Last Minute Christmas Menu Ideas

I know many of you have your Christmas menus planned, but if you don’t, or if you are looking for some last minute inspiration (which seems to be the boat a few people are in based on the amount of Google search traffic I am receiving today) I thought I would share a few of my favourite recipes to help out.  There are options for breakfasts, appetisers, entrees, mains and desserts. Some are quick and easy to whip up, while some require a little more effort, but hopefully they offer you inspiration for that last minute addition to your Christmas menu.

Finally, I’d like to wish all of my readers a very Merry Christmas!! Thank you for your love and support this year.  It really means so much to me. I hope you all have a wonderful day and that all of your Christmas wishes come true.
