25 Days of Christmas #20: Favorite Christmas Meal


You know, it’s been several years since we’ve had a traditional Christmas dinner. My favorite meal has to include a turducken (shush, I don’t care what you say, I’m weird. :P), broccoli, cheese and rice casserole, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, fruit salad… yeah, I don’t know. I like a lot of Christmas foods. My favorite thing at Christmas time was always my aunt’s sugar cookies. I don’t know what she does with them, but even now, my mouth is watering at the thought of them. Perhaps I’ll try to get the recipe so I can make it myself this year?

What’s your favorite Christmas meal?

  1. Honestly, I can’t remember the last time I had a Christmas dinner. We used to celebrate with my paternal side of the family on Christmas Eve and it was always snack food. My grandparents had 9 kids and most of my aunts and uncles have 3 kids so there’s A LOT OF US in one house. Since my nephew passed away two years ago in on the job accident, we haven’t gotten together. This year, we are celebrating Christmas Eve with a dinner at my sister’s house. So this will be a bittersweet Christmas Eve………

    • I’m sorry to hear about your family’s loss. My fondest memories come from my childhood. Going to my great grandmother’s farm and spending the night watching everyone work together to get dinner ready. She passed away two years ago and it’s been almost two decades since I have been back to that farm. The holidays are always tough when you’ve lost a loved one.

      • So very true. My nephew got engaged on Christmas Eve and it was the last time I saw him before he died. So Christmas Eve is a difficult day.

      • Well I hope you having your family around will help all of you continue to move towards finding some peace during the holidays. It’ll never go away, but at least you all have one another and can remember him fondly.

  2. We usually have a big Christmas breakfast now instead of a traditional dinner like I had as a kid. I love Nueske’s corned beef hash and fried eggs. Weird choice for Christmas I guess, but it is good!
