4 days till Christmas... let's talk food.
We are staying home for Christmas for the first time EVER (woo!) and hosting my family for brunch on Christmas morning. I've been busy planning out my menu and here's what I've got:
Scrambled Eggs with Goat Cheese
Bacon (always bacon)
Yes, I am drooling. For Christmas dinner, we are making Nick's grandparents traditional meal of spaghetti with homemade sauce and meatballs. Meatballs with raisins in them! I'm still getting used to that. This will be my first time making sauce from scratch, so wish me luck!
What I'm still unsure about is our Christmas Eve dinner. We'll be going to a candlelight service at our church at 5pm, hopefully driving around to check out some lights, and then I'd like to make a nice dinner for Nick and I once the baby goes to bed. But what to make? We usually do ham, but we just had a big ham dinner after Hadley's baptism on Sunday (amazing crockpot ham recipe for the win). I'm debating between prime rib, beef tenderloin... that's all the ideas I've got so far and they both intimidate me. But I can take on anything with this adorable apron I just ordered ;)
What's your families go to meal for the Eve?
Ps. Can't forget about the Christmas cookies, too - I shared my favorite recipes HERE.
