Prompt: December 2
Did your family or ancestors serve traditional dishes for the holidays? Was there one dish that was unusual?
We were (and still are) a turkey-at-Christmas family. The accompanying dishes are pretty much standard fare: mashed potatoes, green beans...etc.
One dish that's somewhat unique to my family is creamed onions. My grandma always made creamed pearl onions and now her kids do, too. I always think of her when I have them every Christmas.
I also have to mention my aunt's Christmas tree frosted sugar cookies. I'm not just saying that because I know she'll read this. They're really good, and IF she happened to make them again this year, that would be great. (hint hint)
