The holidays are a busy, busy time.
Wait…you are busy, right? I know I can’t be the only one. It seems like the month of December is one long holiday party, one long hectic work day, one long exhausting shopping excursion, or some horrifying combination of the three.
Or maybe those things are only horrifying and exhausting to us introverts of the world.
Any way you look at it, it is no minor miracle if I don’t spend the entire month eating cookies for dinner every night, thus wreaking havoc on my new year’s resolutions before they are even made.
This time of year, I like to turn to recipes that are comforting but also incredibly easy. If that recipe can be prepared at least in part ahead of time, all the better. If it is a perfect meal for entertaining, since you never know when people are going to stop by for a visit during the holidays…well, I might just consider never making anything else for the rest of eternity.
