  1. #1 Christmas Food: Best and Worst. 
    What is the best thing you usually eat on Christmas? What is the worst thing you expect to confront?

    The best thing for me is something called Jansson's Frestelse (Jansson's Temptation). This involves potatoes, fish, onions, and cream. It's hard to describe but excellent to eat. We Americanize it with finely diced and parboiled green and red peppers.

    The worst thing is eggnog. For some reason, I am just not a fan unless an alarming amount of alcohol has been added. I like eggs, milk, spices, etc. but not eggnog.

    It is like drinking mayonnaise!

    Best? Hands down my mother's dressing. No one else's has come close.


    Worst?? My mother's sister's dressing. Saltier than hell - and soupy.

    When I was a kid I liked eggnog, but now I won't drink it. I will, however, put it on Cheerios New Years Day.

    The best thing is the surprise. I have a neighbor who sneaks over on Christmas morning and puts a bag of goodies on my doorknob. Usually it's cookies that are burnt a little and crispy which is the way I like them. I can't make my own cookies, because they burn my mouth.

    I get to roast a turkey properly this weekend. I am obligated to be subjected to the abomination my MIL creates at Thanksgiving in her nefarious kitchen. Did you ever see the turkey scene on National Lapoon's Christmas Vacation? That bird looked moist and tasty compared to the dessicated mummy we get at the pilgrim feast.

    I can roast a turkey. Oh yes. And CS while you are watching your kin women dress I'll be making stuffing you'd kill for. :p
