holiday prep

Today is all about rolling out the cookie dough and making homemade pasta for the Christmas Eve lasagna. Yum.

I do love the traditions I grew up with, and the traditional foods, too, but I’m sure glad I married into a family that makes homemade lasagna for Christmas Eve and zeppoli for Christmas morning.

Don’t worry, I’ll still make eggs and grits for Christmas brunch, but who doesn’t love lasagna and honey-soaked doughnuts?!
