Christmas 2016 | My Holiday Menu Roundup.

For me, Christmas isn't about presents. It's hardly even about family and surrounding myself with the people I love most.

It's about FOOD.

Okay, kidding. Kind of. While I've never actually hosted my own Christmas (maybe one day when we live in something larger than an 800 square foot box!), I always try to contribute to holiday meals. Below you'll find some of what I plan to bring to the table (literally & figuratively) this year, or what I've made before:



DRANKS:

- La Marca prosecco. Hands down my favorite prosecco. This is the perfect drink to sip while chatting with the fam before dinner. I've tried a whole lotta sparkling wines, and this is by far the best in my opinion. PSA: it's cheapest at Total Wine & Costco. Like, $4-5 cheaper than you'd find it at a regular supermarket.
- Holiday sangria. I've never made this one before, but I'm excited to try it out on Christmas day. Since, you know, samgria is kind of my thing.

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS:

- Sunday brunch casserole. I've been eyeing this recipe for awhile now, and what better time to try than Christmas morning! It only takes 20 minutes to prep, and 45 minutes to bake. Color me sold.
- Cinnamon french toast casserole. Another recipe I haven't made yet, but I obviously need it in my life. I can't remember the last time I've even had a regular cinnamon roll, so this sounds like the ultimate decadence. 

MAIN NOMS:

- Crock pot maple brown sugar ham. I've made this bad boy for three Thanksgivings in a row, and it never disappoints. Hint: after it cooks in the crock pot, plop him on a baking sheet and broil until the edges turn brown. 
- Stuffing. I feel like you either love or hate stuffing, and for me, it's love love love. This recipe may appear to be pretty "basic," but it's hands down the best I've ever had. 

DESSERTS:

- Sugar cookie truffles. My friend and I made these whilst watching Christmas movies earlier this week, and we were instantly thrown into the holiday spirit. Note - do not add a whole brick of cream cheese. But if you do, just add more cookies. A lot more cookies.
- Oreo truffles. If chocolate is more your thing, you'll die for these. I made these last Christmas and they were a huge hit. So rich, but so worth it. And the absolute easiest to make.

What's on your menu this weekend? Christmas is the day after tomorrow, guys! HOW?
