Christmas Eve

This is our first Christmas Eve since Babchi died, with the celebration now at our house. The family did the best that they could with her traditional menu and no recipes...

Babchi's granddaughter did a great job recreating the fish. Babchi's son got the pierogi, stuffed cabbage, sauerkraut stew,and beets from Halinka Polish Deli on Route 206, while her daughter picked up a babka from a shop in Manville.

Babchi's great-grandsons had been told that Santa left some presents for them. It wasn't Christmas yet, so when the question came up about Santa delivering the presents early...well, the boys came up with their own explanation.

"Santa delivers the presents first at the houses of old people."
