Christmas Eve 2012

Christmas Eve with my Dad’s side of the family is chocked-full of even more culinary tradition than Christmas Day. The traditional italian Seven Fishes always make an appearance in one form or another, but the star of the show is always the crustaceans.

And nothing says Christmas Eve in our family without a big-ass pile of King Crab Legs. I’ve always enjoyed the crab far more than the lobster and this year was no exception.

I do my best to make sure the food is the star of my site, but I was so grateful to be able to spend Christmas Eve with my family and enjoy a meal with them, that I couldn’t resist posting a photo of our elongated dinner table. In fact, it was this very table that insprired me to write this Christmas Euphiction piece a couple years ago.

I hope you all are enjoyed your Christmas Eve, both your menus and your families.

And remember… the food abides…
