A break from holiday stress -- what's your favorite holiday meal or treat?”

  • My favorite... the leftovers! I make turkey tortilla soup with a recipe I got from my father-in-law years ago.
    If you want to give it a try...

  • Nataly, that sounds delicious! I assume the lamb stays moist that way?

    My favorite treat this time of year (and everytime of year, quite frankly) is alfredo with chicken, over a bed of any kind of pasta. YUM.

  • Daisy - that sounds soooo great! We've made a tradition out of cooking lamb with pomegranate sauce. It's Nigella's recipe that I found in the NY Times a while back. The lamb is cooked overnight on low heat and you wake up to this awesome and warm smell. We do this the day before New Years.

  • I get my shopping done early. (THERE's a treat, all by itself.) This means that I can go to a mall and just enjoy the busy-ness without feeling any of the panic, no need to line up, no pressure. I like the lights, I like the crowds, I like the music, I like the energy.

    When I've spent a while enjoying the holiday bustle, I retreat to a coffee shop, where unburdened by a million bags and parcels, I can sit and sip my decaf skinny latte, maybe read, maybe just watch the people some more, enjoying the feeling of being alone in the crowd.

  • Every Christmas we have a standing rib roast with mushrooms and au jus (even if we cant afford it) we seem to always find a way! with home made mashed potatoes, Galicy Green Beans, Croisants, and deviled eggs. Oh and on Christmas eve we make Christmas cookies and decorate them and save a couple for Santa.

  • Cinnamon rolls and coffee on Christmas morning! We've made that a tradition. The rolls make the house smell good while they're baking, and they're easy to eat while unwrapping presents.

  • Actually this year we had the most fantastic thanksgiving dinner at our friend's house! It was so tasty... I would have that same meal on Christmas/New Years :)
