Suggestions to Simplify Your Holiday Season
Meal Planning Every Day Dinners During The Holiday Season
During the holiday season I take a few minutes each week to plan our meals. As I set the plans in place I look for simple, wholesome, comforting meals. Dinnertime is an important part of the day for our family to gather together an be nourished body and soul. It is a time of connection that is even more important during a season of visiting relatives and holiday activities.

Jonathan was most excited about the gigantic seafood platters! If you want some wonderful platters to impress over the holidays they have you covered.
If you have a lot of company arriving on Wednesday consider ordering some platters for a snacky dinner. You don’t have to cook or go to a restaurant! Just enjoy the company, some wonderful food, and get ready for Thursday.
We spent the most time hanging out with the butchers. Smoked turkey, prime rib, seafood dips! It was all sensational. Albertsons had a wide variety of meats on offer for the Holiday Season. If you need special ingredients for a homemade meal or need to order a full dinner they are a one stop shop!
