5 Traditional Celebration Foods

Dr Tanya is asking us for five traditional celebration foods this week.

After a monthโ€™s absence, 5things Tuesday returns today with a fun topic. Today we’re asked to list five of our favourite celebration foods. Cake, cake, cake, cake and cake!
This week is a celebratory week as a friend was 80 on Sunday, it was our wedding anniversary yesterday, and my birthday tomorrow.
Dr T asked for traditional food though, so if I think of Christmas, we have
turkey, stuffing, Christmas Pudding, Mince Pies and CAKE!

When I catered for my parents Coral Wedding Anniversary, I concentrated on finger food and Mum’s favourite of prawn vol au vents, sausage rolls, quiche, a selection of sandwiches (including boiled eggs) and CAKE….. I made it and my boss iced it for me.

Last year, I bought a selection of cakes and went round the estate with a tray to celebrate.

This year I’ve bought a birthday cake and will take pieces round to our friends.
I was going to make a cheesecake again but this week has seen us do nothing but eat the wrong stuff so I held off.

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.

    Happy Birthday and many more!! Do you like cake?? (hehe) I wish I could invite you over for a piece of my deluxe pineapple pecan cake – it could change your life!!

  9. Some weeks are like that. In my family December has lots of birthdays and anniversaries so we have a lot of cake too.
    I personally don’t need to be celebrating to have cake . I love it so much. Alas, like most humans I have to watch my weight.
    What are your favourite cakes though, or have we done that already for 5thinhs.
    BTW , I love Quiche too.
