In December, a food cart (pictured above) parks next to the big church in the center of town. It sells crepes, gaufres (waffles), and croustillants. Croustillants are fried balls of dough, rolled in sugar, and served hot with an optional side of Nutella. (You can see them up close in the Normandy Instagram highlight if you’re curious.) This cart is a mere 35-second walk from our rental house and we have become almost daily customers. : )
We’ve only ever seen croustillants served in December and it has me thinking about seasonal holiday foods. Is there a food or recipe you ONLY eat in December? Two that come to mind for our family: Seven layer dip, and Snoball cookies. Both are Christmas Eve traditions at our house. In fact, Oscar and Betty are working on a batch up Snoball cookie dough right this minute.
Tell me your December foods!
P.S. — I asked this question on Instagram and the responses are so good! People from all over the world have special December foods. The comments are pure joy!
