Christmas Eve

A beautiful festive evening with wonderful friends. A powerful Christmas Eve Mass followed by conversation and a lovely dinner. Dinner was an Italian tradition –  the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Shrimp cocktail, Grilled Oysters, Crab dip, and an amazing linguini with seafood marinara sauce. The sauce was flavorful jarred tomatoes and herbs from a neighbors garden, garlic, clams, mussels, calamari, scallops and lobster. Fantastic dish and great work by Keith. Before heading to Mass, we stopped at Island Creek Oyster Company in Duxbury, Massachusetts for the freshest and most flavorful oysters on the East Coast. I grilled these with a little butter and herbs over charcoal. Fantastic celebration. Faber-Castell Pitt pens in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
