F2: Holiday Treats

Welcome again to Friday's Feast. Today I'll be talking about holiday treats.

If you don't know what Friday's Feast is all about, please read the Friday's Feast page for a more detailed explanation. If you want to join in on the feast— be sure to leave a comment and include the URL to your post so I and others can know of your contribution. Also, if you want to see a particular topic— feel free to suggest it as well (I'm always looking for new inspirations).

Participants in this weeks Feast are as follows:

There is something about the holidays that makes us want to eat. Perhaps it is the fact that it is cold around here, and eating keeps us warm. Perhaps it's a continuation of all of those Harvest Holidays because we never know what to do with all of those leftovers. All the same… just around this time of year I start seeing all of the food catalogs in our mailbox which in turn makes me drool.

I know that I love to entertain, and if money were no object I would be ordering all of those great hams and roasts to serve at our next gathering. I see things like caviar, and other exotic foods laid out on the page in such an appetizing way that I can just picture our spread looking just as inviting.

Then you have those candy fundraiser catalogs that the kids bring home from school. All those great candies that you remember as a child… you just cannot resist. Then there are those that also have sausages and cheese. I don't know about you, but nothing says the holidays like a good summer-sausage.

How about you… What foods say the holidays to you?

Since Christmas is just around the corner, I thought I would dedicate the entire month of December to it. Here are some possible topics that can whet your appetite:

  • Do you have any special meals that you make for Christmas?
  • Are there any food items that you only get around Christmas?
  • What is fruitcake anyway?
  • You can't have Christmas without cookies…

So… if you have anything that relates to this topic, be sure to leave a comment and include the URL so I can include you in the next weeks feast. Even if you have already posted on this topic in the past— your links are always welcome.

i love the fact that during the holidays, there is no moral judgment about eating. we eat in celebration, thankful for our abundant blessings. we save the regret for january.

"pie" says holidays to me. i don't eat it year round... really only during the holidays.

and i am with you... if money were no object, i would have a big buffet with a big rack of lamb, and maybe some port with cheese and fruit, topped off with hot buttered rum.

I love all the terrific food during the Holidays. It's probably the only thing I'm not a Scrooge about

Snicker-doodles? did someone say Snicker-doodles??

I love that the holidays are a No Holds Barred for food and inhibition about food. I would say that brisket, lamb, prime rib, all the decadent, OMG foods scream the holidays. Lots of rich cheeses, chocolates, OH MY...I need help now! LOL

This is not so much a food treat as a holiday decorating treat. Will that work?
