This Saturday we’re having a small gathering with some family and friends. I put together the menu last week and also have the help of family with a few of the dishes (phew, thank you!).
Because this is my “first” hosted holiday dinner party, I wanted to do something less “turkey-like”. I didn’t want to bite off more than I could chew….so, this is our menu:
Olive Tapenade with Crackers
Crudités with Dill Dip
Plenty’s Sweet Winter Slaw
SK’s Caesar Salad (sans the chicken)
Smashed Potatoes with Sage (a various of this recipe, brought by Mom)
Bread and more bread
Christmas Oranges & Chocolate Chip Cookies
All are very easy recipes. It’s my first go at the cake and pot pie, but both came highly recommended by my sister.
