Sharing Family Traditions


Sharing Family Traditions

Every year on the first day of school I make the same breakfast for my family, this baked oatmeal. My kids look forward to enjoying it before heading to the classroom and I like knowing their tummies are full before a long first day back. This has become a family tradition for us. We don't have a lot of traditions (we hope to add more as the years pass), but the ones we do have usually revolve around some of our favorite recipes.

On Christmas morning, after we open presents but before we tear into our stockings so there is still something to look forward to, we always enjoy this Gluten Free Breakfast Bake. Even my husband who isn't gluten free loves this dish. The flecks of red throughout give it a festive touch. For Easter, this 3 Day Coconut Cake is on the menu. It takes some time "marinate" but is well worth the time and effort.

When you're taking someone a meal do you scour the internet for new and impressive dishes? Have you considered instead sharing a family tradition? I personally love tasting and hearing about what other families do and why they do it. Being welcomed into another family's customs is a powerful way to show friendship and love.

What are some of your family food traditions? Who could you share them with this week?
