‘Tis the season to indulge in Arrow’s most festive tradition, The 12 Days of Christmas. It’s time for Vitalia Stow’s culinary team to get creative for each day of festivities. As residents, family, and friends join around the table. We’ll embark on a delectable adventure. It started with the iconic partridge in a pear tree and ended with the drummers drumming. Each day will be a culinary experience that truly captures the essence of the holiday season. Every unique dish tells tales of tradition, celebration, and the spirit of togetherness.
My favorite of the 12 Days of Christmas is five golden rings on day five. This is my favorite day because we centered our Happy Hour food around golden rings, and it was fun to be creative in coming up with round golden foods. The most challenging of the 12 Days was making cream puffs from scratch for the eleventh day, eleven pipers piping. It was a tedious process but very delicious.
The residents seem to enjoy day six with six geese a laying. We did a breakfast hash unique and don’t typically have breakfast specials. The Plant Operations Director made homemade kettle popcorn for the staff on day ten, featuring ten lords a leaping. I wouldn’t change a single day of the 12 Days of Christmas. They were all so much fun!
My family always makes a pear salad on Christmas day for dinner. We also hide the pickle on the Christmas tree, and whoever finds it first gets to open the first gift.
The culinary team is immersed in the magic of shared meals, laughter, and holiday warmth that truly brings our community together. The 12 Days of Christmas has allowed the team to explore the diverse and vibrant spectrum of flavors that make this season truly magical. Here’s to a season filled with the warmth of friendship, the sparkle of joy, and the lingering tastes of the 12 Days of Christmas. Until next year, when we get the opportunity to use our creative flare once again, “Happy Holidays!”
