Christmas is Tuesday! That’s just four short days away. That means you can count the days on one hand. Does that make you stressed? It does for me! I still have of couple gifts that need bought, all my gifts needs wrapped, and the idea of hitting the grocery store this close to Christmas kind of gives me a panic attack. It is the busiest time of the year!
Do you already have your Christmas menu planned by now? If the busy-ness of the season has you a little behind in the menu planning department you are in luck, I did it for you!
For the main course, turkey and ham are always popular, but I think you should make this Sweet + Sticky Pomegranate Chicken. The pomegranates and parsley make it look so festive!
If you have any vegetarians you’re cooking for, make these Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms. Wow everyone with these homemade Cornmeal Yeast Rolls. If you want to serve a salad, you can’t go wrong with this Winter Roasted Kale Salad. Green Bean Casserole is a Christmas dinner staple in my family, but I say change it up this year and serve these addicting Parmesan Roasted Green Beans.
Quinoa Salad with Cranberries + Pecans is also quite festive, delicious, and easy to make! These Cauliflower + Feta Fritters are sure to be a hit! Switch from regular plain old mashed potatoes for Goat Cheese Mashed Sweet Potatoes.
For dessert an all time classic and always a crowd favorite, Caramel Apple Pie. Just make sure to save some room for it!
Have a Merry & Delicious Christmas!
