feliz natal

It is that time of year, about 2 weeks before Christmas, when all hell breaks loose in my Portuguese household. Food starts to be made, shopping trips being planned and the joy of the season can be heard throughout the house.

Above, a photo illustrating a typical table setting for the "consoada" (which is the Portuguese translation of Christmas Eve).

Here is a list of popular dishes for Christmas. It is in Portuguese, which doesn't help if you don't know the language.

A popular dish every Portuguese Christmas Eve is bacalhau - aka Cod Fish - Many different ways to make it, here's a Canadian recipe titled "Bacalhau" Then, there's all kinds of side dishes and other tasty treats like:
