My family isn’t steeped too deeply in family traditions.
As kids, we didn’t go to the same summer vacation spot year after year nor did we play the perennial party games at the annual family reunion.
But we did always gather as a group on Thanksgiving and Christmas. And that’s why it’s my favorite time of year. Memories of us all getting together to eat, share, arm wrestle—and beat—my boy cousins and watch TBS’s 24 hour A Christmas Story marathon.
Mommy’s little piggy: my all-time favorite scene:
- 2 pounds ground ham
- 1 pound medium cheddar cheese, grated
- 8 eggs
- 2 cups milk
- 1 tablespoon dry mustard
- 1 tablespoon parsley
