Cold weather always makes me crave comfort food, a warm fire and lots of friends and family around to share in the holiday spirit. Why not take advantage of the season and throw a winter dinner party? Throw on some Christmas tunes and you’re all set!
Easy Menu ideas:
- Pot Roast (throw the carrots, onion and potatoes in too, and you’ve got a one pot meal!)
- Pork Loin with Brussels Sprouts and Macaroni and Cheese
- Roasted Salmon with New Potatoes and Kale Salad
And who doesn’t love a festive holiday table setting? Here’s an easy DIY to add some warmth to your holiday get together!
- Long branches of rosemary
- Floral wire
- Branch wire
- Make a circle to your desired size out of the branch wire
- Loosely wrap the rosemary around the branch wire
- Tie the rosemary to the branch wire with the floral wire so that it blends in
Voila! Set on your table over the napkin and plate!
And no party is complete without the background music!
