Christmas Dinner

  For Thanksgiving the food we eat for the most part is all very simular  most everyone has the same dishes just made slightly different.  Christmas is a whole other story.   Do you do roast?  Ham?  Tamales?  Pizza? I have heard it all. 
We have had a last minute change of plans because 3 feet of snow is currently being dumped onto Sierra Nevada's which we drive over to get to California to be with my family on Christmas.  My parents are flying here instead.  It is easier to fly 2 people than it is 5, not to mention all the presents.  Anyways  now Christmas Dinner is falling in my lap on my table.   I have never done a Christmas dinner before I am always an attendant  not the host.  I want it too be great.
 What is your families tradition?  What are you making this year.  I will probably keep it Italian (since my family is)  in that case you are in luck that means I iwll be making my grandmother famous Sugo (meat sauce)  it is the best thing I have EVER had.   So  since I will be making it and  it is the season of giving I think I might share it with you as well. 

Your pasta will never be the same again.  Merry Christmas!!!


  1. I really want to do a lasagna for Christmas, but we don't have a great recipe, so I think you should post one or email me one or something. PLEASE!?! I will love you forever.

  2. We do lasagna for Christmas Eve. I thought it was fairly nontraditional until I've been seeing a lot of other people do it too. Cannot wait for the pasta sauce recipe!

  3. I too am looking forward to the pasta sauce recipe. I think you should make what ever you feel comfortable making. Everybody will have more fun if you are comfortable and confident.

  4. Jessica I do have a lasagna recipe on here it was one of my first posts so it is a bit rusty, but it is still what I use
    good luck!

  5. Thank you! I am totally going to make that soon. We're going to do your baked Ziti for Christmas. YAY!

  6. Nick----- I'm sure your dinner would make Grandma Adele proud. I'm looking forward to it.
