Yesterday marked the first day of December which means that the holiday season is upon us. My house is decorated and all that is missing is the tree. No matter how many Christmas decorations I put up around my house, it simply does not feel complete under we put up our tree and fill the house with the beautiful scent of evergreen.
Unfortunately, my husband refused to get a tree until the calendar read December. Well, it’s December 2 and we still don’t have a tree. That means we’re waking up tomorrow morning to shop for a tree. By tomorrow afternoon, I will finally have a decorated tree in the house and my life will be complete.
Not only is my personal life being filled with the sights, sounds, and tastes of the holiday season, my work life is as well. This week, the Mom It Forward team researched and put together a holiday dinner menu that is guaranteed to please. Everything from an appetizer and main entree, to a dessert and festive beverage, we have all of your dining needs covered.
Yesterday I prepared the entire feast and photographed all of the yummy goodness. Today, I’m featuring the appetizer that is bound to be a big hit at your holiday dinner: Goat Cheese Balls with Herbs, Pecans, and Bacon. Not only are they easy to prepare, they are way too cute, easy-to-eat, and bursting with flavor. Trust me, I just ate five of them in the past two minutes. They are way too good.
To make some of your own goat cheese balls, please be sure to stop by the Mom It Forward website to grab the recipe! Next week, I’ll be sharing the main entree: a simple and delectable prime rib roast that comes together in a matter of minutes and cooks in a matter of a few hours.
