Dream Christmas Dinner

Every December I fly back to Pennsylvania to celebrate Christmas with my dad’s side of the family. And while I love getting to see friends and family in my hometown, it’s always a bit hectic and I naturally wonder what it would be like if lots of things were different and I were hosting Christmas dinner at my house. It would (obviously) be amazing and no doubt tons of work, and maybe someday I’ll get the chance to find out. But for now here’s how the dream evening would go down, enjoy!

    Can I score an invite to this dinner if/when it happens? It looks amazing. And I can vouch that the Brussels sprouts from Real Simple are delicious. I made them this year for Thanksgiving.

    I’m definitely thinking of buying some crackers for the Christmas dinner this year – confetti everywhere!

      the vast majority of the time, yes. i assume you’re asking because i didn’t include a main meat dish, but if you search my Dream Thanksgiving from last month there’s an amazing turkey!
