favourite holiday food. Christmas crack, from MistressJennies recipe on herehttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=283916.0
it is awesome!
and for the last few years we have always brined our turkey. It makes such a difference.
DD and I have decided that we are going to do a trial christmas dinner this year, just because we like it so much
We used to do a potluck for our big gathering with friends - then about 15 years ago I decided to try a brined BBQ turkey and since then I have not been allowed to make anything else - unless I make it AS WELL as the brined turkey - it is delicious! Too bad the drippings are too salty for gravy though. But then again, it is generally so moist, that gravy isn't needed. I love brining the bird!
I love food around that season in general, but I don't have one favourite thing. I love the bits of candy cane, I love MIL's crab dip, I love leftover cranberry sauce with ice cream... I love classic cranberry steamed pudding, with the warm butter sauce (but no one else does so I don't often make it). I love Andes mints (they make me think Christmas - from a Christmas memory that actually shows me up as the bratty little sister).
