Tasty-Treat Meals for the Year
Our family has had this tradition for many years. We have special meals that we serve one food, often in season, usually connected with a holiday or time of year. It is fun and a treat to focus on one food and one food only.
January Hot cocoa and popcorn night, usually after a day of sledding. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
February Is the best month for this theme:
On February 12 there is Lincoln’s Birthday and we serve cake shaped like a log frosted with a special chocolate butter cream frosting. These were sold in every bakery during my childhood.
On the February 14th Valentine's Day we serve a big heart-shaped strawberry shortcake to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Bring your cards to exchange too.
On February 22 Washington’s Birthday supper is, of course, a hot homemade cherry pie with ice cream. Yum!
March Corned beef and cabbage on the 17th. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
April A mixed Berry Fool on the first day of the month. A Fool is made by folding pureed fruit into custard or homemade whipped cream. An April Fool’s Day Treat that is no trick.
May Fresh baby greens salad bar. Big bowl with lots of dressings and add-in ingredients on the side so everyone can have a custom salad.
June Asparagus and hollandaise sauce, as much as everyone can eat.
July Fresh peas and butter, BBQ’d chicken always welcome. Independence Day Treat!
August Corn on the cob night. Piled high and steaming with lots of butter.
September Gingerbread Night. Great piping hot gingerbread and butter. Served with milk. Tasty!
October Homemade apple pie night! Need I say more?
November Pumpkin pie night. Squash pies too! Not just for Thanksgiving Day.
December Christmas cookies and milk night. We can have Santa’s Christmas Eve meal as we listen to carols and read the Christmas Story.
Enjoy the New Year. Making family traditions is one great way to make wonderful memories.
