THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE!
Hello my friends and family! Can you believe the 2022 Holidays are here? Well for me, it is one of my most favorite times of year! We love being with family and friends and celebrating the season every chance we get! Of course, we love going to see Santa, light displays, ice skating (well watching more than participating), shopping (mainly on-line) and gathering around the table for traditional and not so traditional foods and beverages!
And many of you know my family does the “Feast of the Seven Fishes” every Christmas Eve and I shared our menu with you in 2021. And this year, for a Christmas or New Year’s Even menu, I am thrilled to share my Holiday e-Book called “Madeline’s Merry Makings”! I tried to help set you up for a stress free Holiday entertaining guide, suggesting an assortment of cocktails and wine, appetizers, desserts and a main course that I hope leaves your belly full and your taste buds singing!
MAKE IT MERRY!
Whether you grab a couple ideas or follow most or all the recommendations I truly hope you will find that preparing any of my or my family’s favorite dishes and cocktails can make your season merry and bright! Keep some eggnog, cranberry juice and fresh rosemary in the house so if guests stop by you can whip up a quick cocktail for them! And make a batch of my mini chicken meatballs with my sweet and tangy mustard sauce to warm up at anytime!
And if time is truly of the essence, always remember to simplify even more by asking your family and friends to bring a dish with them! Many times I will be responsible for the beverages and a potion of the main course, and then my family and friends will fill in the rest! And everyone takes a hand in cleaning up, bumping into each other in the kitchen, going through all my dish towels to dry dishes, and putting drinks down and forgetting whose is whose!
YOURS TO ENJOY!
So come celebrate the Holidays with me and my family! Let’s enjoy good food and drink, and of course, great company! But most of all, have a wonderful Holiday full of love, kindness, and cheer for being here on this earth living life to its fullest!
Until next time,
Let’s get Holidayin’
