My favorites were my grandmother's recipe for whitefish salad that my parents make every year (from whole whitefish ordered from Barney Greengrass in NYC) and a grilled beef tenderloin served simply with horseradish sour cream and some fabulous champagne and wine choices by my sister.

Isn't Barney Greengrass such a gem?

I've had a couple of memorable dishes during this holiday season: 1. "Chesapeake Sweets" oysters grown by my neighbor, Luke Breza. 2. Mom's unbelievable fruitcake - everyone says they hate fruitcake, but they haven't had Mom's - it's all nuts, candied/dried fruits and booze - only the tiniest bit of cake binds all the goodies together. 3. my very own herb-wrapped pork loin roasted in the oven and finished on a wood-fired grill - unbelievably delicious, if I do say so myself!

The oysters, btw, were at Rhonda35's (above) house! And indeed, the herb-wrapped pork loin was dandy.

My holiday began last night with grilled oysters and raw oysters (with a choice of horseradish sauce, mignonette or Sriracha), served with Cava. That's definitely been the highlight. The Fritos I bought at the rest-stop today did not compare.
