A Simple and Delcious Christmas Dinner the Whole Family Will Love

December 22, 2015

Time has gotten away from me this holiday season and cooking an elaborate holiday meal is not in the cards this year.  I usually spend weeks creating a menu, shopping and prepping the food before the big day arrives.  This year, I decided to give myself a break and just keep things simple.  While there may be no fancy sauces or homemade rolls, this meal is still a winner in my book.  The side dishes are easy and the main dish is still a showstopper.  All you need is a pie or two to complete this meal with a bang.
