Christmas Menu


Have you finalized your Christmas plans yet? If not, you better get on that! It's only 16 days until Christmas!

When I created the menu for Thanksgiving, I couldn't help but think about the menu for Christmas too. There's barely enough time to get over being stuffed from turkey and sweet potatoes on Thanksgiving before Christmas comes barreling around the corner.

For some reason, the Christmas menu is never nearly as daunting to me as Thanksgiving. Maybe its because I associate Christmas with presents and cookies not time in the kitchen the day of or because after all of that planning and prep for Thanksgiving, Christmas just comes naturally. I also tend to just wing with recipes instead of rushing around to prepare them before the actual day. Maybe its because my sugar-high from cookies starts somewhere around the first of December and ends sometime in early January that I just don't have the patience. Who knows?

I haven't talked to my family yet, so nothing is set is stone, but here's my 99% sure Christmas menu.

Cookaholic Wife's Christmas Menu 

Prosciutto, Cherry and Goat Cheese Crostinis
Caprese Salad Skewers
Deviled Eggs

Cherry & Peach Stuffed Ham
Garlic Potato Gratin
Green Bean Bundles

Bread & Butter
Cranberry Butter 

Chocolate Mocha Cake with Caramel Pecan Filling

There will also be little goodie bags of cookies for my family to take home. Lets just say I'm making an absolute ton of cookies this year. Curious as to which ones? Almost every (week)day leading up to Christmas there will be a new cookie recipe. So "y'all come back now, ya hear?" 

As for the preparations, it's all going to be the day before. I'll make the skewers, slice the potatoes, trim the green beans, make the rolls and butter and make both desserts.
