The Question

One thing we all seem to do a lot of during the holidays is eat. But depending on personal tastes, where we’re from, family traditions, and possibly other factors, exactly what that food looks like, and which parts are our favorites can be varied. So whether you’re a pumpkin pie fan, simply crazy for green bean casserole, or all about the honey-glazed ham, please let us know…

What was your favorite holiday treat growing up, and has that changed over the years, or is it still your top choice for holiday eating?

I have always had a sweet tooth, and that has not changed at all, type 2 diabetes or not.
As kids, our stockings would include sugar mice, candy, and chocolate.
Those mice seemed pretty big, but then we had little hands, so I suppose it was a case of perspective. The ones available today, IF you can find them, are tiny, but taste as good as I remember.

Holiday treats are not just for the holidays though, and I remember cinder toffee, chocolate covered or not, chocolate brazils, turkish delight (again chocolate covered or not, you might notice a theme here), and of course at Christmas, the chocolate Santa.
When Hubby and I first got together, one of my gifts to him that first Christmas was a chocolate Santa. It’s become our own tradition, and every year, I will get him one……….. the size just varies.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
