Exactly How Good Are We Talking?

Well Ho Ho Ho and a Jingle Bells to you!! Don’t you have something better to do today than read my blog? I’m flashing back to last year’s ornament post with a few updates because where else will you find all this fantastic holiday-ness before it goes back in the closet for another year. (That’s pretty much a lie because I really just finished my tree, so it will probably be up for most of the next month). Sigh. I’ll miss my little friends. I didn’t grow up with a Christmas tradition of food ornaments, but I’m pretty sure it’s only because we were separated at birth. We just go together. Like ham & swiss, sushi & wasabi, or bacon & eggs. Dare I say, this is the most extensive collection of food ornaments on this planet. I am nothing if not thorough.

Hamming it Up!

If you haven’t been following my Facebook posts, this is the fourth year of my 25 Days of Christmas (ornaments). Everyone always asks if “this is a new one?” They are all new ones, people. No repeats in the four years!!! However today – one time deal – I am offering up a curated collection for your review – the best of 2013, 14, 15 and 16 – plus if you make it through to the end, a couple of new and never-before-seen specials. Can you spot the new ones? If so, please comment. Let me know you are paying attention!

To kick it off – how about a little breakfast – Eggs B? Waffles? Sunnyside up??


With a side of bacon – extra crispy please!

Bacon, Extra Crispy Please

Still hungry? Would you like fries with that?

Would You like fries with that?

Or how about some sushi?


Feeling thirsty?? I know I am. Always! Straight up with olives, please.

Very Thirsty!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh dinner time. I’m a Hoosier at heart – steak and spuds for me.

More beef! More beef!

Personally I’d like to go back to the “straight up with olives” course, but for those of you with a sweet tooth, here you go.

Hey Sweet Thing!

Feeling snack-ish – Pizza? Pigs? Tacos?


Around here, the ice cream stand doubles as the Christmas tree stand – triple scoop with a side of Fraser fir? No problem!

Ice Cream and Christmas Trees

And before we go, here are my personal favorites…..TV Dinner (who thought of that? Genius!!), Lasagna, and Corn Dog (a salute to Naomi Judd whose corndogs I once prepped for the Letterman show).

These are a few of my favorite things

And lastly for that late night fridge raid – Santa, I’m talking to you – PB&J and a deviled egg. No accounting for taste!!

Raiding the fridge

Wishing you and yours a very merry. And a big heartfelt thanks for being a loyal reader. I will be right back here in early January. Don’t forget to eat your black eyed peas (Sunday) and wear your red knickers (Saturday night) for the best of luck in the new year.

I’ll be back reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaalll soon! XO

    I love this!! Especially love the pigs in a blanket, but have to wonder where is that fabulous mustard you make that I love so much?

    • Katy Keck says:

      Ian – I do have a pair of mustard and ketchup earrings – might have to lend them to the cause. You raise an excellent point!
