    What do you like? Dessert? Main courses- which ones? Appetizers? Egg nog?
    I like anything that tastes good, and I am really not that picky.

      I am an amateur chef. I take on the resposibility to prepare the apetizers, main course and dessert for our Christmas feast, and I am happy to do so for three special reasons.

      As chef, I get to choose what will become a part of the menu and how it is prepared.

      As chef, as the cook, before everyone else, I get to taste and sample what I am preparing, to ensure that it is cooked properly and tastes good.

      As chef, even though I clean up all the pots and pans as I use them, I do not have to wash the dishes after dinner is done.

        Wow. I love people who can cook! I "experiment" more than cook.  I sometimes feel sorry for my poor husband who has to be the experimental guinea pig to try the things I make LOL! big_smile.  Yes, my husband and I have a deal. If one of us cooks, the other will clean the dishes smile.  Thanks for answering!

      Pumpkin Pie... Thanksgiving and Christmas just don't feel the same without it.

    Cochinillo (milk fed roasted suckling pig)

    Since moving to Spain, my holiday habits have changed a bit. Although it is not really a traditional holiday meal, it has become so with our family.

      Hmm... that is something I have never tried before. I will have to try that out. I wonder where in Knoxville, TN i can get one of those pigs?  I will check it out. Thanks for answering!

        I´m not sure where in Knoxville you can find an authentic cochinillo. You may have to import it. I first came across it in a spectacular restaurant in Segovia, Spain.


        Am I allowed to post the website of the restaurant here?

        It will give you the recipe in english and some beautiful rooms. It was originally a hunting lodge that was converted into a restaurant in the late 1800s.

    New York Style Cheesecake.  It's so fattening that I would only eat it during the holidays.
