28 Days to a Stress Free Christmas - Tip #12


 Tip #12

Time to plan out the Christmas menu.
If you are like me you already have it planned and half bought. 
In tip #4 i advised you to go shopping. No worries if you didn't.
This is another thing people seem to go crazy for. 
As though it would not be the best meal unless every tradition 
was followed. Even if you can not find the things you want
you can make do. Promise it still will be !!


Make the things you know your family will enjoy.
You do not have to have a turkey.
A holiday meal can be anything you want it to be.
This year we will have a turkey but only because i 
was able to get one for free back in the beginning of November.
The rest of my menu will be family favorites.


My Menu:
Orange glazed Turkey
Twice baked Mac n Cheese
Mashed Potatoes with Homemade Gravy
Corn on the Cob
Homemade Biscuits
Tossed Salad

Baked goods:
Homemade Apple Pie with Ice Cream

Bonus Tip
If you are on a very tight budget
shop for your holiday meal with whats on sale.
Because stores know everyone is buying
turkeys hams and things like that 
most other meats go on sale.
