Funny you ask CG. DH and I were talking about this last night.
It seems that we will be staying put for Christmas after all, so what to cook/bake?
Here's what we've decided:
Christmas Eve will be our take on the Italian tradition of the Seven Fishes-
1) Something with Anchovies (I was thinking of Trader Joe's mini cheese pizzas topped with the anchovies)
2) Imitaion Krab Cocktails
3) Something with the frozen Cod Fillets we've got int the deep freeze
4) Lomi Lomi Salmon
5) Something with that Smoked Trout from Trader Joe's (maybe on a crostini)
6) Ahi Poke
7) Tako Poke (maybe, that's if I can find the Octopus)
... kind of a 'pick' night...
Not many folks `round here eat fish/seafood, they don't like it...another than a Fish-Fry that is... what do I accept, this is the middle of the desert after all!
Christmas morning I'll make the ATK recipe for Cinnamon Rolls, DELISH!
For Christmas dinner, we both agreed on Boar's Head Sweet Sliced Ham with their Brown Sugar Glaze, Macaroni and Cheese, Green Beans and Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
I'll also make his new favorite dessert Apple Crostata with ice cream
Isn't it funny how we associate Holidays with food... and he STILL claims to NOT be a foodie...
