AN ITALIAN CHRISTMAS

IMG_8045The month of December was a whirlwind. With catering parties, making and delivering gift boxes, and trying to see family and friends, the month flew by faster than any I have experienced before. My sister and her family came down from Oregon to spend the holiday and we decided to cook up an Italian inspired feast for our Christmas dinner. It was so satisfying and delicious. We gathered all of our ingredients from our favorite spots, McCall’s Meat and Fish, Atwater Village Farm, Cookbook, Whole Foods, Proof Bakery, and the farmers market. It was a perfect day of cooking, hanging out, and eating lots and lots and lots of food. Can’t wait to do it again next year!
