    Not this year............

    I made eggplant parm and was thinking about you and Borgo for those sauce recipes posted a while back. Short on time, I bought sauce from a local Italian joint (owners from Bayonne).

    They DO NOT sell their sauce, but we are both JET fans so he made an exception. TRUE story. I said, we're both JET fans, please make an exception.
    He said, OK.

    Enjoy the holidays.

    No.

    Christmas EVE.

    It's basically an Italian American family tradition. Friends in Nutely have been doing for ages, about 60 people show up--pretty much Feast of the Forty Nine Fishes now. :D

    The fact that you don't beleive in God is your business. But it seems like you like to make it public very often. So if what you are looking for is some sort of attentiion then here it is. "You are cool man!"

    Feel better? Now GFY.

    And Merry Christmas!

    What does believing in God have to do with Christmas?

    Besides, people are pretty vocal about their belief in god...nobody here gets catches any flak for saying "God Bless" or asking for mention in prayers when dealing with difficult times in life. Why you gotta be all "hard" and sh*t, dawg?

    Shove off......and Merry Saturnalia :P[/QUOTE]

    You do Saturnalia also? Do you rejoice in the misfotunes of others whilist eating rumcake? Did you also pledge to eat only critter with exoskeletons during the feast period? Soon I will complete my conversion upon my baptism in the pool of lemon lime jello. Plumber I look forward to our annual meeting this year at the Malibu Grand Prix and waterslides in june.

    :D

    Thanks for your kind words, my friend. I know you, and many others on this board--except BURGERMIKE :D--can cook circles around me.

    I'm from a mountain town in Italy, so other than baccalà (which we call [I]merluso[/I]) and [I]pesci macaci[/I] (sp?) or fried smelts, I didn't grow up with too much fish on Christmas Eve. Tonight, I made shrimp in a sage cream sauce, saffron rice, haricot vert sauteed in olive oil, shallots and garlic (and a little chopped thyme), and a traditional focaccia from my region, which has rosemary and coarse salt on top. Dessert is a dark chocolate cake with ice cream. Wine is Stokes' fav as well as one of mine, Côtes du Rhône.

    No matter what you are eating this evening, I hope you are sharing it with people you love. Have a great Christmas, everyone. Much health & happiness to you all in 2010.

    I worked in an Italian deli in high school and we sold Baccala every Christmas.

    The left over Baccala after Christmas was soaked in water and we made Baccala parmigiana for lunch as a hero sandwich.

    99 cents and they wouldn't sell very well.

    Merry to all.
