I won’t be posting an official menu this week, but I thought I would share what we are eating for Christmas. We almost always host Christmas dinner at our house and are looking forward to doing so again this year. While we generally try to eat clean, we aren’t purists and our day will definitely be filled with non-primal goodies.
Monkey Bread — a sugary grain-fillled tradition that is sure to put us in a a diabetic coma.
Paleo Banana Bread French Toast — #paleo actually, this Civilized Caveman recipe looks so yummy, it may sway me to skip the grains and try it instead.
Fruit Salad — #paleo even tho they are not in season, I splurge and get our favorite fruits: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cantaloupe and banana.
Bacon — #paleo mmm Bacon. I like the Applewood Smoked bacon from Trader Joe’s.
Mid-Day / Snacks / Munchies
Ham & Cheese Sandwiches
Veggie Tray and other leftover munchies from Christmas Eve
Sweet & Spicy Dino Nuts — from Clothes Make the Girl — sweet and spicy with a kick!
Christmas Punch – Ginger ale w/TJ’s Orange Mango Juice or Cranberry Cocktail
Prime Rib with Roasted Garlic and Horseradish Crust — #paleo
Homemade Horseradish Sauce — #paleo (using homemade mayo)<
Mashed Potatoes — (Grandma is handling these)
Roasted Asparagus — #paleo
Broccoli Salad — #paleoified: skip the cheese and sugar, use homemade mayo and real bacon.
Christmas Cookies – mostly non paleo
Cheesecake – not paleo, but will use a gluten-free crust (will try and get a recipe together soon)
Trifle – SIL is providing
