You had to know it was coming--today is all about how thankful I am for food! I really love food- it's quite amazing any day, and holiday food has always been a special way to bring my family together. I've lived away from home for four years now, but I've been able to visit for at least one holiday each year, so my mom has kindly saved all of her best foods for my visits. This is the first year I'm doing both Christmas and Thanksgiving away from my family (of course I'm very excited for my first Christmas with My Main Man and his family), which makes me especially thankful for the special food my mom makes for the holidays.
Here are some of my favorite traditional holiday foods in my family.
|Twice-Baked Potatoes, Shrimp and Cocktail Sauce, Green Bean Casserold, Baby Quiche, Rhodes Rolls, Eggnog with Nutmeg, Stuffed Mushroom Caps, Sweet Potato Pie, Pumpkin Pie|
