Merry Christmas Eve, Eve

This is a supper I’ve been enjoying my whole life. Mom says she has been making this cranberry orange sauce since before I was born. I can also remember having cornish game hens growing up. I just love them, they are adorable and delicious (and $2.50 a piece).

I’ve never made cornish game hens for Bowen and he had never had them until yesterday–I do believe the little birds will be in our weekly meal rotation from here on..here’s the recipe I’ll be using. Hope you enjoy!

Roasted Cornish Game Hens (recipe for 2)

Rinse and dry hens after salt water bath. Place 1 T minced garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper in the inside of the bird. Do the exact same to the outside (1 T garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper). Roast birds in a 450 degree over until internal tempature reaches 160. If the birds begin to brown, cover with foil. Once cooking is almost complete (birds are turning golden brown), pour cranberry, orange glaze on hens. (see recipe below)
