WIAW / Traditional Holiday Eats

If I was a good food blogger, you’d be seeing my eats from the Christmas weekend.  Well…things don’t always go as planned and sometimes life happens and we forget to take pictures of our food.  Or the more realistic scenario where you become so hungry you can’t help but dig in, only to remember later you meant to take a picture.  Oops.


Since tradition exist, that means I have pictures from years past…here’s a bit of what I’ve eaten this and for many Christmas past:


And because I’ve received some requests, here is the recipe I used for the 15 loaves of zucchini bread made for gifts.  This is a recipe our family has made every year but with the changes I used this year and while it was slightly different, still got rave reviews from the peanut gallery. ;)
