Build Food Traditions Around Special Days

Build Food Traditions Around Special Days

Tip #4:

Around our house, birthdays and holidays are really a big deal. For those days, we go all out on the food. We have created menus that we use year after year for special days.

  • For birthday breakfast’s we splurge on homemade crepes with nut-butters, fresh fruit, and cheeses.
  • Our family celebrates Christmas with a traditional breakfast from my family – Chocolate gravy and biscuits. Year-after-year we tell stories of Old Smokey and how my mother learned to make chocolate gravy from her mother-in-law.
  • For our Christmas Dinner we share homemade pizza, using the sauce we made (and froze) with the last tomatoes from our garden that year.

What simple meals do you enjoy serving to your family every day? What are some of the special foods you enjoy to celebrate holidays?
