Safe at Home

It's the holiday season! As we continue to stay home and be safe, we can still enjoy this magical time of year. Holidays are a feast for our senses: the smell of a fresh pine tree decorated with all the trimmings, tasting a warm cup of cocoa with melty marshmallows, wrapping the softness of a warm scarf around your neck as you take a morning walk, watching a favorite holiday movie or listening to festive music. But most of all, the holidays bring families together. One of the ways families and friends deepen their bond is by preparing and enjoying a meal together. Food is the centerpiece of so many holiday traditions. The experience of tasting and smelling food, as well as its texture, creates connections in our memories of the moment. It becomes part of our past and our present. So what food memories will you make in the future? We have some fun holiday ideas for foodies while staying safe at home for the holidays!
