The holidays are here, the holidays are here! I absolutely love this time of year…so festive and fun, especially since we don’t do any traveling and just stay local. San Francisco pretty much empties out during the holidays so it always feels like we have our super festive city all to ourselves! All the time of work doesn’t hurt either.

So what are we eating this week?  Well I find that this time of year starts to get a bit heavy with all of the classic, American holiday comfort food so we’re breaking things up a bit by starting the week off with a Mexican taco night. Nice and easy but delicious. Then it’s time to jump right into one of our favorite holiday traditions…Christmas Eve Fondue Dinner!

We do all three courses…cheese, meat/veggies in broth and chocolate. It’s a nice, long, luxurious meal that is perfectly conducive to good conversation with good friends. This year we’re having 3 friends who are also in town for the holidays over to join us…but even when it’s just the two of us it makes for a very festive and romantic Christmas Eve.

On Christmas Day we’re going out…which is new for us. But a friend suggested the Top of the Mark Christmas Day brunch so that’s what we’re doing with a couple of friends. It’s a beautiful roof-top lounge with music so I think it will be a nice change from our typical roast at home.

Wednesday and Thursday we’ll have leftovers and then easy Tortellini Soup and then we’re heading up to Sacramento to celebrate Christmas all over again with two of Christian’s sisters, our brother-in-law and our niece and nephew. Then from there we’ll be heading straight to Pasadena for the Rose Bowl and Parade. Happy Holidays all!
