A little seasoning on the meat, a few roasted veggies and this plan will allow you time to party with your friends and have left overs to boot. Two people or twenty, this dinner comes together pretty easily using a mix of homemade food and purchased food.
Simplify your evening with these Fat and Happy easy moves:
> Pour your favorite jam over the top of the brie, serve with crackers
> Purchase a nut mixture or roast your own up to a week before the party.
> Roast the veggies a day or two ahead of time; allow to come to room temperature before serving.
> Serve a high-end potato chip and warm them in the oven.
> Set out potato buns with a simple horseradish dressing for sandwiches.
> Serve ice cream and store bought biscotti for dessert. Top with whipped cream and Baileys liquor just before serving.
Fat and Happy Food Blog Tips and Techniques: Talk to your local butcher, or the guy behind the meat counter- they will help you decide which cut of meat is right for you and how much to buy.
Cut a variety of root vegetables (potatoes, beets, turnips, leeks), drizzle with olive oil and fresh herbs (rosemary, thyme or your favorite herb.)
Roast in the oven at 400 degrees until the vegetables are fork tender.
Look for my left-over Roast Beef Tatar Tot Casserole posting for New Years Day to use up any remaining beef.
