Only one day off for me, so nothing too big. I don't even have any meal plans. Maybe just sleep as long as possible. We are heading out tomorrow for our Christmas shopping for each other and have three things to get for my office mates.

My plans are to stay home Christmas Eve and most of the next day. Then I will go to my daughter's to eat somewhere around three or so. Open presents and wait for all the grandkids to pile in. Then home to bed.

Christmas will be a quiet day at home.

I just need to stuff a couple of envelopes with Christmas cheer and pickup a small bottle of Myer's dark rum for the eggnog.

Christmas dinner will be ham, kielbasa, cauliflower with cheese and cabbage salad. I still need to settle on a low carb treat for dessert.

I would love to do 7 Fishes for Christmas but I would be the only one eating it.

Being married to an Italian, my daughter does it every year.

Seven (or worst yet Feast of the Twelve Fishes, oh my) Fishes ...



Myself being married to an Italian ...

CAN'T
DO
IT
ANY
MORE



A nice ham dinner, a quite night (no yelling, no flailing hands all about as they speak, sometimes more ... WAY too much drama for me )

But wait ...
if I could do the Seven Fishes they way that we like it,
would it still be within the "tradition" of the American-Italians?
Howzabout 7 different kinds of Poke?

My SIL, his four sisters and their spouses, their adult kids, like you said, all those hands flailing through the air. I swear someone is going to get knocked out one of these years. And all yelling louder than the one next to them so they can be heard. I come home with a headache each time.

My daughter makes a Marinara Sauce with all the fishes in there. Clams, scallops, Haddock, Cod, squid, and I forget the other two. Oh, stuffed oysters and quahogs. Those are baked.

See here's the thing Addie, we could eat the Haddock and Cod and that's it!
SO!
Why can't I make what we like?
One year, I think it was 2012, yeah that was it, we went to Mr.&Mrs. DF's home in Prescott and we had our own American-Italian 7 Fishes, I have some photos somewhere ... we had all lived in Hawaii before and so we made our version (btw, I'm the only non-Italian in the whole lot of them) with Poke and all kinds of goodies...
