Weekly Poll: Nom For The Holidays

Happy Wednesday, everybody! Hope you're having fun doing whatever it is that you normally do.

This week's question was inspired by my dad, who has called me not once but three times this week to ask what my plans are over Christmas. Advance planning, much? The answer is always the same: Stay in NYC (holiday travel is evil) and make a massive meal. In past years we've gone to my sister's house for Thanksgiving (she lives in a suburb of NYC), but she won't be hosting this year, so it looks like we've got two excuses to cook a massive holiday meal this year. Chomp! Which got me wondering ....

What's your favorite holiday-related food or dish? It doesn't have to be something served at Thanksgiving or Christmas, any holiday counts!

When I was a kid potato latkes at Hanukkah were the clear winner. If you've never had a latke, it's basically a shredded potato pancake made with egg and sometimes other stuff. Hash browns elite! As an adult I've really come to appreciate the merits of homemade cranberry sauce. For the past couple years I've even stocked up on extra cranberries around this time of year so I could freeze them and eat them year-round. (Writing that makes me sound really really cool, I realize.)

How about you? Which celebratory noms are your favorites?


  1. Thanksgiving my fav is pumpkin pie and stringbean casserole, for christmas it is actually potato pancakes (boxed kind) that my mom makes every xmas morning. She has been doing it since I was a child and was a tradition passed on from her mother.

  2. Yum! I love pumpkin pie too. We actually made it at Christmas the past couple years since we weren't cooking our own Thanksgiving dinner - it's pretty easy so my BF makes it! The first year he forgot to put sugar in though so it tasted ... interesting, lol.

  3. hahah EW I can imagine

  4. Mashed potatoes with gravy are a must for me for any holiday meal!

  5. Yum! I wouldn't mind some mashed potatoes right now ... Halloween's a holiday, right? Perfect excuse!

  6. It's hard for me to choose, but I think creamed onions are my favorite.

  7. You know, I don't think I've ever had creamed onions. Had to google it to picture what they would look like. I bet my BF would go insane for those!
