It’s hard to believe December is already here. Truthfully, I’d like to know where the heck this year has gone. I swear, every year goes by faster. Or is it just me?
Anyway, I hope you’re ready, or getting ready, for the holidays because they’ll be here whether you like it or not. For me, I love this time of year—Christmas especially. I enjoy gathering together with family and friends, watching their faces light up when they tear open their gifts, and eating some of the most delicious holiday foods.
The one thing I look forward to at Christmas Eve is my mother-in-law’s German Potato Salad. I could make an entire meal on it. Though it wasn’t always that way. I kid you not.
When my husband and I first started dating, I couldn’t stand it. Even the smell didn’t appeal to me. I could hardly stomach the thought of a “hot” potato salad with a vinegary tang. Despite my German lineage, and my familiarity with strange German recipes, this one was too bizarre.
That was the first year.
The second year, I decided to take a little spoonful and eat some out of politeness.
The third year, I spooned a little more, claiming it wasn’t all that bad.
The fourth year, I kind of craved it. Oddly enough, I heaped a bigger helping onto my plate.
The fifth year, I couldn’t wait to eat it, and the rest is history. It is by far my favorite thing to eat at Christmas.
So what do you crave most during the holiday season? (Maybe it isn’t food…) Either way, I’d love to hear your story.
