Day 3 challenge request; Favourite Christmas food or recipe.
I have to say my favourite food is the traditional Christmas dinner. I love turkey! My sister in-law makes very yummy Christmas cookies and homemade chocolates. My tummy says very yummy indeed!
Favourite recipe: My Mom always made her home-made version of “bits and bites” which is a snack mixture of pretzels, nuts, Shreddies, Cheerios and pretty much anything you want to add to it. She’d put a little salt and bake the whole thing in the oven. It was one of those addictive snacks like you know how you can’t put the chip bag away after just one chip (I can’t anyways, not sure about the rest of you). My Mom also made gingerbread. Mmm, warm a piece of that and put a little butter on it and that is heaven on earth in your mouth! My Dad was a pastry chef so he made wonderful Christmas treats; cookies, home-made peppermint paddies, fruit cake, rum cake.
A new traditional recipe I’ve taken over from my now deceased mother in-law is making Christmas morning coffee cake. You mix it the night before so you can pop it in the oven Christmas morning. I started doing this for my husband when we got married so he would have a bit of his family tradition in our new home together.
