We pause in the midst of our Italian Christmas feast, spanning two generations, two days, and at least two pounds, to offer our friends a Merry Christmas in Italian!
The hoomans are being good about sharing, so last night we had our share of the cod and one shrimp- each from the cioppino, and this morning we had a piece of pannetone made like French toast and decorated like Italian Flags although our pieces did not have quite enough of the red and green sugar sprinkles to suit my taste.
Tonite we have a pork roast that muzzer is stuffing with spinach and provolone, mashed Yukon potatoes with lots (and lots) of garlics, and a dish that has two of my favorites in it: Broccolini and Burratta cheese! mmmmm and Pine Nuts! And my sissie made this torte that has Meyer Lemon and dark chocolate layers. But we don't think we will get anything of that, except maybe the crust.
We hope you enjoyed the Italian Carols, and We will see you tomorrow with our favorite tune for Boxing Day.
Gussie and Teka
