Thanksgiving is still visible in the rear-view mirror, and food should be the further thought from our minds. In my crazy mind, the next logical subject to discuss is food. So, without further adieu, here is my December 2nd favorite:
What is my favorite holiday food? My answer cannot be said in a simplistic manner, the reason being that my family is not super traditional. My favorite main course food is steak; turkey is a close 2nd. My dad has always grilled steaks for holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, but here is the kicker: The accompanying main course is always pizza. How did that happen? The “grown-up” food did not always satisfy the taste buds of me and my younger brother, and the tradition remained, even as we got older. I will take this opportunity to mention that my family now eats turkey for Thanksgiving. My favorite side dish is green bean casserole; baked macaroni & cheese is a close 2nd. Green bean casserole is always my responsibility to cook therefore I might be slightly bias. I find it delicious regardless of who makes it, but I know deep down inside that my satisfaction is based primarily on pride in my successful cooking efforts. Now that I have finished my spiel, what is your favorite holiday food?
Chanukah sameach, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!
