June, I haven't made Pissaladiere Nicoise for ages! Thanks for the reminder. The other two sound just as delicious. Will a bottle of white do?

It's a Feast of the Seven Fishes for us, tonight.

Sardine and pignoli crostini with lemon aioli

Stuffed clams and stuffed peppers (anchovy in the filling)

Seared scallops over frissee with grilled shrimp

Lobster ravioil with caviar cream sauce

Eggplant Napoleons stuffed with crabmeat

Salmon wellington with currants, pignoli and sauteed mushrooms with a sage and shallot glaze.


Dessert is a million christmas cookies, Tiramisu and a triple layer gingerbread cake with cream cheese frosting.

The Proseco is for the first few courses. There's a Pinot Noir for the last couple of courses, and a Banfi Red Regal for dessert.

That is...if I ever get out of here.

The tradition in my family is that we will all meet at my son's house after church service and stuff ourselves with some of the best hors d' oevres and appetizers and drinks and cookies, and whatever. Then open gifts and eat some more.
So many people are having pizza, maybe we should add that to our menu.

Coming from an Italian family, I remember that tradtion well. We don't do that anymore but I sure do like your menu. Too bad we got away from it. And I'm glad to know I'm not the only one that likes anchovies.
