Three on Thursday | Holiday Food and Drink.

Carole is taking a well-deserved break from her blog today, so there's no official Three on Thursday, but it's what I've planned and I'm going with it anyway!

1. 19 Crimes. Yes, it's still a thing and now, with more flavors! Lydia brought a bottle of The Banished to our party on Saturday and we enjoyed it immensely. I checked out Costco's selection on Tuesday. They still only carry the Red Blend, but it's still (only) $8.49 a bottle. I had Sara pick out two and hopefully I'll have another cork to add to my collection by the time 2018 rolls around.

2. Giada's Roasted Pork Loin Stuffed with Spinach and Prosciutto. Sara made this for Christmas Eve dinner. It was hands down one of our best meals (and not only because Sara did the cooking!).

We also had green beans (steamed and seared) and wild rice with pecans and cranberries. Marc and I will have the leftovers tonight (he's finally feeling a little better - thank you for all your kind get well messages!) and I'm sure it will all be delicious the second time around.

3. Spiced Pear Martini.
Inspired by the leftover spiced simple syrup (from Bonny's Spiced Rum Cocktail), I had planned to make these Christmas Day ... but when I ended up being the designated driver, I saved them for last night.

2 oz gin
1 oz spiced pear liqueur
1 oz cranberry juice
1/2 oz spiced simple syrup

Shake over ice and serve straight up.

Isn’t it great when your kids do the cooking? Our daughter made our Christmas brunch.

I love the meals my kids make best! What fun and that drink looks yummy!

I've added the recipe for pork to my file, as it sounds (and looks) delicious! You could create some sort of Crime stopper game with all the corks you've collected. Sadly, 19 Crimes is not available here.

Sounds and looks delicious all around! I'm thinking of whipping these up for NYE! We made the G & T she had last week for Christmas and they were fabulous.

Looks like your holidays were wonderful (except for Marc getting sick...glad he is on the mend). Can't believe the price of 19 Crimes for you...jealous!

That pork sounds fabulous - I'm wondering about it now for New Year's Eve dinner. Hmmmmm ...

That pork loin sounds wonderful! I made Ina Garten's Company Pot Roast for Christmas dinner and it came out so good! I'm going to keep my eye out for 19 Crimes!

Oh my goodness, does that dinner look delicious! It seems we've been existing on party/snack foods and I'm more than ready for a good meal. Sadly, I'll have to do the cooking. : )

Dinner does look delicious [and I know it was] and sorta like what we're having tonight! I'm hoping to try the 19 Crimes Uprising version tonight. I did notice that our Kroger carries the other blends now. Happy Friday!

Everything looks just yummy! Wish there was a way to actually taste it all without having to make it - wouldn't that be a blast?
Now, I'm hungry and off to snack on some hummus and olive oil crackers...a very poor substitute. Glad Marc's feeling mucho better!
Happy New Year!

Green beans steamed AND seared! I have to try that! We usually steam or sautee/sear. That pork loin sounds delicious!
