Not a bad choice for Christmas in light of the unwrapping. 😉

Ok, I’ll play! The children’s DVDs make it totally worth it.

My favorite Christmas treat is chocolate covered cherries. Every year my family gets together with my parents and Peter, my mom, and I spend an afternoon making dozens and dozens of chocolate covered cherries by hand. We bring a few home to sample while we wait for Christmas to finally arrive. That’s when we get to eat the rest–and get really sick from all the sugar.

Cherries are really in close competition with pickled herring as my favorite Christmas treat, but we sometimes have pickled herring at Thanksgiving, too. The chocolate covered cherries are strictly for Christmas and got to be Top Pick.

That’s a hard choice, to find a favorite food.
In the end, I must say it is chicken and dumplings.
Mmmmmmm, mmmmmmmmmmm! That chicken all boiled to tender goodness and deboned. The dough rolled out, cut into strips and dropped into the hot chicken broth with the deboned chicken, then ladled out into a bowl to be eaten with gusto and the last juices sopped up with a hot roll!
Opsithast! I’ve drooled on my keyboard and mssdedsd it llsla uppu?!

As long as I can remember, I have had Swedish meatballs and Swedish sausage on Christmas Eve. You can’t just have one of them, you have to have both!
It started at my Grandma’s house, with all my dad’s clan and later morphed to having it at my mom and dad’s. We will be having tomorrow night at my mom’s. It’s kinda sad that the group is getting smaller, but Christmas eve would not be the same if we didn’t eat this wonderful items.
