Today we're talking our fave Holiday Meal....which for me translates into a couple of things, but the overly factor is that, in order for it to be deemed my favourite, it must involve family.
Anytime I think of Christmas or any big family gathering, I can taste the meals that my Grandmothers so diligently prepared. Every Christmas I try to re-create one of those recipes so I can bring back the tastes to match the wonderful memories that they instilled.
One of my current projects is scanning/recreating this cookbook that belonged to my late Grandma Diehl. It's full of her penmanship and smudges and stains and will be, I'm sure, a prized possession in the kitchens of the big family she loved so much.
Here are a couple pictures of some of my favourite Grandma Diehl Christmas recipes.
My Grandma Park also made us all a binder one Christmas that has all her favourite recipes. Here are a couple things that she always makes for Christmas, that I must make this year!
The marshmallow balls are the ultimate treat for me and I'm pretty sure my Dad has ate them all, so I'm going to have to make a double batch!
Tonight is Dan's Cmas party....I like having a new dress/outfit for this party as it's the only time that I really get dressed up.Here are some past looks (I thought I had more...I guess I don't) :
|Our first year- 2003|
|Last year 2013|
This year I went back and forth between these two dresses.....come back Monday to see what I picked and how it looked!
Have a great weekend!
