What are "grave blankets"?  

 

DW makes Gwumpkis, not sure how to spell it. She'll be making Piorogie for Christmas eve dinner. She also makes Kepusta/Kapusta?  Made with sour kraut and yellow peas.  Very bland and I no longer eat it since her Aunt and Uncle passed on.  Straight Polish they were. 

 

We don't eat Kielbasa. They had a tradition for Christmas eve dinner. We try to adhere but not always.

Grave blankets are flat 'wreath-like arrangements of pine branches and bows' - not a concept from my heritage.  Christmas celebration includes pierogies, kielbasa, bobka, etc - the house will smell like my MIL's used to.  That lady was a GOOD cook.

Best thing about the holidays is the smells.  That is what triggers the memories?  Ah! the smell of cookies baking.

Ranger, funny that you should mention cookies.  The Princess is making some dough that has to be refrigerated overnight, and then tomorrow we start baking cookies.  :drool

Well now Kapusta doesn't smell very good. Cabbage and yellow peas?  ick.  Fried fish?  okay and it's a nice dinner. 

 

Of course when DW bakes it's pretty good.
