Had a wonderful Christmas at home here in Central TX. Our beef roast was still a bit frozen Christmas morn so hubby put it in oven at 200. Then he raised oven temp to 325 for approx 2 hrs after it was defrosted completely. He put the small red potatoes in when there was approx 30 mins left. We had not had small red potatoes before that were actually red inside and they were very tasty. Hubby made au jous using 1/2 packet of dry au jus mix and a can of Campbell's French Onion soup. Had apple pie for dessert.
We are looking forward to the New Year.
Our daughter who graduated with Bachelor degrees in Art Animation & Art History last yr from Kansas City Art Institute KCAI in KC, MO got her first animation assignment in Nov this yr as a free lance animator for a company in CA, Levitate Media, working from here in Central TX. She completed first assignment. She was given her 2nd assignment. She is also starting Master's program in Art Animation at University of Texas at Dallas UTD in Jan. She has signed up for 2 classes. She will continue to work at Star Bucks Fri-Sun. She worked Christmas Eve morn/afternoon. She had Christmas Day off from StarBucks because working on Christmas Day is voluntary. She has her birthday off 12/27. At her request I'm making her a Devil's Food Chocolate Cake with raspberry cream cheese frosting. I'm going to add some raspberry to the cake mix as well.
