Blog Party: Day 4

Today it is all about food! Here in our family, immediate and extended, we are all about food.
Quick note, thank you Amanda, I hope you don't mind that I used the button you had on your page for this post. I'm not sure where you found it, but I couldn't get the one from Momdot to work on my post :(.

My favorite Holiday recipe...hmm this is a tough one. My favorite, as in I enjoy eating it, would have to be the cranberry sauce that my mom makes. Unfortunately I do not have the recipe, but I know there are cranberries, apples and oranges involved. I don't know, I think I like it that much more because we only have it one time of year!
My favorite traditional recipe, that I actually do not like the taste of at all, is the "orange stuff". My grandma (on my mom's side), and my grandma's mother had been making this for as long as I have been around, possibly longer. My grandma and only one of my aunts are the only ones who ever eat it. My grandma has since passed, but it is still made every Thanksgiving for just my aunt, or if anything to honor my grandma :)

We usually celebrate Thanksgiving at a couple different places, so the setting of the table is different everywhere! It is the most elaborate when we go down to my grandpa and grandma's (on my dad's side) home. There are anywhere from 25 to 35 people there. My grandma has the granddaughters shine her fine silver while she takes care of the rest. She does place card seating and uses her fine china.

No disasters so far to date :) which is good I suppose! Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself!

I was going to say the same as 3 kids and us, I love nicknamed foods. We have a thing we call crunchy bread. It's just rye bread toasted from our local bakery. I'd love to know more about the orange stuff! Here's My Day 4!

I'm not big on cranberry sauce but my husband asked me to get some this year so I guess I will
