Last year we discovered the joys and pains of the Italian Seven Fishes tradition.  My family and the Vosburgs (not an Italian among us) collaborated to prepare and consume a seven-course seafood feast, until my belly ached and I felt somewhat like a sea creature myself – perhaps a cross between a whale and a pufferfish.

            This Christmas Eve was equally painful in the gastrointestinal department, without the tasty precursor; a nasty stomach flu left me writhing under the bedsheets like I’d swallowed a 100-barbed hook. So we postponed our encore 2012 Seven Fishes dinner until Dec. 26 – and, despite my tender innards, we pulled it off in grand style. Learning from the past, we did the Prius version of Seven Fishes feasting: light, savvy and efficient.
