Here we are in the last month of the year!  Hard to believe, but oh so true.

This month is going to be filled with holidays of all kinds for all different beliefs, so there will be a lot of food, fun and variance of flavors for everyone to try out and enjoy!

I know on Wednesdays I usually try to give some recipes or ideas for recipes-but since most of us will be having potlucks at work, with friends and possibly relatives, I thought this would be a great way to try out some different traditions!

When I taught pre-school and ran a day care, I would ask all the parents to provide one snack for the two weeks prior to my closing for the year-one hitch though:  It had to be a food that meant something to their family and I asked that they not only bring it, but tell the entire day care why it was special!

Those that couldn’t take the time off of work were asked to write it up for me so I could bring the child up and read their “story” to the kids.

We had all kinds of snacks!  One of Japanese kids brought potstickers.  Another one brought “jeweled rice“.  One boy with a Cajun background brought black-eyed peas and dirty rice!  We also had parents make home-made cinnamon rolls, matzo ball soup (okay that and the latkes/applesauce were me), chicken and dumplings and one brought in an angelfood cake and jello combination that didn’t go over too well.

That being said-I thought it would be wonderful if some of you would share a dish that means a lot to your families during this holiday season.

Now, you don’t have to send it this minute, but I’d love for you to have them trickle in here-variety and food are truly the spice of life!  Share yours with us here at fab40!
