Colossal Shrimp Parmesian

The really big shrimp, butterfly, breaded with panko bread crumbs, makes a real crusty coating.

A homemade Red Sauce real spicy, Fresh Mozzarella fresh ground pepper,Fresh grated romano and parmesian cheeses, Proscutto chopped and thrown on the top and put under the broiler just before serving.


A real nice Pinot is great with it who says you need a white with seafood!

Christmas day will be most of the family getting together for either turkey or prime rib (I haven't heard yet), and more games.

The day after, DD and I escape and make a nice quiet 18 hour drive to Virginia. We'll do some skiing and just hanging out. She flies out early New Year's day so we'll have our usual quiet eve, and not make midnight. I'll come back home and watch college football all day on Jan 1.
What is your ride these days?

An update: My mom went ahead and made my pie. Lord have mercy! It was awesome. If you like chocolate and pecans, I highly recommend this pie. Just a regular pecan pie mix with 6oz's of dark choc chips mixed in.

Hope I see y'all tomorrow. Afraid I might slip into a coma after eating this baby.

As my BIL put it we have bait and spaghetti for Christmas Eve. Actually it is calamari, fried smelt, and spaghetti with an olive oil and anchovy sauce.

Christmas Day would normally be leftovers from Christmas Eve, but this year we're going to the MIL house and I don't know what she is cooking.

It sounds like there will be some good eating this holiday season. I guess I need to say what I usually have. Christmas Eve is buffet style: Center stage will be a pineapple boat with strawberries & pineapple; marinated mushrooms; taco chips with bean dip; potato chips with french onion dip; meatballs and two types of dipping sauce; spiral ham & various breads and rolls with salad dressing, spicy mustard, pickles, etc.; veggie tray with olives, pickles, cauliflower, cherry tomatoes,pepperoncini; beer and Fish House Punch.

Christmas morning: sausage & mushroom quiche; fruit salad w/yogurt dressing; clams casino; assortment of sweet rolls; Bloody Mary's; orange juice; coffee.

I hope you all have a great holiday and that the market is up in 2008.
