I am also going to grill steaks (and enjoy a glass or two of red wine). I've got a big ribeye marinating in a balsamic/garlic/honey marinate right now. I'm also fixing a baked potato, asparagus and mocha fudge pudding for dessert.

We used to make and eat perohe on Christmas eve. I don't feel like doing that this year. Lazy girl! So we are going to have a nibbly plate of cheese, crackers, pickles, garlic sausage and oysters. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Can't wait. I might put on a pot of soup too for those who want something warm to add in.

Yeah, I know. We have cocktails at home, then just get a bottle for dinner. The food is spectacular though.

We're going to a neighbor's for wine and munchies. If we're still hungry later we'll just grab a snack or some of the many cookies SO baked this year.

We're going out for lunch, since we'll be cooking tonight. DH got some smoked brats out of the freezer for our suppeer.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Christmas has changed for us this year because of the snow so won't be making it to the in-laws tonight four rouladen (actually we did that a week ago) and won't be heading to my Dad's tomorrow.

Tonight after church we are having red snapper and I am not sure what else. I just know I am really looking forward to making a nice meal for the two of us.

The tradition of 7 fishes has changed alittle this year.
I've reduced it to 5.
Meal starts at 4:30PM, though and goes thru til 10pm-ish.
(used to be at least midnight.)

Appetizers: clams oregano/oreganato
shrimp cocktail - instead of scampi
mussels marinara
then and with:
cold antipasto with anchovies

then we open stocking gifts - the 5 kids - none mine

then dinner:
lobster tails and fillet mignon, baked potato

then we open gifts

then dessert:
my cheesecake and lemon meringue pie, fruit
and cookie platter

We don't eat as much as we used to be able to when we were younger, nor do we seem to imbibe like "the old days". Not even
thought about eggnog this year. Nor do we seem have the stamina. I know by 10pm my bed will be screaming for me, but
I have the drive home to contend with (12 long miles, HA!)

It's hot and humid here today, so I hope everyone stays out of my personal space in the kitchen.

somewhere else on this board I thought I said I was making three different pizzas tonight. 1. Stuffed Broccoli Rabe Pizza; 2. Pissaladiere Nicoise; 3. Pesto and Artichokes with fresh Mozzarella.

Anyone who wants to come by, bring a bottle of wine.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
