Christmas nibbles through the decades.

As you’re busy planning your holiday party and dinner feasts, be thankful you don’t live in one of these decades.

Sorry, but that looks like a giant molded turd.

Bizarre, and more than a little unappetizing.

To this monstrosity I just say… no.

My mother in law was the queen of ambrosia. She brought it to every gathering and pot luck. The fact that no one ate it never dissuaded her.

We had a group of friends who regifted the same fruitcake nine Christmases in a row. Who knows… it may be circulating still.

  1. That pudding, nuts no. Those banana candles were an invention on reinvention of British so called cook, Fanny Craddock. Her cook books were just, horrible. I must be the only person left in Texas that actually likes fruitcake. But only the one made by what use to be Rainbow bakery, which doesn’t exist anymore.

  2. I am one of the few who like fruit cake. But they do NOT improve with age. I’ll have the 2022 batch, thank you!
    I don’t do pork or Christmas. Not speaking for all Christians, but that meat ‘tree’ is a horror…

  3. I like ambrosia salad.. though Waldorf is better.

    ‘Dripping wax’ is definitely not what “came” to my mind!!

    Do you know about Charles Phoenix? He makes/tries a lot of these monstrosities.

    I made spam cake one year. It was actually good!! It’s strawberry cake. The spam replaces fat/butter and foesn’t impact the taste other than the salt subtly enhancing it. Coworkers scarfed itaa
