Christmas Eve - traditional Italian fish-based meal. Baccala (cod for the mangia cakes) done in a red sauce with pasta. More baccala lightly fried. Octopus and squid in red sauce. Rapini, cabbage, homemade sausage (my siblings and I made it - I know, not fish, but still our parents' tradition, so we're keeping those traditions going).
A total of 25 people (we rent a small hall with full kitchen facilities). I have two sister's and one brother, so with kids and grandkids and boyfriends and girlfriends, still a room full.
My daughters are coming down again from Toronto on Sunday, so we'll do the turkey dinner with homemade Italian stuffing (mom's recipe), veggies, etc.
So for today, a light meal for the two of us and a lot of peace and quiet.
