Paul, VA, Thursday, December 13, 2 !.22 .and ships..and sealing wax..by rou g Gregory Holiday food The word Tn'the above title had to be "holiday" rather than "Cb_dstmas," since this is about food that is traditional "at Thanksgiving and New Year's, as well as Christmas '.I 'thought of "Holiday Cuisine," but that seemed a biCtob elegant, at least for the food at our house; and ' 0|iday Goodies" implies cookies and cakes and pie s, mad while they're essential part of the holidays, entjre,menus, both savory and sweet, for these special-days will be at least listed here, if not discussed. So the safest thing, it seemed to me, was just simply to title these comments "holiday food". While most-families do have a few special foods, sometimes e'qefl fancy ones that appear on one or more of theirholiday tables, most of these dishes are nothing more than comfort food, anyway, so I decided beyond the grocery budget at my house!) New Year's Day foods, according to custom, should be chosen for the luck and economic good fortune they bring. Although I thought that most of the foods I consider to be part of the menu for New Year's Day have Southern roots, I found that many of them are found around the globe, and some date back to early Rome. Several categories are "musts," according to a website I found. They are grapes, greens, fish, pork, legumes and cakes. Of course the traditionally Southern collard greens and black-eyed peas fit right into that tradition, and I suppose corn bread could be interpreted as a kind of cake... Greens, which are usually folded, suggest paper money, and legumes remind the diner Of coins, the to call a spade a spade, or at least a turkey a turkey! website said. Both are considered to be good Thanksgiving is the easiest holiday to discuss, economic luck, and while an improved economy is food-wise, siiig it's one of the few which is strictly always welcome, 2013 would be an especially American. Of.course, a couple of other countries have appropriate time for that to happen!
