My [Italian-American] Christmas Eve Menu


Happy Holidays!!! 
Christmas Eve in our family belongs to the Italian-Americans. That is, my mom and I are in charge of the big Christmas Eve dinner, which we do at her house. In case anyone was wondering what our dinner looks like, I wanted to publish my menu. You can get some inspiration and even some recipes in case you are planning one yourself or are just curious.

Where possible, I have linked up recipe from my blog, which I hope will help everyone!
