Day 2: Two foods I can’t get through Christmas without

2 foods you can’t get through Christmas without

Maybe I should have put this one nearer the end. It was hard for me to narrow down just two foods.

The first is my mom’s block dressing. A friend of my sister’s gave it the title block dressing because well it’s fixed in a square pan and it’s cut into squares. I don’t know what my mother does to it. If she sticks her big toe in it or her whole foot, but it’s absolutely¬†scrumdiddlyumptious.

The second is a toss up. It would be either my father’s fried turkey or my aunt’s potato salad. Again, I don’t know what they do to it to make it so good but I can never get enough it.

Oh crap, I forgot about my grandmothers pineapple pound cake.

I told you this was hard.

I’m so glad we have good cooks in the family because I don’t particularly care for it; and thank goodness my specialty is never on the menu – pork chops. Hmmm. If I had to cook a holiday meal what would be on the menu?

  • Pork Chops (fried just to be crunchy and then finished off in the oven)
  • Homemade apple sauce
  • Agave roasted brussel sprouts
  • My mom’s block dressing
  • Tea

Well, now that I’m all hungry and have a hankerin’ for block dressing, fried turkey, potato salad, pineapple puns cake and more.

Oh well another week and I’ll have it all and then some, but for now I’ll have to settle for two little scrawny baked chicken wings, brussel sprouts and rice for dinner.

But if I’m going along those lines and I tell you the truth – yes, I want all of those things and I could Continue reading
