See that expression on Writer-Sons' face? It totally matches mine when I think about my mom's sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top! I know, some of you think that is a disgusting idea, but, Oh man is it yummy! I believe that may be the main reason my guys want to spend holidays at Grandmas house, she cooks. I do not.
Now you know why my kitchen looked so clean & neat in this recent post! I have always hated cooking, so now that our sons take care of themselves, my hubs & I get a big lunch out somewhere because we work together & then just snack at night. I love being free to do stuff like that any way we want to, one of the advantages of our age I guess!
Anyway, sweet potatoes are one of my favorite holiday foods. My moms' Cinnamon rolls & fudge are the best I have ever tasted too. Can you tell I have a bit of a sweet tooth? When I was a little girl my mom made her fudge several weeks before Christmas, wrapped it in foil & hid it in a closet so it would be ready for Christmas Day. I accidentally found the hidden treasure one year & secretly ate a few pieces each day until she opened it up on Christmas Eve to find an empty container! Not a happy holiday for me, my punishment was to eat nothing sweet on Christmas Day! Torture!
Since I am not much of a cook, my contribution to family or friends gatherings is always the dinner rolls or something easy like jello. Early tomorrow morning I'm headed to the grocery store for my jello recipe ingredients. I make this wonderfully sweet concoction of raspberry jello, raspberries, pineapple, bananas & sour cream that is as good as dessert!
This Thanksgiving we will be joining some good friends of ours because all my family is out of state & we aren't traveling this year. So the marshmallow-y sweet potatoes will have to wait another year. What are some of your favorite holiday foods?
