I am part Italian and my Husband is all Italian and we always do the 7 fishes dinner for
Christmas Eve! We do a little things a little different as we usually use
calamari, fried smelts, anchovy sauce for the pasta, Flounder, Scallops, Shrimp, and
scungilli. Sometimes we even use crab For the none Italians reading Calamari is squid and the scungilli is refered to as Italian Conch but its more like a kind of a whelk. We also have a large antipasto with Caponata (marinated eggplant) fresh mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, kalamata olives, black olives, mini stuffed peppers, marinated artichoke, and sometimes some marinated or pickled vegetables. We have pasta course too! lots of food LOL
Here is a photo from 05 with a small antipasto
My favorite is the traditional deserts we make cheesecake, Chocolate rum balls, almond butter cake, creme puffs, assorted filled cookies, cannoli, Oreo cookie pie (its more like a pudding), chocolate cream pie, cherry cream Jello, eggnog punch, and pettifore's here are a few pics of that.
