Favorite Holiday Eats
This is a toughie for me. I like food. I like food A LOT.
I'm going to keep this somewhat holiday focused and I will tell you, that one of the many reasons I love the Christmas season is the food. Oh the food.
It's not just Christmas dinner, which is typically some kind of turkey and all the fixings. I also love party food. You know, those uber healthy appetizer plates. Seriously. It's very highly unlikely that I will escape this holiday season without putting on a few pounds.
Then there's the cookies. Cookies and cookies and more cookies. I am once again participating in a cookie-exchange (basically, you bake a ton of cookies and then trade with friends so you all go home with a bunch of different kinds of cookies). Doesn't that sound lovely? Ya, in theory, but typically what happens is I get the cookies, home, figure out which ones I really like, eat them all and then the rest sit until I can pawn them off on relatives. For real though, it's a lot of work, but there's something to be said for having a cookie tray ready at moments notice for unexpected guests (that is, assuming you haven't eaten them all).
Fruit salad. I'm not sure why, but this has always been a tradition on Christmas morning. Regular breakfast stuff too (eggs, bacon etc) but there has to be fruit salad. Now I want fruit salad.
Chocolate. Well it's pretty much bloody everywhere so it's inevitable that I'm going to eat my body weight in chocolate this season. Good thing I really like chocolate.
Well, I've gone and made myself hungry so you can tell me what you LOVE to eat during the holidays, while I go and make myself a snack ;)
