A Holiday Menu


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


Butternut Squash & Kale Chicken Pot Pie

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


Flourless Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Coulis

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.

 Happy Friday!!!
