We just wanted to wish all of our readers, old and new, happy holidays. It’s been a delicious year and here are a few delicious starters/meals that we cooked since We Are Never Full launched that would be perfect for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day dinner. Until next time, folks, relax, eat, drink and be merry. I’m so glad I don’t have to work for 12 days! HAPPY HOLIDAYS… thanks for reading and we’ll see you with some new stuff very soon!
Chicken with Figs (above) would make a cheap, easy and absolutely fabulous Christmas Day dinner. Substitute dried figs with fresh ones and it still tastes perfect.
Hornazo (chorizo and egg bread) may be technically a bread made in Spain for Easter-time, but it doesn’t mean it wouldn’t get you the “wow” factor at brunch on Christmas Day!
A not-so-favorite “Food Network” douche bag, Guy Fieri did help us with Christmas Eve drinks one year with his “Ginger Bling” drink. It really was delicious and it pains me to say that since it was created by a man who calls himself a “food dude” (gag me).
How about a roasted pork – Italian Style with some Salsa Verde. For very little effort you’ll get some “ooohs and aaaahs” from your guests.
Why not take your average “7 Fishes” dinner and sub this Spanish Arroz Marinero for your risotto dish? Your guests will not be disappointed.
But what would a “7 Fishes” meal be without a delicious, crispy Fritto Misto di Mare (Fried Mixed Seafood) paired with a creamy, fresh garlic aioli to dip?
How about a whole fish baked in salt? It keeps the fish moist but flavors it oh so nicely.
A quick and simple side dish or a starter to any meat dish on Christmas Day, this Roman favorite, Cacio e Pepe, will start any meal off right.
And, finally, a favorite dish by many, especially in the Latin-American households, Pernil, or Roasted Pork Shoulder/Butt – Puerto Rican-style. Again, very easy and very, very tasty.
