Tradition is best celebrated in special dates like Christmas, where the table is filled with love and food. In Portugal, where I am from, Christmas is a moment to cook our best and most traditional recipes. Besides codfish, because there isn’t a Portuguese table at Christmas without codfish, there are other dishes that also celebrate the Portuguese culture. One of them is Lagareiro Octopus, an oven dish served with roasted potatoes and a very tender octopus. In this article I bring you this recipe and also another one, which is my favourite Portuguese delicacy for Christmas, Pumpkin Cakes. Merry Christmas and Bon Appetit!

I chose some dresses for this Holiday Season for every budget that can make the task of finding the perfect dress easier.
