With my brain obsessed with the gigantic meal I have to prepare tomorrow, it got me to wondering…
What food(s) make the holidays for you?
For me, ham and scalloped potatoes are Christmas and Easter. Turkey is (of course) Thanksgiving but in addition to that we usually have:
home-made turkey gravy
green beans (used to be casserole but nobody really liked it so we just make regular ones now)
macaroni & cheese (for the kids and perhaps, just a little, for me too)
shell salad (Hubby LOVES it)
deviled eggs (we have these on every holiday but I guess deviled eggs could be weird for Easter)
and loads of desserts including brownies, broken-glass cake, better-than-sex cake, etc.
Funny, we don’t have pumpkin pie, sweet potato casserole, or cranberry sauce as most people do for Thanksgiving. I don’t think anybody in my family likes any of that.
I’m really hungry now.
By the way – I’m off from work until Monday so I’ll try to post this weekend if I get the chance. otherwise, Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and a delightful start to the Holidays!!!
