Christmas Time Machine
It's not possible to be with the ones we care about on Big Holidays, like this one, for reasons sad and diverse that range from misunderstanding to death.
I come from a Polish peasant family that made good in the New World. Thatched houses were replaced by brick and shingle. The food, though, stayed the same.
So, in an attempt to invoke the spirits of those gone and gone away, here's tonight's menu, all made by your truly, even if i didn't start off having any real idea of how to make it happen.
Pieorogies, potato and sauerkraut
Ham (no goose)
Unsweet sweet potatos
Sweet potatos for old time's sake
Onions and potatos
Fish, coconut encrusted
Red, white and chocolate ice cream
Spinach artichoke dip
Just missing one ingredient - you. Happy Christmas. You'll be remembered in every bite.
