Menu: Trim the Tree & Deck the Halls!


Goodbye Thanksgiving, hello Christmas!  This weekend marks the official start of the Christmas season, and I'm so excited!  We plan to go buy our Christmas tree this weekend, and then the decorating and Christmas extravaganza will begin!  This is quite the ordeal - loading everyone in the car, spending a ridiculous amount of time picking out the *perfect* tree, pulling out all the decorations, sorting the decorations, and then of course doing the decorating.  Therefore, snacks and refreshments are a necessity.  Here's a fun and easy menu to keep you nourishing during the tree trimming!  If you need a full meal, include the stew and biscuits.  But if you just want to snack, then the drinks, toasts, and fudge would be perfect for tiding you over until dinner.  Especially if you add some fresh fruit or credit!

 It's become our tradition to sip on Peppermint White Russians as we deck our halls, and this year will be no different.  A pitcher of these will definitely put you in the Christmas spirit!

Bacon and Cheddar Toasts
Chicken and Sausage Stew with White Beans and Spinach
Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

Beth's Famous Fudge
Peppermint White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Holidays, everyone!  I'm looking forward to sharing tons of fun baking ideas and festive recipes this month!  If you have any special requests or ideas, please leave them in the comments.

Hi Maryam! I honestly don't remember, but it could have been a beer bread. I love The Pastry Queen's Beer Bread; I'm sure if you did a quick search for it you could find it online. It's so so good! Hope you enjoy the stew!
