Anyone have any specific 'food traditions'? I have one! Whenever we come in from SHOVELING SNOW (in the wintertime obviously!) we always have Hot Chocolate w/mini marshmallows afterwards. Reminds me, we gotta go buy some more Hot Chocolate and bags of Mini Marshmallows this weekend!! Do ya'll have any food traditions?!!
At Christmas, Mama would make what we called an Icebox Fruitcake. It was made with crushed graham crackers, raisins, chopped pecans, coconut, chopped maraschino cherries and sweetened condensed milk. All mixed together and then pressed into a 9x13 dish lined with wax paper.
I ate it, of course, but it wasn't my favorite. My brother loves it however, and he still makes them at Christmas. In fact, for the last several years before Mama died, he'd go over to her house and make one for her too, as she couldn't do it any more.This message has been edited.

My ancestors were Scandinavian and there were many ethnic foods that were served only at Christmas and I grew up with those traditional foods. Lutefisk, lefse, Julekake, rollepolse, meatballs, sweet cream rømmegrøt, and of course lots of cookies! Our family traditions have changed and I now make tortiere for Christmas Eve dinner.
Many Friday evenings we've had appies and drinks for dinner. Easy to make at the end of a work week.

Perogies are not hard to make, but I have also bought pre-made, frozen ones that were really pretty good. They were potato and cheese filled as I recall, (thawed, pan fried in a little butter and served with sour cream as a garnish)
