You guys saw all the fish pics from Christmas Eve in this post but I also wanted to share Christmas Day photos!
We went to the North End to stock up on bread, pasta, flowers, and desserts and visited my future Sil at the hospital to drop off some gifts and did not eat dinner at the fiances house until around 5 pm and waited to open gifts until dinner time too. It was a small group – just his parents and us and his brother and then upstairs, his grandparents along with one of their relatives over and their nurse. So lots of people to visit with but not all at the same table!
We picked at the usual cheese and crackers and snacks followed by the first course, which was of course pasta! This time we got the pasta at Bricco. Lobster sauce made by Sals dad and plenty of pamesan cheese made this a great start to the meal.
Sal hooked us all up with this beauty…a roast, cooked and seasoned perfectly!
A peek at my plate….
Dessert….from Maria’s pastry shop.
Delicious and my kind of meal! I am a steak and potatoes kind of girl after all.
As for the gifts, I got tons of great stuff including peacock ornaments, fun ice cube trays, beauty and body products, gift cards, a sweater, and a scarf but here are 5 of my favorites!
MICHAEL KORS Jet Set Black/Gold Large Pebbled Leather Wristlet Wallet – similar style below (but mines gold and not monogrammed)
STACKERS jewellery box | classic duck egg blue & gray polka dot stacker set of 4 (a fun surprise in the mail from my sister!)
What about you – favorite gift and favorite food you had over the holidays?
