Have Yourself A Yummy Little Christmas Now

In a few hours, my house will be full of people, from family to friends to little children. I look forward to the Christmas Eve festivities every year. It’s such a warm, wonderful time to spend with the ones you love.It’s also a wonderful time to eat with the ones you love.

My husband dropped a pretty penny yesterday at Scittino’s Italian Market in Catonsville, Maryland. The Italian tradition of the seven fish dinner may live on in many homes, but not here. We begin with a huge antipasto where we indulge in cheeses, breads, prosciutto, capicola, roasted red peppers, olives, artichoke hearts, and…I must stop. My mouth is starting to water already. Pour me a glass of wine.

Last night, I spent hours baking cookies and prepping the baked ziti and fish we will be having as our main course along with what we call “The Good Salad.” We are on our way to being full and fat by the night’s end. And I haven’t even mentioned the desserts yet.

I’d love to write more about this delectable meal, but I must get going. They are coming in a few hours and I must shower and get the place ready.

But before I go, I’d like to wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and to those of you who celebrate other holidays, very happy ones as well. I’ve had a lovely year and I hope you have, too.

I sincerely thank you for reading my blog; you all keep me going.

Enjoy your holiday and have yourself a yummy little Christmas now.

From My Family to Yours...Merry Christmas!

    Merry Christmas, my friend. It sounds like you’ve got the food thing down for sure. Enjoy! I’ve got to run off and make tomorrow’s dessert. A short drive to my sister’s house for Christmas dinner.
