Full out Feast

Today was another super productive day here at Yesteryear Acres.  Our Navy SEAL midshipman guest, Marine Corps midshipman daughter, son, and Mr. Yesteryear Acres are busy repairing the horse fencing. It is a big project that hopefully will all get done today.  They are working as fast as they can.  Tomorrow our Navy SEAL guest is leaving us to go spend the holidays with his family. Of course I let him know that he was MORE than welcome to stay here a few more days!!!  The extra helping hand has been so great.  I caught Mr. Yesteryear Acres happily whistling early this morning.  He definitely has a little spring to his step. Crossing things off his list is without a doubt his favorite thing. Christmas came a little early this year thanks to our Navy Seal's help.  Tonight my younger daughter and I have prepared a FEAST to thank our guest for all his hard work.  We started working in the kitchen early this morning and can't wait to put the huge feast out on the table tonight.  We have homemade rolls rising in the oven.  We have a cheesecake baking - and not just any old cheesecake either. We used Mr. Yesteryear Acres' Mommy's recipe for his favorite cheesecake. The recipe calls for whisking the cream cheese mixture for at least 30 minutes.  It is a labor of love for sure.  We are making roasted potatoes and onions. We are making asparagus and hollandaise sauce. The star attraction of our feast is a big prime rib roast or as we like to call it, "The Roast Beast" We must pay homage to The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. "And he, he himself, the Grinch, carved the roast beast".  Because here at Yesteryear Acres we know without a doubt that Christmas doesn't come from the store.  No Christmas here - means so much more. Merry Christmas our Navy Seal. Your presence here fills us with the Christmas spirit and we thank you!
