The holidays are officially over. After two weeks of rich meals, sweet treats and snacks at any time of the day, it’s time to look ahead to a slightly lighter and more balanced diet. Grilled vegetables, meal-sized salads and flavourful fish tacos are a great way to start.
Long live the holidays! This is the time of year when large family gatherings are spread out in between days lounging in pajamas, snow-filled activities and cozying up on the sofa to catch up on favourite TV shows. For a gourmet holiday, make some sweet snacks, leftover lunches and hot drinks. Even the kids will get into the cooking spirit!
There are only a few days left before the house fills up with the aromas of holiday cooking and guests knocking at the door! This week is a good time to focus on making simple dishes before finishing up all your festive planning (and shopping). Vegetarian pasta, Mediterranean-style fish and sheet-pan meals are all on the menu.
Between office parties, that pre-holiday workload and the children’s excitement growing with each passing day, it’s good to take a moment in all the madness to relax and prepare simple meals: a curry in a hurry, an exotic chicken dish and a reinvented classic.
With the arrival of December, the whirlwind of holiday preparations starts to gear up. Between Christmas shopping and putting up decorations, it’s important to take the time to sit down and eat as a family. This week, make a quick and easy chili, enjoy the freshly-arrived clementine season and be inspired by our neighbours to the south.
