Oh My Gosh!!! I can’t believe we only have a little over a week left before Christmas is here. Although it’s exhausting getting everything together for the holidays I still get excited and look forward to spending time with the family. Although I’m local I’m originally from Oklahoma, so I don’t always get to go home for the holidays. This year we’ve decided to drive to Valdosta, Ga to spend time with my husband Ronnie’s family and enjoy the flavors of the South. Although the immediate families not huge all the friend that join us make up the difference.


Normally I don’t have to cook, with our choice of everything from homemade cakes and pies, to ham, turkey and all the fixings why would I want to ruin a good thing. We always leave Georgia stuffed and sleepy.

However; this year my husband asked me to cook something so we can have some food at home. Since I haven’t cooked a holiday meal in almost 10 years I’ve opted to do something a little different and break holiday tradition. I’m thinking of doing a seafood boil instead of the traditional ham or turkey.


Here’s my menu so far:

Blue crabs or Crab legs (which ever is available)


Smoked Sausage



I think my menu still needs work so if anybody has any suggestions or a recipe I would be forever grateful!!


Although my holiday meal isn’t traditional Winn Dixie is helping make holiday planning and meal preparation a little easier with the Winn-Dixie Holiday Website.  Full of simple and delicious recipes with everything from entertaining ideas to how to videos.
