This holiday season, time and money may be in short supply, use creativity to turn small splurges into celebrations. Here are holiday ideas and recipes that won’t break the bank nor leave you exhausted afterwards.
A Tree Decorating Party
A holiday party doesn’t have to be fancy; any simple excuse to gather informally, like trimming the tree or decorating the house, will do. It’s a great way to include children in the festivities. Serve up mugs of chowder enriched with Irish Cheddar, plenty of bread and Irish butter, a salad and some Christmas cookies.
Gifts from the Kitchen
Give a gift of love and save money, too, with home-baked goods wrapped in pretty packaging. Use premium Irish butter to give everything you bake true buttery flavor and natural golden color. Kids would love to help with the decorating.
And for Every Holiday Get-Together, a Cheese and Wine Party
A universal favorite of guests and the easiest choice for the host is a cheese board. An assortment of Irish cheeses like Dubliner, Cashel Blue and Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with fresh fruit and chutney make a spectacular presentation.
The Family Holiday Dinner
And when all the festivities are over and energy levels are low, here is an easy dinner for two. Keep the main course simple with a no-fuss roast. Make a splash with a festive salad featuring creamy and elegant Cashel Blue Irish farmhouse cheese. Serve on your best china.
