Fish is required on Christmas Eve. Instead of the usual poached salmon, for after church tonight with in-laws, the kids, and friends, we are doing a big mess o' Marcella's Baked Filet of Sole with Tomato and Capers.
Great stuff, zingy. Easy, too, and only 15 minutes in the oven. Plus potatoes roasted in butter and olive oil, and steamed asparagus splashed with olive oil.
Wine, beer, Martinelli's, Champagne, and Eggnog.
Then Christmas cookies. Then a long winter's nap.
