holiday prep

Today is all about rolling out the cookie dough and making homemade pasta for the Christmas Eve lasagna. Yum.

I do love the traditions I grew up with, and the traditional foods, too, but I'm sure glad I married into a family that makes homemade lasagna for Christmas Eve and zeppoli for Christmas morning.

Don't worry, I'll still make eggs and grits for Christmas brunch, but who doesn't love lasagna and honey-soaked doughnuts?!


  1. Sounds wonderful.. I love traditions too and it's been amazing starting new ones with my girls this year. Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, happy new year...

  2. you, too, alana! a very merry christmas!

  3. Yum! My husband makes a coffee cake with raspberry filling on Christmas morning. Aren't family traditions that center around food great?

  4. that sounds yummy! our christmas eve tradition was always osyter stew at my nana's. when nana died, benny just couldn't get that stew right so he morphed it into oyster chowder. it's very good! merry christmas to you and yours.

  5. kelly, that sounds delicious! after my nola excursion, i can't stop dreaming of oysters!

    merry christmas to your family!

  6. lisa, i think i have to fly to chicago tomorrow!

    merry christmas!

  7. Honey-soaked donuts?! (short circuits computer with drool)

  8. lol! i thought i'd hear from you re: doughnuts!

    officially they are zeppoli, but really, they are a bowl full of doughnuts with honey poured all over them. makes me drool just thinking about it, too!

    wait, aren't you off-continent, jacqui? ;)
