Ahhhh, Christmas! It’s literally around the corner and I’m sure a lot of folks out there are still scrambling about to get all the last minute details of the holiday taken care of. I’ll be spending half my holiday in San Jose with me mum and the other half here in Sac (still with me mum; we like to share these things), and except for the fact that my Dad’s Christmas gift is going to get there closer to when the 3 wise men actually got to Baby Jesus, I’m actually kinda prepared this year. So, in honor of this year’s Boy Scout-like preparedness, I thought I’d put together a few recipe ideas – from brunch to dinner to desserts & drinks – that you can try in case you’re still running around like crazy and haven’t figured out what to serve for the holidays!
