Well Ho Ho Ho and a Jingle Bells to you!! Don’t you have something better to do today than read my blog? But where else will you find all this fantastic holiday-ness about to go back in the closet for another year. Sigh. I’ll miss my little friends.  I didn’t grow up with food ornaments, but I’m pretty sure it’s only because we were separated at birth. We just go together.

If you haven’t been following my Facebook posts, this is the third 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 three years!!! However today – one time deal – I am offering up a curated collection for your review – the best of 2013, 14 and 15 – 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!

And before we go, here are my personal favorites…..TV Dinner (who thought of that? Genius!!), Lasagna (new this year), 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!!

Wishing you and yours a very merry. And a big heartfelt thanks for being a loyal reader. I’m off to Argentina for a couple days and will be right back here in early January. Don’t forget to eat your black eyed peas (Friday) and wear your red knickers (Thursday night) for the best of luck in the new year. I’ll be back reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaalll soon! XO
