establishing a tradition, year two
Is there a rule of thumb over how many times something should be done for it to be considered a tradition? As far as family traditions go, I have to admit this one is in its infancy... read about year one here... but I am hopeful it will continue! Apparently, lessons from last year were not learned. It had been suggested last year that we do a Sint breakfast instead -- that somehow that would mean less overindulgence -- but that seems unlikely really. This was the menu, which was supposed to be a "simpler" one than the last:
Sinterklaas Menu Year II
Grandma's varenyky (potato and cottage cheese)
Oma's potato salad
Oma's cucumber salad
Grandma's Fudge Cake
As always, the best part is being all together!
