With every Christmas, comes the food that we love and food that every year, makes you question someone’s sanity on why the heck they would like that dish! Now, listen, I am not the pickiest eater and I do love trying new food. You have to try everything once in your life right? Just don’t give me anything with blue cheese, I am deathly allergic :/
Can we start with fruit cake? Who in the world likes fruit cake? Why? You have to make it like a month in advance and soak it in brandy or whisky or whatever the heck you soak it in. Why? I understand people love it though. I grew up DESPISING nuts so maybe I have never liked it because of that. Who knows.
Turkey is another thing I battle with. Specifically smoked turkey. I find that it literally tastes like dish washing liquid. Yes, I know what that tastes like, that’s another story lol! I do like roasted turkey, when you shove it in the oven for like 4 hours. That’s good but my mom always insisted on smoked turkey.
Growing up, my mom owned bars and restaurants so every year she would do a Christmas meal. With that meal came a dessert that I have only ever seen her make. Basically it was marshmallow’s cut into pieces and soaked into condensed milk over night. That’s it. It was the sweetest thing in the world and I would avoid it at all costs! I don’t do well with sugar and that was just overkill. Luckily she had like 7 desserts so that was okay.
The last one I will mention this time ’round is trifle pudding. Why? That’s all I can say about that. Just WHY???
Do you have Christmas dishes you despise? Are your favourite dishes something I have mentioned? Let me know! I would love to hear about them!
