This year I was asked to organize the dinner for our Relief Society Christmas service activity. The women were coming to sew Christmas stockings and baby blankets, make jewelry, and an assortment of other creative things to ensure that a group of people that were suffering during this holiday season would each have at least a stocking full of small gifts. Dinner was not the focus of the evening, but nevertheless, I wanted it to be special for all these wonderful women. We were on a very tight budget so it took me some time to figure out what to serve that was delicious yet fairly simple. In the end it came together beautifully and everyone loved the meal. Since I’m sure there are some of you out there that are in the same situation of needing to orchestrate a meal for a large group… I thought I would share the menu and save you some hassle! Have fun! ~Brittany
served with dressing from Chicken Poppy Seed Salad

This entire dinner cost only $70 and that included all the main or unusual ingredients for the recipes. If you have more money available to you, I would add cheese to the salad (gorgonzola or even mozzarella would be delicious) and vanilla bean icecream would complement the eggnog bundt cake wonderfully.
