Christmas is this week. I’ll be making two kinds of twice baked potatoes and ham for our Christmas dinner. Along with a batch of the yummy and easy to make quick dinner rolls.

We have lots of candy and cookies that I’ve made for dessert too.

We are having a snack dinner for tonight, Christmas Eve. It’s so easy to make. I love to have an easy to make dinner the night before Christmas, since I know I’ll be cooking a bunch on Christmas Day.

The rest of our menu is full of easy to make dinners. The pan fried pork chops are so easy to make. They turn out crisp and flavorful on the outside and juicy on the inside.

We love the sesame chicken recipe from Budget Bytes and we’ll be making that this week. 

And the garlic pork roast is fancy enough for the Christmas dinner but easy enough for even a busy weeknight meal. 

What are you having on Christmas?

  1. We always had a “snacky” type of dinner on Christmas Eve growing up…just a bunch of appetizers and Christmas cookies, since there would be a big dinner on Christmas Day. I’m doing the same thing this week for my family.

    Have a wonderful Christmas!
