Christmas Eve 2014


Christmas is the one holiday when I like to prepare and consume too much food. It is a holiday that is packed with memories of delicious dishes prepared by so many amazing cooks that I have been fortunate to know. I try to recreate at least one or two of those memories each year to share with others or at least enjoy myself. This year I had a lot of delicious memories starting of course with Christmas Eve dinner at my sister’s house. There was a lot of seafood, I was trying to keep count but stopped counting when the fried smelts were put on the table. Lots of good wine and of course cookies!

The Fish Sauce with Fresh Pasta. That would have been enough.
But then there more…
Stuffed Calamari.

Frittelle di Baccala
Baccala Salad, I like the spicy one!
 Fried Smelts!

Seafood Polpettes, my contribution to the dinner.

And wine…
And Christmas Cookies!
 Thank you to Lenore and Ralph for another memorable dinner!

I am a graphic/web designer. When not at work I love being in the kitchen. It brings back good memories of all the great cooks in my family who are no longer with us. Sometimes when my husband comes home he will say our house smells like an Italian restaurant. I know of no greater compliment.
