Martha Stewart or Jeff Foxworthy


I was recently asked by a good friend if our Christmas was more like a Martha Stewart or Jeff Fox worthy Christmas... I thought about it for a moment and decided that our Christmas is more like Martha Stewart meets the Sopranos... We try hard to live up to the Martha Stewart image of the Holidays but somehow fall short. I am not sure anyone can live up to that kind of detail although I love it and try every year... Our Christmas always includes family, gifts, tradition and most importantly food...
I always bake cookies some of my own recipes some I have gathered from friends and others that are old family recipes of Italian cookies. We always have the tradition holiday fair and no good Italian house hold would be complete at the holidays without a good Eggplant Parm (parmigiana that is on the table). My father in law honors us with that dish every year because he make the best Eggplant we have ever tasted. We will play music and graze on goodies all day and this year we feel very fortunate that our good friend Wendy will be joining us with her two girls Kate and Claire..... I love Christmas and all the trimmings.....
