Food is always a part of any family tradition. Think back to your childhood, all major celebrations included food. Christmas and Thanksgiving, big family meals together at the table with everyone gathered around for good food and conversation. Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day all include some aspect of feeding your family. Even the summer holidays and family reunions include picnics and pot lucks.
Does your family have food related traditions? We have almost the same meals each year for all of our gatherings. We have incorporated our childhood dinners with our spouses, our children's spouses and in-laws. We have such a large variety of food now it is amazing. There is always a turkey and a ham for Christmas and Thanksgiving, with dozens of new side dishes added. ( we not feed almost 40 for holiday meals now). Mother's Day includes tea foods, Father's Day is held at a restaurant, with barbecues for the 4th of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day, with everyone bringing a dish.
Please share your food traditions with us, we would love to see them.
