Feast of 7 Fishes Italian Menu For Christmas Eve With What's Cookin' Italian Style Cuisine

Amazing how fast the time can fly. It feels like we just started 2010 and here it is gone and a new year to begin. Last year I added a bit of History with Christmas Eve here. So many Fishes are made on the Eve, suggestions  can be mussels, crab, lobster, scallops, rock shrimp, stone crab, shrimp, calamari, eel, snails,  tuna, salmon, walleye, haddock,  smelts, sardines and scungilli the list goes on an on. I put together what my family loves.

 I have made some wonderful fabulous foodie friends this year and am thankful for every one that visits, comments and enjoys reading my blog this is so addicting and the common bond is we all love to eat and cook! The other wonder of cooking online together is the admiration we all have for each other, you can feel the excitement when you have really had a great post in your comments, words and it's just a fabulous gift! Your all a  wonderful supportive group of amazing bloggers. Some of the most rewarding friendships come from the universal bond of cooking together!  I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of my readers in appreciation for all the time you have made to come here in 2010, read, comment.  Your support has brought me a great sense of joy to move into the new year with such a wonderful audience of family and foodie friends. I can't thank you all enough for all your lovely awards and thoughtfulness.  I hope I have returned that thankfulness in this heartfelt note.

Here's a blessing to share with  you and all your families, our troops and those less fortunate this holiday season,"May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!  ~
