@mrsSonthebeach:  Mmmmmm, sounds GOOD! We’re hosting my parents and DH’s parents and their spouses tonight.  I’m making a pork loin and roasted red skin garlic potatoes (I LOVE the smell of garlic!!).  I also made an apple pie for dessert and I want to eat it right now.  The pregnancy is excuse enough to dig in before anyone gets here, right? =)

and for dessert there’s homemade fudge and cookies, chocolate pound cake, Italian cream cake and chocolates. Everything smells so good, I’m drooling waiting for everyone to arrive!

It’s the first Christmas that it’s just me and Darling Husband (he can’t get off work – wahhh) so I am cooking up a storm to keep busy. Today I just popped a whole chicken in the crock pot with honey mustard rub and will be roasting red potatoes to go with. Tomorrow am we are having stuffed baked potatoes (baked potato hollowed out and refilled with breakfasty items such as an egg, cheese, and bacon), and then tomorrow afternoon we have beef bordelaise, corn on the cob, peas, and baked bananas with cinnamon and honey for dessert. Doing as much prep as possible today so I can just laze around tomorrow!

That cheesecake looks great. Mine ALWAYS crack. And it’s always right when I think it’s not going to!

I’m Italian & Roman Catholic so we don’t eat meat today 🙂 I’m at my grandmother’s with all of my family and were having pasta with clam sauce, shrimp, fish salads, etc. My favourite meal of the year! So exited!!

@mrsSonthebeach:  I’ve never made it before – found the idea on Pinterest. Should be yum!

I think we’re going to order some Vietnamese food, haha. I cooked for so many people at Thanksgiving that i’m not willing to do it again for Christmas. I did make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, though!

@WannaBeeMrsB:  Clams and shrimp are meat. Meat = animal right?

We are having my parents and grandparents here. We’re throwing some pizza in the oven. 

Classy, right?! haha

@crayfish:  For whatever reason (I’m sure someone here knows) fish isn’t considered meat for a lot of Catholics. My family has always done the fish on Christmas Eve thing too.  My Italian Catholic grandma always tries to convince me to observe Lent even though I’m nonpracticing. “Just eat an omlete instead!” she’ll tell me despite my objections that eggs are indeed meat.

We made egg nog (Alton Brown recipe- yum), pizza stuffed mushrooms and “sushi shots” (wonton cups with avocado salsa & sushi grade tuna, served with wasabi oil, sweet soy & sriracha) to bring to an appetizer dinner tonight.

I also made egg pie (potato crust with eggs, vegetables, bacon & cheese), coconut flour pumpkin muffins and sausage for breakfast after we open gifts tomorrow morning.

@crayfish:  My grandmother was straight off the boat from Italy, and always served calamari on pasta for Christmas Eve. I think fish is acceptable, just not other types of meat. Kind of like a pescatarian holiday, I guess 😛
