I wanted to plan a Christmas dinner where everything was fresh, no frozen or canned food. Oh, I did have one thing that was canned and that was the cranberry sauce. I could have made my own from fresh cranberries but I just didn’t. I have to have my cranberry sauce one way or the other. I can’t have dinner without it. This time of year I seem to be starving for fresh vegetables and fruits. It is so hard to find anything fresh this time of year so this is the menu that I came up with.
We had a wonderful spiral ham. Along with the ham we had Pototoes Au Gratin. This recipe was sooo good. I may even remake this recipe and put some leftover ham in it. This dish had NO leftovers!!
The next thing I made was Creamed Spinach. I used the fresh baby spinach that can be bought in bags and are already washed. It was a good quick side dish.
Then I made Whiskey Glazed Carrots. Oh me, oh my was it good. I am going to have to make this again sometime. We also had some of Pioneer Woman’s Parker House Rolls. We ate those up so fast that I couldn’t get a picture of it.
