Educating Families About the Benefits of Family Meals

Tradition and Humor


The holiday season brings many different family traditions. Whether it be special treats, gifts, or family outings, the holiday season has a way of bringing our families together. A few of our staff shared their traditions and favorite things about the holiday season with their families.

Paula Crouch, Administrative Assistant: Families have their holiday traditions, and we have ours too, but this is mixed with tradition and a bit of humor.  Ever since I can remember, my mother made her famous peanut butter balls every Christmas.  Some, she would dip in milk chocolate, and some in the white chocolate that was pre-colored with red or green candy coloring.  When the time came that this was too much for her to continue doing, I took over because Christmas just wasn’t Christmas without the peanut butter balls.

The first year I made them and set them out, she noticed that I had not used the pre-colored white chocolate and insisted that I had not made them correctly.  I tried to explain that the chocolate is the same but she insisted they tasted different.  Perhaps this would be because I added a bit more peanut butter or something, but no, it was because of the chocolate!  So, as you can imagine, the next year I purchased the pre-colored red and green white chocolate and made my mother very happy.

Guess what, she said they tasted just like hers!
