Just wanted to post my tables for Christmas and Christmas Eve. It was a cozy dinner for two on both days. Actually our first holiday alone. I just made sure I set the table pretty and had a very simple dinner planned because we did not want too many leftovers.
Christmas Eve has been celebrated in our family forever....first with my moms family. As my cousins had children, we decided to celebrate with our own families. My mom was the twelfth child. I have 31 first cousins not counting their spouses. We just got too big!
We celebrate the Feast of the Seven Fishes. My sister in law hosts Christmas Eve....it is not unusual for her to have twenty or more people.
Since it was just the two of us, we decided to have just what we each could not do without! I made an antipasto, shrimp cocktails and anchovies with spaghetti. There is an Italian name for the spaghetti but I don't know how to spell it. lol
