Eleven Days of Liddabit: Day Three, Michelle
Now it’s Michelle‘s turn; she’s our head production assistant and retail merchandising designer. Whaddya got, Michelle?
What food do you only eat during the holidays? Do you look forward to it all year, or dread it?
My family goes to a Xmas eve party every year, with a bunch of friends whose kids all grew up together. When I was young, I was a sooooooper picky eater, so parties were difficult. Thankfully though, Xmas eve always featured some faves, particularly pigs in a blanket…which are tiny versions of hot dogs, which were about 47% of my diet at the time. Needless to say, one year when I was about seven I overindulged in a big way on the tiny hot dogs, and ended up getting very sick at the party. I now have pretty mixed feelings towards them, although my family makes sure to serve them every Xmas eve.
Can you share a special holiday recipe?
Last year over the holidays I made from-scratch sticky buns that were amazingly satisfying. I used Flour’s recipe – SO good!
What gift(s) would you like to get for the holidays?
Anything involving a massage. Any sort of spa treatment sounds like such a special luxury for me.
What is your favorite Liddabit treat, and why?
My favorite is definitely the Humbug. Growing up, peppermint patties were my go-to candy, so anything with that mint/chocolate combo is instantly a winner. And the humbug is the perfect amount of sweet/salt/mint creamy crunch. My husband demands me to take home scraps when we start making it. [FYI, folks, you can ONLY get the Humbug bar in the Season’s Sweetings box! And it won’t be around forever…*hint hint* –Liz]
