Christmas is coming like a freight train and it’s all I can do to keep from getting flattened.  I am hosting Christmas dinner again, which I always do and love having family over.  My  menu will be almost identical to years past and be a mixture of paleo and non-paleo items.   We try and mostly eat clean, but there is plenty of imperfection that happens this time of year.

Here’s the plan:

Christmas Morning

Monkey Bread – a sugary grain-filled tradition that is sure to put us in a a diabetic coma.
Fruit Salad – #paleo even tho they are not in season, I splurge and get our favorite fruits: strawberries, pineapple, kiwi, blueberries, cantaloupe and banana.
Carmelized Onion Frittata#paleo

Mid-Day / Snacks / Munchies

Ham & Cheese Sandwiches
Veggie Tray and other leftover munchies from Christmas Eve
Shrimp Cocktail
Christmas Punch - Ginger ale w/TJ’s Orange Mango Juice or Cranberry Cocktail

Christmas Dinner

Prime Rib with Roasted Garlic and Horseradish Crust  – #paleo
Homemade Horseradish Sauce – #paleo (using homemade mayo)
Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes – in the crockpot
Corn Pudding
Roasted Asparagus – #paleo — these go in the oven while the prime rib is resting.
Broccoli Salad – #paleo — I’ll prolly add some paleo mayo in the dressing as well
PBC Salad 
Crescent Rolls

Dessert

TBD — mostly leftover treats from Christmas Eve.  I’m hoping we’ll be stuffed by this point!
