Going down memory lane ....
My two favorite Christmas food traditions -
Butter cake - we always had a brunch the Sunday before Christmas at Grandmom's. And she always served butter cake. Probably about 2500 calories but ohhhh soooo good. I just found out that my client, Oteri's Bakery in Olney, makes one. I am putting in my order for next week. How many calories is it when you eat the entire thing by yourself?
Egg Nog - my dad made the best! Don't know the recipe but I know there was quite a bit of alcohol in it. And NO virgin nog for the kids - we were allowed to have the real stuff with the adults!
One other memory - we always had Cherries Jubilee for dessert on Christmas Day. Of course, igniting it was half the fun and any "issues" with getting a flame were solved by pouring more booze on top! The next morning - my mother walked out to the kitchen and found my grandfather drinking the left over "juice"!
Merry Christmas everyone!
