..or literally anything you are celebrating in the next two weeks.
Hello and how is your life! We have moved, had dance recitals, cleaned out our old house via 9,827 trips across town, lost things, found things, donated things, done some Christmas shopping, cancelled a vacation, and now, finally, are getting all in on Christmas, which they tell me is next week.
I have done no planning, no decorating, no wrapping, hardly any shopping. The whole thing is v out of character, but it’s a season we’re in right now so I’m going with it.
Now, though, the dust is settling somewhat and I’m all…oh right so it’s happening NOW. We’re hosting a gathering next week with Jay’s family which will be lovely, and I’m starting to piece together what things I can cook for what stuff we’ll be doing this week and next.
Here are ten things that are on my list! They can be made together for one big, excellent meal, contributed to potluck family dinners, or turned into food gifts, aka my favorite thing ever.
- Feta Dill Cheeseball. Always and forever the best Christmas appetizer.
- Caramelized Onion Gruyere Bites.
- The best Kale Salad EVER, promise.
- Glazed Ham.
- Garlic Herb Roast Pork.
- Baked Mashed Potatoes.
- Roasted Spiced Brussels.
- Crispy Garlic Potatoes.
- 2-Ingredient Peppermint Patty Fudge. This makes a great teacher’s gift!
- Chocolate Chess Pie.
Honestly….might make all of these things between now and NYE. Which we also have no plan for yet but that’s in TWO WEEKS, we have time.
Hope your days are merry, bright, and manageable!
