Last week I promised you Twelve Days of Christmas Recipes. And damn it, I don’t go back on my word! But sometimes I have these wonderful ideas and then when I try to execute them, I realize how big I dream. I’m not going to give you a Partridge and Pear recipe. Given, this is probably the easiest day to follow the song. I don’t really know how I would give you a recipe for Twelve Drummers or Eleven Pipers unless we just stuck with butter cookies cut into shapes. So instead, I’m going to share with you the twelve types of things I think are essential for a perfect Christmas, finishing off with my ideal Christmas Eve and Christmas Day menus. How does that sound? All on the same page here? Good.
