Who’s excited for Christmas?! Me me me! If you don’t celebrate Christmas, you can be excited too…for traffic to clear up and people to stop talking about trees, elves, and Santa .
Do you know what’s going to be on the menu for your holiday meal? Peter has all sorts of dishes up his sleeve and I’m sure Lo the Bro does as well. My foodie family can’t help but use Christmas as an excuse to pull out all the stops.
If you’re still meal planning for the big day or need something to bring to a gathering, below are some recipes to help you along. The theme of this week’s Soy Simple post is incorporating soy into holiday dishes. The recipes below either include soy or can be tweaked to include it.
Happy cooking, eating, celebrating, giving, and receiving!
