Christmas at Heloisa December 24 2004
The dinner follows a Brazilian tradition of having the celebration on Christmas Eve. Typically the celebration is at mid-night when everyone hugs, wishing Merry Xmas and the chow down for dinner.
Heloisa served a wonder plate of fresh fruit as the temperature hovered near 25 degrees outside.
The fresh Strawberries were Driscoll brand. They were the sweetest commercially grown berries that I have ever had. So good, that I remember them over 10 years later as I update this page
I am sure that the rest of the dinner was very good. Heloisa is a terrific cook. But in 2015, I can only remember the straw berries. The ultimate and sweetest strawberries are the wild ones but these Christmas strawberries rival the wild ones
Xmas, Christmas, dinner, Eve, 2004, Heloisa, Olga, Toby, Helton, strawberries, holiday.
