Elegant Christmas Menu

Enjoy your Holiday dinner with this easy menu that is perfect for large or small dinner parties!  The appetizers are very simple to put together, the cheesecake needs to be made ahead of time, the oven does almost all of the work for the standing rib roast except for carving itself and the salad uses a purchased dressing and most of the components for the salad can be prepped ahead of time so all  you have to do is cut the pear, toss the salad and plate! If you want to make it even easier make baked potatoes instead of the Cheesy Creamy Mashed Potatoes with Truffle Oil.   If you can’t find or want a less expensive red wine for dinner try some of my suggestions in the Easy Standing Rib Roast recipe.
