Ten Things I Love to Eat/Drink at the Holidays
1. Rocky Road Candy--from Mom's Betty Crocker cookbook, except we use walnuts instead of the listed peanuts
2. Fudge--this is another recipe from that same cookbook
3. Mom's punch--it has cranberry juice and lemonade and lemon/lime soda, and other things I do not know
4. Buckeyes--the rolling and dipping of buckeyes feels like it takes forever, so we often doe this as a group. My stepdad has a different recipe that he makes, but we like ours with the crushed Rice Krispies
5. Sugar Cookies--these have the colored sugar on top. You place the ball of dough on the baking sheet, dip the flat bottom of a glass in the colored sugar, and then gently smoosh the dough.
6. Peanut Brittle--I experiment with finding just the right peanuts, as there is plenty of feedback on which are the peanuts to use.
7. Cinnamon Rolls--whether homemade, or from a can, these disappear quickly soon after they are out of the oven
8. Hot Cocoa--It is cooked on the stove, very tasty, and is great with our with out marshmallows or whipped cream.
9. Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, & Gravy--Of course, this is good any time of year, but it helps set a festive, family-together scene.
10. Oranges, Cranberries, Pears, Grapefuit--These cool, light, refreshing treats are a special treat.
