A Scandinavina-styled Christmas Dinner for this Christmas
#ourtablestories | Vol 23
This year we just like the elves, busy preparing for the holiday. Every Christmas is the most joyful holiday I could ask for. People are busy at least a month ahead and getting gifts for their loved ones. And the meals are what friends and family looking for! Every year we need a Christmas dinner since it’s a tradition. However we decided to make a simple one. xoxo, Le Plain Canvas
Step 1 | Choose your appetizer
Your goal is to welcome guests with nibbles and drinks, not fill them up or get them too lubricated before the main event. One or two showstopping cheese and colorful crudités with a three-ingredient dip are plenty (Take a look at our mini morning cheese palette.) Serve it alone with this Earl Grey Punch, it is beautiful at the same time it tastes refreshing.
Step 2 | Choose your main
Let’s start with the main, we wanted a simple yet colorful centerpiece, thus we make a crown roast – Garlic Rosemary Chicken Cranberries. There is nothing better and easier than this simple one-pan baked chicken. All the comfort with little work.
Step 3 | Choose your sides
All of these one-skillet recipes can cook on the stove while the main dish is roasting, which means no jockeying for space and time in the oven. We decided to have two sides for this dinner, Pan-Seared Mushrooms with Cream and Dill goes especially well with chicken and Grilled Roots with homemade butter. This is the first time we made our first flavored butter using whole-grain mustard and fig.

It’s like the lights coming on at the end of a school dance. Stack everything in the sink and soak it in hot water and soap and relax. May the spirit of the Christmas fill your home with peace, joy, and love. HoHoHo! xoxo, the sisters.
