The holidays are here and you can smell it in the air! It’s getting dark earlier and the days are cold. This can only mean one thing…the holidays are fast-approaching! My grandchildren enjoy this time of year, especially putting up the Christmas tree and decorating the house. My granddaughter Mansi is in charge of ensuring that the appropriate decorations and tree is up! When asked what she wants for Christmas, she really couldn’t think of anything and appeared to be content with what she already has. Now that’s the spirit of the holidays!
I won’t get to spend Christmas day with my youngest, 10 1/2 month old granddaughter as she will be visiting her other grandparents and cousins. We will miss them at our family dinner this year.
I have some menu suggestions for the holidays. These menus are perfect for cold winter days! Comfort food at its finest!
You can find all the suggested recipes on my website.
