It’s hard to believe Christmas is a mere seven weeks away. It feels like just yesterday I was gathering with my family, stuffing my face with glorious holiday food, and opening presents galore.
It might seem like a long way out, but seven weeks is the perfect amount of time to start planning for the big day. From shopping for gifts to planning the menu, I’ve found prioritizing your to-do list can make everything manageable and enjoyable. In true foodie fashion the one thing I like to tackle first is the menu. And while I have gone all-out in the past, serving fancy crostini, devilled eggs, and gluten-free brownies, this year I am going to keep it simple and get back to basics.
It feels really good knowing my family will be sitting down to a meal made up of some of their favourites. From my fragrant Mulled Tea and easy Caprese Bites, to a Traditional Turkey with Cranberry Stuffing and a No-Bake Dessert, this is a holiday meal I know my family with love (and I know your family will love too!).
