Ten on Tuesday - 10 Favorite Things To Eat/Drink At The Holidays

Yesterday I mentioned that I got an ice cream maker for Hannukah. Here is the first creation it produced - Oreo Mint. Yum! It's the perfect thing to get me in the mood for the subject Carole and I came up with since there isn't an official one - 10 Favorite Things to Eat/Drink During the Holidays

Oreo Mint Ice Cream

  1. Latkes - you've got to eat them at least once during Hannukah. But it's best to eat them at someone else's house because otherwise your house will reek of latkes for days!
  2. Egg Nog - It's not for everyone but I like it.
  3. Hot chocolate - ideally it should snow during the holidays and snow and hot chocolate go hand and hand.
  4. Chinese food - if you want to find Jews on Christmas eve then check the Chinese restaurants. Srsly!
  5. Gingerbread Lattes - Just keep them coming.
  6. Candy Canes - Yum. I bet they'd go well in ice cream
  7. Cookies - gingerbread, sugar, chocolate chip even Snickerdoodles- they're all good.
  8. Chili - ok, I know this isn't exactly a traditional food but the holidays are all about warmth and comfort foods and chili is both. Besides, this is when I have the time to make it right.
  9. Cocktails - pick your poison. Sit back and relax with an adult beverage. Make mine a margarita.
  10. Meat - It could be london broil, brisket, or steak. The holidays are for family dinners and meat is usually the centerpiece.

What foods do you love to eat during the holidays?

Peppermint ice cream is my favorite! There is a place locally that makes it, but I've done it at home too. I made vanilla then stirred in the peppermint candy before putting in the freezer for a couple of days. The candy starts to dissolve and make a gooey syrup. YUM
Try it!

Hmmm. Chili. Egg nog for sure, but it induces almost too much fear to drink. Cookies! Must have chocolate in them.
