My Christmas Menu 2011 – and A Post For YOUR Christmas Wishes!


Please leave your Christmas Wishes for the Southern Plate family in the comments section on this post! Thank you!


I hope you are having a wonderful holiday and I hope you all have an abundance of Christmas in your heart! I wanted to send you our Christmas card and share with you what I’ll be serving on Christmas day when my parents, my in laws, and some dear friends come to have lunch with us.

I’m smoking a pork loin as the entree – so that part is taken care of. The rest of my menu is a broad mix made up of everyone’s special requests! I’m also listing some additional ideas at the bottom in case you are looking for that one extra dish to add.

Please have a wonderful Christmas and remember, it’s not about what is under the tree, but the people around it :)

    The only thing I asked my husband to buy me for Christmas was your book. And might I add just how glad I am I did. I love the cookbook sooooo much. I think the part I love the best is the stories that you put in it. I am not a great cook by no means but I try. Thank you for the simple recipes and the love that is obvious you put into it.

    Christy, I think your Granny’s Sheath Cake is the best chocolate cake I’ve ever eater/made. I want to make it for a birthday cake. Do you think it would translate to a layer cake?

    Many thanks for the GREAT recipe!
