Ah, we love the anticipation of celebrating the holidays, and we bet you do, too! Everyone all together, enjoying each other and savoring all that delicious food. Our family tends to establish and cherish certain traditions rather than launching a big experiment each year, but we also embrace evolving and incorporating each other’s ideas.
For example, Mark started making oyster soup every Christmas back when we were still in college. Back then, it was oysters, milk, butter, along with some salt and pepper. As the years went by, I started adding onion and enriching it with a béchamel base. Years later, our daughter’s husband added potatoes to create a heartier version. Each year, preparing the meal is a group affair, cooking together and feeling the anticipation build as the aroma swirls all around us. For us, celebrating the holidays is not about sweat and stress striving to impress. It is about coming together with the people we love and enjoying each other’s company while talking and cooking together.
