I’m curious if we have any other Italians here who still celebrate the Feast of Seven Fishes tonight?

For those of you who don’t know what that is, picture an Italian Sunday dinner gone into over drive, lol.

My family sits down to the table around 4pm or so...

we start with baked clams casino (topped w bacon), and the men get about a dozen each 🙄

Next comes a huge serving of mussels marinara, and a baccala (cod) salad, which is one of my favorite things, lol.

Next up are pasta in a white clam sauce and linguini in a red crab sauce (which if you’ve never had, I’m sorry for you). After the pastas we pick at the two dozen or so crabs that were in that super sweet crab flavored red sauce.

because this meal goes on for hours, we take a small break, and let the young ones open a few presents, then we come back to the table and get into some fried shrimp and calamari, stuffed flounder and cod fritters(?) and a mixed greens salad.

Thats it with the fish, but then we finish things off with dessert... Traditional home made struffoli, dozens of homemade cookies, fruit and nuts.

Lets just say I sit down to the table weighing around 180 or so, I’m probably 185 at the end of this 4-5 hour feast.

Then because we’re Italian, we all get together again tomorrow for antipasto, stuffed shells in a meat sauce, meat balls, bracciole, fried or parmigiana veal and chicken cutlets, salad  and another round of desserts...

I'm not Italian but I grew up in an Italian neighborhood does that count? My wife is half Italian. So no feast today but tomorrow we are sitting down to.... Hot antipasto, lasagna, chicken cutlet parm, eggplant parm and shrimp parm.  We already made dozens of cookies.  Including rainbow cookies. Working on a apple pie now.  A little over kill for four people don't ya think! I'll be eating leftovers until my birthday in June.

Happy Christmas and Merry Birthday to all the Spies at MGS!

Tomorrow I will be 70 years old. My birthday has always been a somber one as I have never played golf nor been able to go out to a fine restaurant (they are all closed & so are the bars). So here’s to all the Christmas birthdays out there. I hope yours is a very happy day.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone. Hope everyone has a safe holiday season.  
 

I got my present this morning with the electricity finally coming back on after 18 hours without it.  Only in Iowa do you go from 45* at 8am to a blizzard, below 0* temps, and no power by 2pm. Not fun!

Merry Christmas All!!!!  Just finished putting out the gifts by the tree.  Excited to see the kids open them up and the magic when they wake up.  They are 6, 4, and 2 so should be some great memories.

That's awesome Tony! He's a fine looking little fella. I'm glad you got to travel down and meet him in person. I figure you'll spoil him rotten.
