We kept it simple this Christmas Eve. Rather than the Mexican Feast, we served penne pasta with meat sauce and cheesy garlic toast. On one hand, I thought it was great as I enjoyed not being exhausted from prepping and cooking all day, therefore being able to enjoy the family and gifts so much more! But on the other hand, it just didn't seem like a Rios Christmas Eve. We ALL really missed our traditional meal.
The most delicious, moist cake ever! Thanks to our friends at Southern Granite for the gift from Wright's Gourmet House! This banana walnut piece of heaven, covered in cream cheese frosting is the BOMB! (Actually it's called the Hawaiian Princess Cake!)
