Christmas Dinner

Oh my goodness. 4 days until Christmas. FOUR DAYS. I think I've been in denial.

You would think not, as I've wrapped all the presents, and made all the cookies... but I still feel like it's at least a week off. Maybe two.

While cookies and sweets are staples of the holiday, I suppose we do have to eat. Real food, that is.

Even though we haven't quite settled on our Christmas dinner yet, I've come up with a few ideas for you if you happen to be like me, and totally forgot about the whole "dinner" thing. Since everyone goes about the main meal a little differently, I've come up with two separate menus: one fancy pants menu for those that are looking for an elegant way to serve up dinner, and another with more casual fare.

Christmas Dinner #1

Appetizer - Cheese-Stuffed Mushrooms OR Chestnut Fennel Soup
Entree - Beef Wellington
Side - Mashed-Potato Casserole with Smoked Gouda and Bacon OR Wilted Spinach Salad with Warm Apple Cider and Bacon Dressing

Christmas Dinner #2

Appetizer - Baked Brie OR Spin Dip
Entree - Honey-Glazed Ham
Side - Cheesy Corn Bake AND/OR Honey Yeast Rolls

So... what's on your Christmas Dinner menu?


  1. Great ideas for Christmas dinner. :)

  2. The baked brie and beef wellington are my favorites. We are having a rib roast. Christmas dinner is always beef in our household.

  3. Hey I just found your blog b/c my blog has a similar name. I am not so much the spatulas, as I am the running. I basically just started cooking not even 8 months ago. I have ALWAYS wanted to try and tackle a beef wellington. You've inspired me :D
