Christmas Eve Menu

Below is the menu for our wonderful Christmas Eve dinner.

For those who are not familiar with traditional Italian dishes, Sunday Gravy is a homemade pasta sauce which is studded with sausage, meatballs, braciole and ribs. The meats cook all day in the sauce and imparts a really nice flavor to it. Much better than a plain tomato sauce. Once the sauce is finished, all the meats are removed and served separately from the sauce. There are very few recipes that I won't share and this is one of them! My grandmother used to make this recipe and I started making it several years ago when I was first married. I don't have my Grandmother's original recipe but have been told my version is just as good!

I wish everyone who reads this blog, a very Merry Christmas. I hope you and your families enjoy a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!
