A week before Christmas Eve, I was making ravioli with my mom for our Italian Feast.
It took over 4 hours of work. They were patiently waiting in my freezer for this special occasion!
They were worth the effort! I’ll post the recipe this week…
So my mom always hosts Christmas Eve. She sets a beautiful table, doesn’t she?
Every year we open Christmas crackers before we dig into our salad.
This year they were filled with some cool items. I got a key chain flashlight.
They also have silly/stupid jokes inside- but we laugh anyway.
My brother Ryan & I got my mom some yummy cheeses from Murray’s in NYC. We ate a lot of it!
My sister-in-law brought some caviar! Totally fancy!
Here’s her sparkling wine…and my nephew in the background. I’m busy eating & photo taking.
It’s what I do….
As always, Coop loved playing with his cousins, Henry & Eleanor.
Cut to dinner.
Some bunny loved his Christmas cracker! He insisted we all wear the paper crowns that were inside.
My mom made her infamous green salad. It’s good to get some greens in. Wait til you see what’s next.
Here’s the ravioli, braciola, meatballs, sausages & garlic bread. Whoa. WHOA.
You might have to loosen your belt when you look at this.
And here’s my plate…. Don’t judge. The weight gain was well worth it 😉
To say it was good is an understatement! Can’t wait for next year’s Italian Feast!
Hope you all had a fantastic holiday! I’m definately looking forward to lighter fare this week….
