A Week in the Kitchen with Carol
Merry Christmas, everyone! I am hosting Christmas this year. I'm excited to spend time with my family. The outside decorations are done. The tree is up and decorated. Now the menu planning begins.
We are having brunch this year - so much fun! I still plan on serving a ham but we'll have some breakfast recipes along with some of the traditional lunch recipes. Here's my menu so far:
Grandma's Cinnamon Rolls (from the Big Book of Freezer Cooking)
Spiral Sliced Ham with a Spicy Honey Glaze
French Toast Casserole (from the Big Book of Freezer Cooking)
Crispy, Cheesy Potatoes (from the Members area)
Fresh Fruit Salad
This year I am also going to make some edible table decorations. I usually use candles and flowers but I thought it would be fun to try something different this year. I am so exited to try these out.
This little Santa is so cute. I think they will put a smile on the face of all the little ones visiting. Click here if you would like to make some for your Christmas celebration.
Here's another idea I found. I love the colors and the varieties of fruit. I think they would be fun to make and look very festive on the table. I think I will use fresh pineapple and maybe star fruit slices as well.
Here's two new recipes that I will be making for our family's Christmas Day gathering! Enjoy!
Broccoli and Ham Frittata
This is a nice change from a regular Vegetable Frittata. I like the broccoli and ham combination. When make this recipe I use turkey ham, skim milk and 2% reduced fat cheddar cheese. It turns out great!
This recipe is a new family favorite! I got this recipe from my good friend Dave Herrington. When you cook the Brussels Sprouts in the apple juice and add the cranberries and bacon, they take on a whole new flavor. They're not your every day side dish anymore!
