The software I use to download the cool screen captures and my video from TIVO to the Mac isn't playing well with the new OS Snow Leopard, so while I devise a work around to being sans graphics I will ask: what did everyone think of Alton Brown's Christmas offering on Monday night? Also, if you're looking for the recipes, check here, I transcribed them.
I found it interesting AB took a look into the historical aspect of the holiday. It reminded of a condensed version of the History Channel's "The History of Christmas." I watch that special almost every time it is on.
As for the cooking, the wassail isn't something that appealed to me. ( I don't like eggnog either!) The duck, I don't know about it as well. The sugar plums, those looked tasty.
Was it me or was the Sugar Plum Fairy the most annoying GE character ever? I was hoping the great actress who plays the Mother of Culinary Invention would've been the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Loved the Charles Dickens segment. Probably the best part of the whole episode.
