Some how, some way Christmas week is here! My college boys get home on Thursday and my daughter will arrive home from Spain on Friday and all I want to do is fill my house with all of their favorite foods and friends so they’ll never want to leave again! So I have a big week of cooking in front of me and thought I’d share everything I’m planning to make for the holiday weekend. And then so I don’t leave you hanging wondering what to make for dinner the rest of the week, I’ll share my recipe on Instagram stories each morning. Sound like a plan? Let’s do this.
Christmas Eve Appetizers
We are doing Christmas Eve at my brother’s house this year and they have lasagna on the menu. I only need to bring appetizers. Here’s what I’m bringing:
Christmas Morning Brunch
We usually have breakfast right after the kids open their presents—thankfully these days it’s more like 10:30 a.m. than 5:30 a.m. What I like about these recipes is that I can make them ahead and just stick them in the oven when I wake up so they are ready to go when we are.
Beef Tenderloin (game-time decision for my husband_
I hope having these recipes a little early in the week help you enjoy what’s most important about Christmas—spending time with your family! Have the best holiday!
