Advent Calendar Memories – Holiday Foods

Did your family or ancestors serve traditional dishes for the holidays? Was there one dish that was unusual?

Our traditional Christmas dinner now is probably a bit different from those of days gone by or even some of the more traditional foods.  Each year we order racks of barbecue ribs from Dankin Farms and grill them on the grill.  We serve this along with my “world-famous” (just ask anyone in my family!) potato salad, olives, rolls and pies for dessert!  For Christmas breakfast we always serve pecan coffee cake and we must have those Cutie clementine oranges!  The oranges date back to when I was younger and my parents always found tangerines or oranges each year.  There was always one at the bottom of our stocking from Santa…along with fudge and divinity candy that my mom must have stayed up half the night to make!
