What Foods Are You Most Looking Forward To On Christmas*

*Or whichever holiday you celebrate
  1. Meatballs
    My aunt makes meatballs with grape jelly, and they are literally one of the best things in life.
  2. Pickles/cream cheese/lunch meat
    TBH, I was kind of afraid it was only my family that did this, but since I found pictures on the internet, I can assume we aren't that weird.
  3. Tamales on Christmas Eve! 😊

  4. Not mashed potatoes, because apparently we're having baked friggin potatoes this year. We do a pot luck every year, and the host said they'll provide a ham and potatoes. Excellent! Then I found it that is goddamned baked potatoes. Boooo. 👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽😡 Christmas means delicious, buttery mashed potatoes. Not baked.

    Not sure if that is exactly what they are called but they are really good from local the Italian bakery.

  10. My mom's Rocky Road.
    It's so simple but soooo good! I don't make it all year so I can enjoy it just at Christmas time. 😊

  11. Deviled eggs. I realize we could make this any time but my family has some weird unspoken rule that it is for holidays only.

    My parents buy them in Chicago, bring them to Iowa to freeze and then fry up with butter on Christmas Eve.

  16. Pigs in a blanket
    They're kind of a big deal at my family's Christmas Eve party, they go pretty fast so you have to grab them as soon as they get set out on the buffet table.
