What should I include in a Christmas Basket?
Matthews 25:35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
WHAT WOULD BE NICE IN A CHRISTMAS BASKET
Of course, food would be nice in a Christmas basket, and if you are like me, I like certain things on Christmas day. So here are my suggestions, but PLEASE make the basket yours and personal IF YOU ARE DOING A COMPLETE BASKET.
A turkey, ham, roaster, chitterlings, cornish hens, large stuffed fish, duck etc. (A meat)
Collard greens, spinach, kale, turnips, or some other leafy vegetable
Green beans -- any kind
Cornbread -- (all ingredients or Jiffy mix or other brands)
Dinner rolls (pre-cooked or all ingredients for making it)
Stuffing mix (or ingredients for making it from scratch)
Macaroni and cheese (box or scratch ingredients)
Potato salad (potatoes, celery, eggs, salad pickles, paprika and mayonnaise)
Mashed potatoes (white potatoes or Irish potatoes)
Candied yams (sweet potatoes, sugar, cinnamon, butter, and marshmallows for some)
corn on the cob
Cakes, pies, banana pudding, cookies, candy etc.
Drinks -- any kind
These are SUGGESTIONS FOR A CHRISTMAS BASKET for a CHRISTMAS MEAL.
This may not even be what you think of for your Christmas, so make your Christmas Basket YOURS. REMEMBER YOUR FAMILY may not have anything, and they will be HAPPY WITH YOUR GIFT NO MATTER WHAT!

Peace and blessings always!
As a long-time resident of Mount Rainier and a homeowner, it is important to me that municipal government be inclusive of all of its residents. It is equally important that information be communicated through all possible channel so that residents can get involved. It is also important for residents to volunteer and serve on committees, commissions, boards and task forces. I truly believe that municipal government is the government closes to the people, and as such should be easily accessible. This BLOG is another effort to reach out to the residents of Mount Rainier.
