Occasional Dishes for Christmas.
At this time of year, when we’re busy with shopping for gifts, food shopping, visiting family and friends, it’s easy just to eat snacks on the run. It’s also very easy to get very bored with turkey. Here are some fairly simple dishes you can cook to make your pre and post Christmas evenings, lunchtimes, and mornings a little more interesting.
Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked harvest has given us this pancetta wrapped pork tenderloin, looks delicious, and I will be definitely making this dish for dinner on Christmas Eve. There is some real comfort food here to take away the stresses of Yuletide.

Chungah at Damn delicious offers us sheet pan steak and veggies. You can’t find an easier meal than this and it looks damn delicious too.

The lovely Averie at Averie cooks has this dead simple dish of curry coconut sweet potato fries with cucumber dill dip. Great to snack on or as a side dish with steak or pancetta wrapped pork tenderloin.

Something a little different from Cooking Without Limits; nests of meat stuffed wine vines rolls for Christmas. I’ve had these in Greece, and I can tell you they are a fabulous dish.

If you have a house full of guests over Christmas, just what can you make at breakfast time that doesn’t involve loads of pans and mess. Well, thanks to Elise Baur at Simply Recipes and Sheryl Julian, you can make this ham and cheese breakfast casserole, and it will satisfy the hungriest house guest.

I really like lamb, and although I don’t cook it often, I will be roasting a leg of lamb for this coming New Year’s Eve. So this recipe for slow roast lamb with ancho chilli and garlic marinade from Australian Cooking Up The Pantry is very apposite today. But beware, this dish will take around 6 hours in the oven.

a great big thank you to all the cooks featured this Christmas, and throughout 2016
have a very Merry Christmas
