It's that time again - December 20th, time to finalize the dinner menu plans for Christmas dinner. I believe that this is one of my favorite meals to cook during the year. While it takes a lot of time and effort, seeing the faces of my loved ones around the table, enjoying the food and the company, makes it worth it and then some!
