Needless to say, we don't have many specialty markets or anything remotely close to a Fox & Obel in this area.
But folks around here still take (much deserved) pride in making some of their own food.
Case in point:
This year we got home made cookies from my niece.
a home made picnic table for camp from the whole family.
and home-grown (literally) and locally processed pork from my sister.
Living in Chicago, we cant raise livestock or build furniture in our woodshops, but we can bring some things home that aren't available in the country.
so this year we decided to make a dessert table for our slew of neices and nephews- comprised of some of our favorite specialties across the globe.
(to be honest... im in love with the packaging as much as the food)
so here are our 'ten days of christmas' featuring one each of the different sweets and its history...
literally write a book.
