Are you annoyed when you’re bombarded with Christmas decorations for weeks before we celebrate Thanksgiving? I love Christmas carols—maybe more than Beatles songs—but in recent years I’ve begun to O.D. on them long before the Yuletide ends. And each year the clock on retailer Christmas displays seems to roll back even further. My local Hobby Lobby was selling Christmas paraphernalia in August this year! But that turned out to be a good thing for me because I needed a couple of items to enhance the pictures in my new ecookbook, “Complete Christmas Cooking: 25 Easy Recipes for Every Christmas Occasion,” which hits Amazon.com any day now.
So I’ve realized that for some purposes it's never too early to start making plans and budgeting for big holidays like Christmas. Especially if they involve having guests to your home, or providing food for classroom parties, open houses, or just to maintain holiday cheer.
We've worked hard at Easy Weekly Meals to put the final touches on “Complete Christmas Cooking,” and now it’s almost ready to help you create your entire holiday menu. Use it to make beautiful edible centerpieces, appetizers, quick pre-holiday snacks and meals, a sumptuous Christmas dinner, and easy and delicious post-holiday meals with your holiday leftovers. Stay tuned to our blog and we'll let you know when our exciting new book is ready for download to your computer, phone, tablet, or ereader!
