Talking Got To Have It For The Holidays

The holidays will soon be upon us. What are some of your favorite holiday dishes?? What dish do you just have to have every holiday?



I love me some homemade mac and cheese but what I have to have every holiday Thanksgiving and Christmas is dressing and cranberry sauce. If I don't get anything else I'm content with that.

Whole berry cranberry sauce and Gulliver's Corn. Those will do it for me.

My mom use to make the best. Even though she has told me how she makes it, it's not the same. But it's good enough, lol nobody complains. My mom doesn't do all that cooking any more so I have to make do.....

For Christmas, I have to have pickled herring, gravlox, Janssen's Temptation, and Krumkake. If I had to give up two, I'd be happy with the "white" food--Janssen's Temptation and Krumkake. Thanksgiving--wild rice stuffing and homemade turkey gravy.

Besides turkey, which I rarely have outside of Thanksgiving (although I should!), I think it is less about any particular dish, than it is about simply having EVERYTHING at once! My plate on Thanksgiving looks like a Picasso painting, one or two spoonfuls of 13 different things, lol. I think that it is just the sheer decadence of so many fantastic things all on one table that makes this such a special day. That being said, I love cranberry sauce and corn pudding, two things I only eat on Thanksgiving.

Scalloped corn, mashed potatoes, my own stuffing (traditional bread cubes with lotsa onions, celery, broth, aromatics, and butter!). Cranberry sauce. Wild rice with mushrooms.

SIL, a wonderful Southern cook, makes cornbread stuffing, for which I've never developed a taste. Her pecan pie, however, has no equal.

Thats how I make my stuffing/dressing also and I can't stand corn bread stuffing either (the texture is mushy and unpleasant to me). I also like wild rice but the family isn't that fond of it so I make it the next day mostly for me with turkey gravy on it. YUM
