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.

Going to my friends for supper . There dirt poor (they bring it upon themselves) , so I buy the turkey each year and his wife cooks it . Works for everyone

I'm liking your prime rib idea though as it's pretty much my favorite meal
I'll have mine rare/medium rare please

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Very thoughtful of you Rick.

Yesterday I had to pop into the drug store to pick something up. The 20-something ahead of me was picking out a scratch and win lottery ticket, and taking his time about it. I'm wondering why he was taking his time and asking the clerk to help him pick one out. When he finally had one, and paid for his purchases, he gave the lottery ticket to the clerk and wished her a Merry Christmas. Just a small act but made me smile.

Good on ya Rick. Dinner with my son and his family at his inlaws place.

Anytime someone says menu I think about how Woody Woodpecker spelled in a cartoon from about 60 years ago. Menu...m-e-n y-o-u...menu.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

My wife's two sisters plus one husband (94 year old mother in law lives with us) will be here for a late afternoon dinner. Our daughter is home from Grad School in Paris and our son is home from Grad School at Vanderbilt. A GREAT DAY. By popular vote, I'm cooking steaks on the grill. We do turkey at Thanksgiving, steak at Christmas.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
God Bless US Every One!
