the tradition: instead of turkey, the Harms family always has a taco supper on Christmas Eve! yummmm. how lucky that i married into this deliciousness. if you came to the Harms Farm on Christmas Eve, you would see the kitchen island covered with heaping bowls of all the taco fillings of your dreams, homemade guacamole, cilantro and limes, plenty of chips and fresh salsa, and lots of sliced fruit. you'd also see all 32 of us snaking our way around it, piling our plates high and sampling the salsa as we go.

we love to do the chicken for our Christmas tacos in Heidi's chipotle marinade. (have you ordered her soap yet?) :) if you're a Chipotle fan (who isn't?), you will love this concoction.


feliz navidad!
i cannot wait to eat tacos.

We do chili for Christmas Eve. Well, and oyster stew, but those of us under the age of 40 skip right over that!
