1. Lutefisk

My Dad's family is all Norwegian and Mom learned how to cook the Lutefisk. When i was growing up i could not eat eat it. Then in my late 30's I joined a Norwegian group and helped with the annual Lutefish dinner, a fund raiser for the group. I tried a bite every year just to see if my taste would change. Nope!

2. regular candy canes

and ribbon candy, if I come across it. nobody around here likes them. Thanksgiving has more ick items (to me) - soggy bread (stuffing) and nasty overly sweet sweet potatoes with brown sugar and marshmallows.

4. Mincemeat pie

My mother always made a mincemeat pie. When I get together with my sisters and brother, we always talk about the mincemeat pie, some(like me) loved it, others hated it.

I bought a jar of mincemeat and plan on baking a mincemeat pie to take to the family Christmas dinner on Wednesday.

7. Mom made minemeat pies - probably because my grandmother loved them

Dad's mother, that is. Her sister, my great aunt also loved them but I noticed that she put a LOT of hard sauce on her slice. This was the great aunt who was a teatotaler who never learned that Mom's secret ingredient in her hard sauce was rum.

5. What about fruitcake? Lots of folks hate it, but I love it, esp. the kind with

dried fruit instead of candied fruit. And the pale yellow kind with coconut is wonderful.
