greetings ya’ll.

hope you had an excellent holiday, whatever you celebrate. over at the aversa household we partook in christmas festivities. christmas eve brought the tradition italian seafood dishes – bacala (no relation to bobby), smelts, crab meat, shrimp, pasta with fish sauce.

on the 25th we cut up a ham, and mom served it up with her trademark rice pilaf – melts in your mouth, not your hand. the fried potatos glazed in feta cheese also served as a crowd pleaser.

the entire week home brought about more food favorites – from jim’s steakout chicken finger subs at 3am to western new york pizza and wings at various locations – with truck loads of homemade italian cookies enjoyed in between.

i left western new york this morning, a bunch of fun gifts in tow. but the items and gift cards pale in comparison to the time spent with loved ones. not to mention the one-year anniversary celebrated between my girlfriend and i, along with the delicious dinner we enjoyed atop the skylon tower in niagara falls, on, ca.

that being said – so much for kicking my starbucks addiction. i now HAVE to spend $50 there. plus my new travel mug earns me a discount.

and don’t get me wrong, i like the cds sold in the coffee shop, but there’s only so much johnny cash and etta james i need in my life.

big shouts to d-dubs for holding down while i was away… now back to your regularly scheduled blogging.
