Friendly Fill-Ins Week 343

Time for the fill-ins. I came up with the first two sentences and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with the second two. If you didn’t do a post for them, you can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate. Don’t forget to add your link to the hop so everyone can visit you. The link is open until Wednesday night.

1. My favorite holiday tradition is __________________________.
2. On Christmas (or Hanukkah) I plan to fill up on __________________.
3. ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house _________.
4. _________ is the best way to spread holiday cheer.
My answers:
1. My favorite holiday tradition is our annual party. It was on Christmas Eve for 25 years, but now it is before so more can attend.
2. On Christmas I plan to fill up on the Polish soup,Zurek. My hubby makes it with his family’s recipe. It is an acquired taste.
3. ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house not a creature was stirring except me getting up to go to the bathroom every 2 hours.
4. Letting people know you care is the best way to spread holiday cheer.
We are also joining Create With Joy’s Friendship Friday and Feline Friday currently hosted by Comedy Plus. Our flashback is from December 2016, Angel Snowball.

  1. I had a Polish friend whose mother made a special soup at Christmas. They called it blood soup. It was made with duck (I think) blood and had raisins in it. It was too foreign for me so I didn’t try it. I looked up your soup and it’s something different.

  2. Dear Ellen I have so very much missed you post and all the kitties this week.
    Welcome back. I hope this comment will post the first one did not.
    Love and Hugs to all Cecilia

  3. I love your fill-ins. You have the Christmas spirit now and all year long. Aw on Angel Snowball. Adorable.

    Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-ins.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend, Ellen. Scritches to all the kitties. ♥

  4. Like Cecilia said so well, you have been missed this week. I checked out the Polish soup and I have no doubts that Jerry and I would waste no time filling up a bowl. Definitely be dunking bread!
    Angel Snowball looks like a floofy white snowball… such a good picture♥
    Here are my Fill-Ins today… hope they make it!
    1. My favorite holiday tradition is fried potato cakes the morning after Christmas day
    2. On Christmas (or Hanukkah) I plan to fill up on mashed potatoes and gravy.
    3. ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house I could hear somebody snoring and it wasn’t a mouse.
    4. Being kind is the best way to spread holiday cheer.
    Thank you, Ellen!

    1. Thank you for these great answers. My hubby used to snore, but he lost some weight and now he doesn’t. I like the idea of friend potato cakes. Have a wonderful Christmas. XO

  5. I have never heard of Zurek so I googled it. I don’t think I would like it, but if it was offered I would try it.

  6. Angel Snowball is the very personification (catification ?) of a Christmas Kitty !

  7. I always like seeing everyone use the fill-ins that you help create. There’s so much fun. Have a very merry Christmas I’m glad that I can finally be in contact with you after all these years if you leaving such lovely comments.

    1. Yes, it can be meatless. We used to do meatless on Christmas eve when I was a kid. XO

  8. Fun fill-ins, as always. And Angel Snowball is simply adorable. xo
