Dear Friends of Falk,
In the words of Norman Vincent Peale – “Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful”
When you think about your favorite memories, chances are it involves someone dear to you. And we believe that is what the holidays are all about. Because connecting with family and friends involves feeding them, we are sharing some of our traditional Christmas foods.
First, we ignore the six boxes of decorations downstairs and make our traditional softer more beautiful Fruit Cake! A little magic is needed to appeal to the guests who want to shellac it and hang it on the tree. This is fruit cake you can actually eat. The cake is just; coconut, brazil nuts, walnuts, dates, sweetened condensed milk and of course colorful candied cherries. You can find the recipe on our blog https://www.copperpans.com/blog
Next, we get all the decorating, shopping, caroling and donating done as quickly as possible.
Lastly, we make Christmas dinner. Our favorite holiday main course is Beef Wellington. We made it once when trying out new recipes. We both were enchanted by how pleasing it was on the eyes and the palate. It has become a bit of a tradition when we entertain and celebrate special occasions. Now our adult children are beginning to make it too!
We wish you all many happy memories made of rich conversations and good food!
Vicki and Mike
