Christmas Dinner 2014

 Yesterday we had perhaps the best Christmas dinner ever.  Everything turned out well and was so delicious!  I am posting these recipes and links now, before I forget what we served! This was our menu:
Christmas Dinner 2014
Rosemary Pork Roast
Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes
Whipped Butternut Squash
Petite Peas
Paradise Cran-Applesauce
Ice Cream
Christmas Cookie and Fudge Tray

I have links for the pork roast, the mashed potatoes, the squash and the cran-applesauce.
The Rosemary Pork Roast is so delicious and very easy to prepare.  You thicken the pan juices for gravy and it is yummy.

The Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes recipe is my go-to for any large holiday meal that requires mashed potatoes.

Usually I just wing it when it comes to preparing squash.  But I remembered seeing this recipe: Whipped Butternut Squash in an older Taste of Home magazine and decided to try it.  It was wonderful!

And this Paradise Cran-Applesauce recipe makes a beautiful and lovely side dish that would also be good with turkey or chicken.  No spices; just the wonderful, unadulterated flavors of apples and cranberries.

I have put all of these recipes in my Christmas notebook for next year.  If you are in need of a tried-and-true Christmas dinner menu, you might like to do the same!
