This year I’m going to K.I.S.S. my Christmas menu. What I mean is, I’m going to Keep It Simple, Sister! I love to cook and create delicious meals for my family, however on Christmas Day, I’d rather spend more time with them than with the turkey in the kitchen!
My husband’s mother and step-father will be joining us for Christmas Day, so there will be seven of us to feed. With help from my husband and children, we’ve planned our Christmas menu to be simple and delicious. I plan to do a lot of work ahead of time.
Our menu this year is turkey, potato casserole, sweet potato biscuits, asparagus, pineapple cheese casserole, and apple pie. My children enjoy their “special” drinks made with cherry juice and ginger ale, and of course, topped with a cherry or two!
I usually cook way more food than we could ever eat or even need, so this year I’m skipping the cranberry dressing, sweet potato orange cups, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, and the jello salad. Simplicity is the key to really enjoying the day with my family!
