Well, it’s officially Thanksgiving week, which means that we will all be eating like crap for the next month. Hey, holiday calories don’t count, right? (Just like weekend calories and vacation calories, except holiday calories seem to be a little bit more lenient with the rules, and a little bit more dangerous to the waistline).
But really, I think we all do enjoy going to our various holiday parties, laughing and chatting with our family and friends, and stuffing our faces with yummy food. Some of us might be traveling out of town, some of us might be hanging around closer to home, some of us might be attending a very causal get together, and some of us may be attending a formal sit down meal. But whatever our own holiday party situation is, one this is for sure – we will be bringing a dish to share. And if you are attending multiple engagements over the next 4 or 5 weeks, you will probably have a couple dishes you have to prepare.
I enjoy cooking and trying new recipes, but I typically like it to be something quick and easy, especially around the hectic holiday season. So today, I thought it would be fun to assemble 4 different recipes that you can make for your next party! They are all very different from each other, but all are simple, easy, and can be made in less time than it takes to assemble your Christmas tree!
