Wanted Traditions in food and events

Post  fredvon4 on Mon Nov 13, 2017 1:16 pm

As we approach USA Thanks Giving

I am reminded that all my "world wide friends" have similar traditions that are celebrated with friends/ family, events, and FOOD!

Living all over the world I got invited to and experienced some of the traditional celebrations and the meals

Many more countries than America have some INDEPENDENCE celebration, as well as something akin to Veteran Day, or Armistice ---end of some WAR. many have very local events, crop celebrations

Others may experience major milestones...Example I was stationed at Bamberg Germany in 1970 something ( think it was '74 may have been '75) for their celebration of the 1000th aniversary of the village founding.... a very big deal

Another Germany experience was some anniversary of the Brothers Grimm in the late 70s ....the wall to wall expanse of folks, in the winter, snowing, on the Walk Platz/ Fosse Ganger zone(sure not spelt right) of down town Hanau was simply amazing on several levels....fireworks, food vendors, hot wine, goulash soup, wursts, wine vendors, the sights, sounds, and smells* are memorable to this day for me

Another Germany experience was the picking of grapes for wine and a few weeks later a Federwiesen festival...the starting to ferment wine was (not ready yet) racked off a few liters from each of the farmers Casks and a grand town celebration ensued... Not knowing better I drank more of the sipping wine that recommended... many German friends tried to caution me... others thought it great sport to re-fill my glass again and again
Early wine is a serious purgative....I pooped like a Goose for a week...

* back then... a lot of Germany was coal fired and that distinct TAR smell is pleasurable to me...nauseating to others

I manage to hit and miss on threads....

I would like folks to post about their local traditions and foods

including any family traditions, food dishes, and activities

Fred,  Food is a mainstay of any of our family gatherings. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Birthdays, anniversaries, Before she past away ,Sunday dinner was always at Moms (mother in law) at 4 pm, be there if your hungry or send a friend if your not, there’s plenty of food.   Each family, (brother in law or sister in law) has their own Special recipe of a multitude of dishes, from  Baked onions, to the best homemade Dinner rolls. Our contribution was Aunt Pam’s Green Bean casserole, or even more famous her deviled eggs, the appetizer table wasn’t complete without a dozen on the table and another in the fridge for backup! My favorites are Uncle Tim’s homemade wines, apple, pear, peach and one the don’t sound good but once you start sipping it, you won’t stop: rhubarb wine. No additives, no chemicals, just fruit, sugar, time and love..
Married to my wife’s family, I was a very happy to participate in consuming all
the fruits of their labors. Hey, I was on a very special diet, called the “See Food diet”  if I see food, I eat it.  
Beer, brats and Polish Kielbasa!   I have a slow cooker receipt for Kielbasa and Kraut that even people who don’t like kraut come back for seconds.
Lastly I spend too much time on the internet. Here’s my attempt at following the recipe for “twisted” Meatloaf stuffed with Lasagna! Two favorites in one pan:

Turkey  Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I wait all year for the turkey, stuffing, GRAVY, mashed-potatoes, green-bean casserole, beets, turnip, apple-cider, eggnog..... MMMMM!

As for appetizers... If my Mom makes deviled-eggs.. I have to be very careful not to fill-up on them! I've yet to have my fill. I'd bet that I could eat a dozen.. (E.g. 24 halves..  Laughing  )



Nice plump baked sea-scallops wrapped in bacon is a close second..

Then there's the leftovers..  Shocked Perhaps even better than the initial meal; I LOVE turkey sandwiches! I make then on plain white sandwich-bread; both pieces slathered with "Hellman's real mayonnaise".. several layers of turkey-meat (white and dark), a layer of stuffing and salt/pepper to taste. (I can't wait!)
