What special holiday meals are you making next week? For Christmas Eve we always have Ham (pg. 85) and Grandma Babor’s Clam Chowder (pg. 37) at my mom’s house. All other dishes change but the ham and clam chowder are staples!
For Christmas at my house I am making Beef Tenderloin (pg. 88), Mushroom Risotto, a simple green salad with The Perfect Vinaigrette and maybe Creamy Broiled Tomatoes (pg. 71). We are having Spice Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (pg. 135) for dessert… and a platter of cookies and entire table of candy.
If you are feeding a lot of people and want something very simple might I suggest Oven Roasted Brisket (pg. 95) and Grandma’s Green Beans & Potatoes (pg. 72). You can’t go wrong. You can even make the brisket the night before, put it in the fridge, scrape the fat off the next day and rewarm. I always make it the night before if I can. In my opinion, it tastes better that way.
Regardless of what you are serving, wishing you and yours a happy, healthy and safe holiday!
