  • I look for activites that the kids can do to keep them busy also along with different foods. One year we made turkeys out of school milk cartons, last year I had bought a Christmas ginger bread house and I had the grandkids help me put that together.

  • I was going to say......leave the giblets inside your turkey........that would make it unforgettable! LOL

    I agree with 405Mom......something that you've not tried before nor has your family. You never know.. it just might be a hit with everyone and the start of a family tradition type recipe!

  • OH one recipe I learned to make in my Italian cooking class is Vin Brule. its a hot wine
    Get a sweet red wine, like a Lambrusco. Put the whole bottle in a pot, or slow cooker, add a whole sliced orange, a whole sliced lemon, a whole sliced apple, 2 cinnamon sticks, 4 cloves and simmer, Serve warm, its so yummy!

  • We are of Polish decent, so we incorporate Polish traditions in our holiday meals. Try that.
