Bring your family and friends around the dinner table with our Christmas Dinner Meal Plan! Each recipe is a family favorite from our house to yours to celebrate the season!
Christmas is just a couple days away and I can’t wait for some quality time with my family. We bake cookies, sit on the couch and snuggle, watch Christmas movies, and hide from the cold outside. It’s the best! Then comes a traditional Christmas dinner. I fill our table with a yummy holidays ham, our favorite sides, and a few Christmas desserts we all love. Our Christmas dinner menu doesn’t vary too much from year to year, save for the swapping of a side dish or drink that we couldn’t get enough of that year. These Christmas dinner ideas will help you celebrate the holiday season with your loved ones and fill your hearts and stomachs with joy!
