recipe: help?? need xmas menu, lost recipe box!!
My husband & I tore our house down and built a new one and SOMEHOW, SOMEWHERE, I've lost my treasured recipe index box! Of course I am hosting Christmas this year and I desperately need help for the menu now!!
This is what I was thinking for a menu:
Turkey & stuffing (got this covered)
Need your tried & true for:
1) 2nd meat: meatballs
2) Vegetables: 2, one must be corn/green beans/peas (DH is fussy)
3) Salad, need 2 (coleslaws or regular leaf salads. I particularly liked a salad I once tried with romaine, sunflower seeds and some raspberry type dressing!)
4) Mashed potatoes: any with cream cheese or garlic per chance?
5) Drinks: before, during & after dinner. Wine during dinner, any other beverages before & after dinner appreciated.
6) Appetizers: pre-made, hot or cold
Any help you can give would be SOOOOOO greatly appreciated. I feel absolutely LOST without my index, so any recipes you have that can fill any of these categories would be awesome. This is my FIRST holiday hosting, and of course, Murphy's Law dictates that my recipe box is GONE!!
Any other ideas on the menu, please feel free to comment!!
Thanks so much for your help!
