    Before we move into the mad dash that is known as December, it is a good time to do some cooking that you can stash in your freezer and pull out when guests stop by. Cookies freeze particulary well, and in coming weeks I will share some of my holiday favorites.
    It is also nice to have homemade nibbles in the freezer that you can just pop in the oven when friends stop over to view your tree and decorations.  This recipe comes from one of the most unlikely, un-pc cookbooks I have, “What’s Cooking, by the Harvard Business School Wives Association.” Really, the wives association? Guess that in 1972 there were no female students at HBS? This cookbook also has an “Afro-American” section that features recipes for barbecue sauce and chitterlings. Apparently even Harvard was not politically correct in the early ’70s.
     And this recipe is kind of like sausage; you enjoy it more if you don’t know what’s in it. But make up a batch or two and you’ll be glad you did.  And you might find that you have many more people who want to see your tree this year.
