It's week 4 over at Red's Writing 12 Weeks of Christmas and it's all about the food!
In a previous post on traditions I shared that we do Mexican type appetizers on Christmas Eve with chips and queso, taquitos, and build your own tacos. Man now my stomach is growling.
On Christmas Day we do the traditional meal, Turkey, Ham, Dressing, Sweet Potato Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Corn Casserole, Mac and Cheese, Cranberry Sauce, Cranberry relish, Fruit Salad, Rolls, Green Bean Casserole, and so many desserts you'll gain 5 pounds just looking at them.
But my thing is doing the turkey. I do Kidd Kraddick's Brown Bag Turkey, it is the juiciest most tender, wonderful turkey ever. Oh and my little secret.....cook the turkey breast side down so the juices run into the meat. This happened by accident my 1st year doing the turkey, I cooked it upside down by accident and cried when I realized what I had done until we cut into it and tasted it and man oh man, YUM-O.
So what are your Christmas Foods and recipes?
