Fortunately we Orthodox celebrate Christmas the old-fashioned way: feasting until Theophany (Epiphany). That means I can show you many more VFYTs you’ve sent in. Let’s get to it:

Los Angeles, California

The reader who sent that in says rack of lamb is his daughter’s favorite. He also sent a shot of the cutest little girl nibbling on a lamb rib. Alas for you, no faces on VFYT.

Tacoma, Washington
‘From the mountains of Virginia’

The reader writes:

A very merry and blessed third day of Christmas to you from the mountains of Virginia! Every year we go to midnight Mass and have birthday cake for Jesus afterwards around 2 am. It is our daughter’s favorite tradition.

Mountain Lakes, NJ
Virginia

The reader writes:

Merry Christmas from Virginia! On the table, we have a ribeye roast (cooked to perfection with the sous vide and the exterior crisped in the oven) served with a red wine sauce, mashed potatoes, asparagus with lemon and butter, and salad with pomegranate, pepitas, feta, and creamy garlic dressing. For dessert, we enjoyed Gramercy Tavern gingerbread cake with warm lemon sauce. So good!

Here’s a super-festive one:

Duluth, Minnesota

The reader writes:

Potato sausage, beets, rice pudding

Yet to come: Swedish meatballs, hardtack, lutefisk, fruit soup

Graham, Texas

This crab-cakey one comes from a reader who spent his last day in Covid isolation:

Baltimore, Maryland

Says the reader:

Goat cheese crusted filets with cream cheese mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus.

New Orleans, Louisiana

The reader writes:

Our Christmas morning tradition – gruyere and shallot potato latkes w/sour cream and caviar. This is the first one – tasted for quality control before friends come over.

Man! I’m getting hungry all over again. One more:

Lansdale, Pennsylvania
