So you’ve made it through Christmas Eve dinner, brunch the next day and finally Christmas dinner. Two, three down but there is still the weekend, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and another weekend to celebrate with family, friends, fun and food.
Whether everyone is coming to your house or you are headed out to a pot luck, here are a few ideas!
Need something to nibble before dinner?
Flatbread with Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions & Spinach, Sweet Potato & Goat Cheese Crostini or Greek Stuffed Mushrooms or Smoked Salmon Mousse? If you’ve got kids around, be sure to whip up batches of my Couldn’t Be Simpler Salsa & Guacamole.
Next you’ll need some cozy comfort food. After skiing, skating or snowshoeing, it nice to have something that can bubble away while you relax. A hearty soup will do. Try my Hearty Black Bean Soup, Curried Chicken & Lentil Soup or Moroccan Chick Pea Soup?
Then again, chili will sound pretty good at the end of a bone-chilling day! Red Bean Chili with Pork & Butternut Squash, Tex-Mex Braised Beef with Black Beans & Corn or Chicken Chili & Black Bean Chili.
Happy Holidays with Family and Friends and Bon Appétit!

Most everyone I know is on vacation until after New Year’s. What about you? How are you spending the next week or so? And what will you be cooking in your kitchen? I’d love to hear from you. Let’s get a conversation going.
