For Christmas eve, my brother bought a roast goose for dinner. Comes from all the years of watching "A Christmas Carol, he said. Made him curious to find out what roast goose tasted like. I don't recall Ebenezer Scrooge bringing a goose to dinner?
He got it from Sham Tseng BBQ Shop - Monterey Park, which replaced Sam Woo. The goose was roughly the same size as a roast duck, and to be honest, tasted mostly like duck too, although a bit deeper in flavor. It was more than double the cost though!
He served it alongside roast potatoes, bok choy, cucumbers, roast pork, and tomatoes.
If I hadn't known it was goose, I would've thought it was just a very flavorful duck.
She's ready to eat!
The niece loves drumsticks. Just like Tiny Tim! Guess there was a roast goose in the story after all.
I brought over Persimmon Muffins for dessert.
And because that didn't look festive enough, made Persimmon Mini Bundt Cakes too.
On the way home, I stopped off to visit St. Albans Road in San Marino to see the lights.
If you look at the bottom of the pictures, you can see how tiny people are in comparison to the trees.
It's really hard to get a scale of how the whole street looks unless you're actually there, but definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.
