With my spread out family, we often end up having three or four Christmas celebrations (especially now that a little one is in the mix). It’s a very rare year where we all sit down for one meal. This year, we have a pre-Christmas with my mother, who is visiting for Christmas Eve. Christmas Day, we head up to my father’s house for another round of festivities. To follow it all up, we have a post-Christmas get-together with my husband’s side of the family. I have some pretty good cooks in my family, so there’s a lot to look forward to. Of course, I will be making my own contributions, since I’m the one with the food blog (lots of pressure there).
I’ve put together some of my favorite recipes for a delicious Christmas dinner inspiration menu. Most of these recipes come together quickly and easily, and I’ve included a bonus recipe for the ambitious cook.
Christmas Dinner Menu
For the ambitious: Chocolate pumpkin cake
A lot of these recipes can be made ahead of time. Keep in mind that many of these recipes (like the pork loin) will need to be doubled or tripled depending on how many guests you are serving. I’ll be available to answer any questions if you have them. From my family to yours, have a loving (and delicious) holiday!
