Tomorrow on the blog, I am going to be talking about my favorite holiday memories so today, I want to talk about my favorite holiday FOOD memories. My family loves to eat and all of our gatherings revolve around food. We have so many traditions that revolve around food and I want to share my favorites with you! My husband made us Slow Cooker BBQ chili which turned out amazing and I know you will love it!


1. Oplatek- This is one of my favorite traditions and I have never shared it before! Oplatek is a Polish tradition where you take wafers which you can get from a Catholic church and share them with family. You break a piece off of each others wafer and tell them good wishes. For example, I may break a piece off of my brother's oplatek and wish him luck in school this coming year and good health. It is a tradition that takes 5 minutes but is very special in our family.


2. Polish dinner- For Christmas eve, we have always had all Polish food. This includes pierogi, sauerkraut, kielbasa, fruit compote (a cooked dried fruit dish) and more. We do not eat this food often so it is a treat having it for Christmas.

3. Tamales- From Troy's side of the family, we always have tamales for Christmas which his Aunts and Abuelita make. They take a long time to make and are very labor intensive so when we get to eat them, we know they are very special.

4. Gingerbread men- Along with this goes an orange and an apple. My grandma has always put a gingerbread man cookie in our stockings along with a huge granny smith apple and an orange. Just one of those memories that is awesome because it is a tradition. Traditions are the best!

5. Chili Party- Last year for Christmas, my husband's Aunt hosted Christmas and had a chili party. We had 3 different kinds of chili with all the toppings, biscuits and a salad. My husband recently made this amazing slow cooker BBQ chili that we enjoyed together. It would be great during the holidays.
