions, garlic, bell pepper, green chilli's, celery and Heinz 57. Rice Dressing with pork sausage and potato salad. This is comfort food. It is a coon ass dish with a Tex-Mex flair. Life is good.

When Ruth does her tree it looks like it belongs in a department store. When she has it complete i will post a picture. It is bad ass with a little train going around underneath it.

I hope you all enjoy a very Merry Christmas.
