Holidays at my house are always centered around the food. Everyone is always crowding around the kitchen, trying to see what's on the menu . I usually end up shooing them away because my kitchen is just too small. My sister came up with an idea to have a cook day. We get together, bring whatever it is we want to cook and at the end of the day, we all take a little of everything that was cooked, home. It's been great fun. Sadly, each time there's always something that we didn't have time to make. This is one of the left behinds.
