Last night, I made our traditional Cioppino soup and then went to Midnight mass at St. Mary’s of the Lake to hear my 83 year old mother sing in the choir. Today, I am cooking the beef as well as the Yorkshire pudding, horseradish. and gravy. We will have the entire family clan over to the house.
Many of us are devastated by the news of Eric Fatla and he is in our thoughts and prayers as is his family today.
Despite such sadness, I hope that everyone celebrating today will hold their loved ones particularly close and enjoy a wonderful day. It is a white Christmas in Chicago and beautiful outside.
