Plan your Christmas menu and shop for it early.
Don’t get caught in the hustle and bustle of having to go out and shop for your Christmas menu during the last days before Christmas. Enjoy those days home with your family. Watch Christmas movies, visit with friends, enjoy guests in your home. So much time is wasted doing things that can already be out of the way so that you can enjoy the season without feeling pressed for time. Many dishes you can prep things ahead of time and simple store them in the fridge until time to start your meal.
This years my menu is going to be rather simple with minimal preparations.
Smoked Ducks, one with orange glaze, one with plum sauce and one with garlic glaze
Cranberry Pecan Wild Rice
Roasted brussel sprouts or asparagus
Italian Cream Cake
My momma is coming for several days. I plan to spend my time with her and no standing over the stove cooking meals.
I am so excited! She hasn’t been here for Christmas in a long time. That’s the best gift for me this year. Time with my momma!
