The Holidays // a plant based menu

IMG_2948.jpg
One of my favorite things about the Holidays is the Menu planning. I mean, duh, this is a food blog and all- of course food would take center stage!

Not only do I love developing a menu where all the courses flow and compliment one another, I love designing the table. It makes our everyday table feel a little more special.

Flowers or herbs, greenery, votives and printed menus always make an appearance.

My menu planning typically starts about 3 weeks prior to the holiday. I like to include snacks prior to dinner, cocktails, soup or salad, main entree, sides and dessert.

Christmas is a little different for us- we head to my Dad's Christmas Eve, to my Mom's Christmas Morning and Dinner for Justin and I at home with Brody + Spence.

In today's post I am sharing some of my favorite recipes that will hopefully inspire your Plant Based Holiday Menu.

Ever since I can remember our Christmas Mornings have always started with Hot Cocoa and Cinnamon Rolls - a tradition that is set in stone.
