Tomorrow is Christmas Eve.

Growing up, I always looked forward to the night before Christmas. I have very fond memories of going to Mass in the evening (even if I kicked and screamed all the way because I hated wearing dresses, MA!) and heading over to my grandparents’ house for dinner. Dinner was nothing fancy. We would order a couple of pizzzza pies from Pizza Hut and chit-chat around the table.

Besides getting to open presents the night before Santa arrived, my Uncle Mike, who is a wonderful artist and quite hysterical, would draw cartoon characters for my brothers and me. The characters would be different every year and we anxiously waited to see what kind of mischief they would find themselves in.

I really enjoy the simplicity of Christmas Eve.  The world begins to settle down after going a zillion miles an hour since Black Friday.  It’s the one night of the year where everything comes together and I experience the true magic of Christmas.  I just want to pause Christmas Eve so I can take it all in.

And when I say take it all in, I’m including food in that Christmas circle of love. These sweet potato bites with apple cider brussel sprouts and cranberry gastrique will make you pump the brakes. The bites do require a little labor of love, but are packed full of holiday magic. I bet you can’t eat just one.

Merry Christmas, friends!
