Favorite Holiday food or meal

I'm using Holiday for this because it can be for Thanksgiving & New Year's Eve too as well as Christmas. What is your favorite foods for the holidays? Something you look forward to every year or something you remember from years ago?

Mine are: my homemade cresent rolls, cream cheese & dried beef cheese ball & my grandmother's roast beef on Christmas day! I also love peppermint ice cream w/ hot fudge sauce on it this time of year!

Yummy!!!

Divinity is a true art form.  If anyone here has an IDIOT proof divinity recipe,  please share with the less fortunate! ;D

Cowz- try this

Divinity is made with egg whites, sugar, corn syrup, and pecans.
INGREDIENTS:
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup white corn syrup
1/2 cup water
2 egg whites
pinch salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans
PREPARATION:
Combine sugar, corn syrup, and water in saucepan. Place saucepan over medium heat and stir until sugar is dissolved; boil without stirring to hard ball stage when tested in cold water, or 265 on candy thermometer. While syrup is cooking, beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Add salt and the hot syrup, beating constantly, pouring slowly at first, and then a little faster. When mixture is stiff, beat with a wooden spoon until creamy. Stir in nuts and vanilla extract. Pour mixture into a buttered dish. Mark into 1-inch squares.
Makes 24 squares.

two hints on the divinity, use the freshest eggs possible, you will know this as the whites will be firm.  after about two weeks, the whites will have almost no poof left, and that makes them more difficult to cook over easy as the whites are runny at this point.  also, i would recommend range fed eggs as they are denser.  i helped my grandma and sister with this only a couple of times as i was too stupid to pay attention, but the beating of the egg whites is THE most important step. if you like walnuts, preboil the walnuts for 2 minutes to get rid of the bitterness, or purchase a variety that has low bitterness.

i like it when it is about 1 inch thick.

I come from a long line of Scandinavians.  That was very painful for me during the holidays when I was growing up.  My father and grandfather were very traditional.  We had to have Lutefisk every year.  Seeing it is repulsive but tasting it or smelling it would kill a billy goat.  I could smell it cooking from the barnyards.  Of course we all had to choke some down but the reward was a bowl full of ice cream smothered in fresh lingon.  Lucky for my children I am not quite as traditional as my father.
