I love holiday food. Like the kind you only eat during that particular holiday. I tend to cook whichever traditional food sounds the best to me at the time, but I do always make certain things no matter what, like the Swedish braid bread every Christmas. We usually have black-eyed peas New Years day, but I actually don't really dig it too much. This is odd because I love all beans a ridiculous amount, even lima beans, but black eyed peas are my least favorite. So, how about fried donuts, olie bollen, instead? Apparently these are traditional in Holland, practically the same thing!! Pete also just remembered the New Year's cake in Madeline's Christmas, with something hidden inside, but I couldn't find the book in the house, (he now claims he might have made this up, trying to get me to make a cake, no doubt) but here is a Greek version, vasilopita, eaten on New Year's, with a coin baked inside.
Okay, I hope everyone has a safe one and what out for those crazy drivers!
