I publish a stand-alone blog for foodies and food lovers. I also have a Twitter account, a Facebook page, a Tumblr microblog, and several Pinterest boards devoted to food-and-drink-related topics. I enjoy sharing content throughout the year, but I especially love this time of the year the most because … ??? Because ’tis the season to be jolly. YAY! 2019 was a very busy year for me. Looking forward to 2020. What about you?
This countdown started on November 11, 2019. Are you counting down?

Chili is also a big deal during Christmas time. But as I explained in another post, Texans use any excuse to prepare a big pot of chili.
I was introduced to this tradition by my Cuban friends. I won't roast a pig myself, but I'm not going to lie … I won't refuse a piece if it is served to me at a holiday dinner. This might not look appealing but the smell and the taste are irresistible. Unless, of course, you're vegan or vegetarian or you don't eat pork.
Based on my family traditions, there are two food items that only appear during the Christmas holiday. One is fruitcake. The other is eggnog. You either love it or you hate it. I'm not even going to discuss fruitcake. But eggnog merits a little discussion. People have gotten creative and they don't just make the eggnog drink. They also make cakes and other desserts. So even if you don't like to drink eggnog, you might like gluten-free eggnog cupcakes.
