This year, we chose to spend Thanksgiving at home. With sick kiddos, it just made sense! Thankfully, they are doing great now! But, they shared the bug with us. Boo! No one wants to get their bah-humbug on around the holidays. I don't know about you, but I kindof consider the entire time from Thanksgiving leading up to Christmas and New Years as "the holidays" collectively. So, for real- we want to spend as much of the holidays at home as we can! We already did Thanksgiving at home, and amazingly, it was really special with just the five of us.
I wanted to make a special meal for Josh for the two of us to share some time together around the holidays' busy and craziness! One problem: He works in the morning, and I work every afternoon and evening. It's so hectic when I get home from work- and not for a bad reason! The kids want to say hi, and we're usually catching up on what's going on from that day. However, there's just not much time left for the two of us. So, enter in the plan for a dinner for just the two of us. Josh fed the kiddos dinner and had everything all ready for a sweet little moment together.
Allow me to introduce these tasty little bites-
Roasted Pomegranate and Balsamic Brie Crostini
Simple yet full of flavor.
To add these to your table:
1 Toast a sliced baguette, lightly drizzled with olive oil, for 2 minutes.
2 Gently spread brie on the slices
3 Toast 1 more minute
4 Sprinkle pomegranate arils on each crostini slice & plate
5 Drizzle balsamic vinegar dressing across the dish
I love pot pies. There is something so warm and cozy about them; it's comfort in a golden, flaky crust. I added a sprig of rosemary, just for fun. It made it feel fancy yet not too over-the-top. I made sure to pick up the Marie Callender's Turkey Pot Pies while I was at Walmart- one stop shopping made super easy! (They're only $2.57 right now too!)
I have so many wonderful memories of yummy food from when I was a kid. I am so excited to be able to now make memories of my own that Josh can share in too! What better than a tasty pot pie to create it around?
This Holiday season, add Marie Callender's Pot Pies to your list to save yourself some stress, and add some delicious golden flaky goodness to your home! Which flavor would you put on your table?
