My family has a winter holiday tradition to make egg rolls from scratch. Usually the lengthy process happens on Christmas Day but this year we made them on New Years Day. We all love to cook and working together makes light work of the tedious rolling.

A corollary tradition is to stuff any remaining wrappers after the filling is gone with random foods. This year, cocktail cherries and chocolate was a hit. Lil's roll with a gumball, seen above? Totally disgusting! Though I love her face and my Mom's smile in the picture.

Does your family have any similar traditions?
