Simply Entertaining with Heidi Swanson!





'Tis the season for entertaining. Whether you are hosting people at your home or preparing a dish for a party, you are Simply Entertaining! Of course, the dish you prepare depends on many conditions.  Who will eat it?  How many? What are their likes and dislikes? All things to be considered for sure. However, one thing we know for sure is that simplified entertaining usually works best for all involved, both the cook and the guest.

This week we will be Simply Entertaining by either making a simple dish, a dish that holds well, or a dish that can be prepared (at least partially) hours before, or even a day before, your special event! As always, the dish you choose is entirely up to you! Please make your Simply Entertaining dish and post by Sunday, December 25th.

Please remember to link a thumbnail image and please leave a comment after you link so that we don't miss out on your dish.
