Every year kids wake up before the sun on Christmas, drag their parents down the stairs and open presents. Whether it takes thirty minutes or two hours, they open every last present. The festivities are then over, that is until Christmas dinner.

 

For most students at Steilacoom, that one meal is dessert. When the main course has finally been eaten, Sierra Flake, a junior, finishes off the evening with her family’s Haystacks.

 

For anyone that has never heard of this recipe, she said, “They’re like dry noodles that you mix with chocolate and butterscotch.” This is almost the opposite of what Jaimie Stalden, a senior, enjoys at her Christmas dinner. When asked what her family makes for the holiday, she screamed, “Sticky Buns!” She described this recipes as a dinner roll coated with sugar and butter.

 

Due to the diverse cultures at Steilacoom, Christmas dinners may not be what people know to be advertised in commercials. At senior Ginger Kwak’s family dinner, they have seaweed soup. When asked what this recipe was exactly, she paused and said, “Seaweed soup.” It’s just that simple.

 

On the other hand, senior Mariah Carson’s dinner seems far from easy. For the holidays, her mother makes lamb curry. “It’s a type of Indian food,” Mariah said. “It’s curried lamb over rice.” It may not be what other students are used to, but these are the recipes these students know and love.

 

Sydney Lang, a sophomore, and her family not only have their usual family recipes, but a family tradition to go with them. Her mom, Jenny Lang, the cross country coach at Steilacoom, cooks everything from Haystacks to Italian croissants. After everything is cooked, they meet down stairs and each say what they were thankful for this year.

 

Every student at Steilacoom must admit they have a favorite holiday meal. The presents and decorations are great, but it’s hard to top a signature family recipe.
