The 12 Days of an Italian Foodie Christmas



The 12 Days of an Italian Foodie Christmas

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
12 scampis scampering
11 scungillis congealing
10 olives oiling
9 rapinis rapping
8 pignolis pining
7 feasts of fishes
6 yeasts-a-proofing
5 golden figs
4 squalling squids
3 frenched hens
2 curdled doves
and Mario Batali in a pine tree.

Merry Christmas, friends! May your days be merry and bright!
Claudia
