This year let us help plan the feast, so you can spend time with the fam.
The Christmas season means a lot of things: Shopping for Christmas presents, decorating the tree (watching the Hallmark Channel movies), and spending time with the family. Then there's the always-stressful planning and prepping of your holiday meal. If you're feeling stuck by what to make this year, or wishing you could shake things up, take a look at these carefully cultivated, easy Christmas dinner menu ideas, which come complete with every type of recipe imaginable. Whether you're intrigued by an original, Tex-Mex-inspired Christmas dinner (featuring beer-braised chicken, buttermilk and Hatch Chile grits, and Texas-style pimento cheese, no less!) or would rather stick with the classics (think: a glazed rack of lamb or a sweet spiced Christmas ham), there's something on our list of Christmas dinner menu ideas that both you and your family will love.
In the mood for a dessert-heavy spread? Not to worry: We've got you covered in that department too. After all, you didn't bake all those Christmas cookies for nothing. Our apple-Cheddar crumble pie makes for a heavenly addition to any Southern menu, while a chocolate bourban pecan pie or mini brown sugar tart is sure to please just about any palate. Of course, it's not a true Christmas dinner without a few Christmas party decorations, some gorgeous Christmas table settings, and a Christmas cocktail or two to top off your amazing Christmas dinner menu. Check out our ideas, and get ready to be crowned hostess of the year!
