My husband and son just told me they want to be in charge of appetizers this year; we make certain traditional appetizers, and hubby wants to mix things up this year.
I usually take advantage of our grocery store's free ham promotion, but I came up just short ($20... ARGH!) of making the shopping requirement to do so. I have to admit, I'm sort of happy to have to make something other than ham this year!
The challenges include that it can't be beef and it can't be "fowl." I'm thinking lasagna. I'm thinking THIS lasagna, which my husband has made for us once before. It's really time consuming, so I'm glad we have the longest possible Christmas break this year!
So here's the menu so far:
Classic Italian Lasagna
Vegetable (maybe green beans? broccoli? something different?)
I haven't started to think about dessert yet. In my lasagna searching, I came across some interesting looking lasagna style desserts, which might be fun to play on the theme.
Apple Pie Lasagna
Chocolate Peppermint Lasagna
White Chocolate Cranberry Bars
Any suggestions to improve my menu? What are you making this holiday season?
