Spreading the Christmans Cheer

I am lucky I have smart friends, I’m not sure where I would be without smart people giving me ideas. This idea of a Christmas post came from my beautiful friend Jac….. I think she just wanted me to tell her what should be on her Xmas table so I thought I’d help you all out with some ideas. I made loads of fabulous things last Xmas like Apricot & Pistachio Balls, Paleo-ish Rum Balls, Gingerbread and loads more but I don’t have time this year before Xmas to create, write recipes & take photos of all the things that will be on our Christmas menu. I thought instead I would share with you some great recipes from some of my favorite bloggers to help keep your festive season tasty without the guilt. Here goes…

SIDE DISHES
Maple Roasted Butternut Squash
Stuffing
Cauliflower Fried Rice
Quinoa Apple & Kale Salad
Raw Pad Thai
Warm Roasted Fennel Salad with Orange & Mint
Roasted Baby Carrots with Pomegranate, Pistachios & Hummus
Green Bean Salad with Lemon Dijon Dressing

MEAT DISHES
Steak Skewers with Cherry BBQ Sauce
Slow Cooked Lamb Shoulder with Blackcurrant Glaze
Roast Turkey
Whole Baked Fish with Lemon Salt & Aioli
Spicy Grilled Prawn Skewers

SWEET TREATS
Christmas Pudding
Coconut Cream Pie & Berries
Chocolate Tart
Sticky Date Pudding

So there’s a heap of things to get you started & I am sure that you will find loads more on those blogs too. Remember, the supermarket will only be closed for 1-2 days over the Christmas break, there is no need to eat like you are about to enter a famine.
