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 ;)

OH, and don't forget to linkup your favorite meal posts below. xo


  1. For some reason, I really want cookies and fruit salad right now! Thanks for sharing. :)

  2. Cookie exchanges are fun - you get a variety for your guests! I agree - I find the ones I really like and those all get eaten.

  3. I was supposed to do a cookie exchange with my friends this Monday and an ice storm came in and we had to cancel! We were going to craft, too! I was so bummed! Wah! I usually make a different cookie every week leading up to Christmas... this week I'm making no bake cookies, which I love. YUM! My husband also makes THE best cinnamon rolls from scratch on Christmas morning. Double YUM!

    1. mmmmmm I LOVE cinnamon rolls!! delish
      Hopefully you can still do your exchange and craft ;)

  4. It's all about the cookies for me too this time of year!

  5. I think I could live on appetizers, chocolate and cookies. Sounds like a perfect diet to me.

  6. I also could live on appetizers...the best!

  7. It's funny because I don't think of an entree or main dish for the holidays...it's all about apps, buffets, and grazing. And cookies, chocolate, & eggnog! I need to find more friends who participate in a cookie exchange! Happy Holidays, Jen


Love hearing from you!
