Holiday Table Ideas

By

Everyone has their own ideas of what makes a great holiday table.

Some cannot veer from the classic turkey, spiral ham and sides combo.

And I understand that. I’m in touch with that.

Sometimes, holiday time is the only time of year you serve those dishes.

But, for some, the holiday table allows you to try something out of the ordinary and special like Chateaubriand or prime rib.

The most important thing is that your holiday table makes YOU happy.

Have you ever served a nice salmon or lobster on your holiday table?

How about lasagna?

Tell me, what are you serving on your holiday table this year?

Recipe for a Happy Life This Holiday Season

By

What really makes you happy?

For me, it’s good food, good people and gratefulness.

Here’s my RECIPE for a happy life during the holidays (and all year ‘round):

 

Add equal parts juicy steak and potatoes

Place happy, smiling people around my table

Sprinkle liberally a good dose of humility and thankfulness

 

That’s it.

It’s simple, really.

If we all focus on the truly wonderful things we have in this life, there’s no room for the negative.

I did mention steak, though, too, right? Make sure there’s steak.

Hungry people tend to be grumpy.

The taste of a perfectly grilled steak with its hearty, yet tender, flavor makes everything right in my world. The happiness recipe definitely calls for steak.

Enjoy the holidays with this recipe, friends! And be sure to share it!

Gift Ideas for Hard-to-Buy-For Folks

By

We’ve all got ‘em.

Those people on your gift list who either have everything or don’t like anything.

What do you get them at holiday time?

I always go with my gut. Literally. Food is something we ALL enjoy.

Give steaks!

Steak gifts always make a huge impression. And with all the variety of steaks out there – from ribeyes and T-bones, to filet mignon and Kobe beef – you can customize it so that it’s just right.

And if steak gift packages are too tall an order, just give ‘em a gift card and let THEM choose which steaks they like best.

Problem solved. It’ll be a happy holiday for all!
