I'm looking for ideas for a fun * special * delicious * entertaining Christmas Eve dinner for my husband, two teenagers, and me. We are not huge red meat eaters so that's out of the question. One year we did fondue and I think i made it more work than it needed to be.
Any thoughts? FUN is the name of the game but I don't want to be slaving in the kitchen all day prepping, either.
I am all for non traditional personally... don't know if that helps. But I have really liked trying the recipes from wholefoods.com. We have tried quite a few of their quick ones and we just tried the Mexican Chicken Soup today- yum! Good luck! Gina @ mychooclatepeaces.com
I absolutely LOVE making homemade lasagna every year. You could even make it vegan if you wanted. You can make it a day or two ahead then all you have to do is put it in the oven on Christmas Eve. That's the other part I love about it... no mess to worry with or deal with once Christmas Eve is there! AND... the leftovers work for the days following Christmas.
