This time of the year brings on food you don't normally have on your table.
I have to admit - I'm the guy who actually likes fruitcake.
What's yours?

My Mom & I make a German style sweetbread called Stöllen,  with almonds & candied fruit rinds and also one with a poppy seed filling.
We usually also make a roast duck with red cabbage.  And a meat salad with apples, pickles & onion.

In my wife's side,  we make home made pork tamales,  menudo (not necessarily a holiday food) and the white wedding cookies.

Extra running is in store to work off all the good food!!!!

I'm the guy who actually likes fruitcake.
I do too, but don't get to eat it much anymore.

I usually cook Parmesan stuffed, bacon wrapped boneless turkey legs and a standing rib roast for Christmas.  They'd be my favorite of the foods I'm (sorta) allowed to eat.

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?
