Mid-December Meal Plan

You may be in the middle of Hanukkah, you may be counting down the days to Christmas or Kwanzaa, or perhaps Winter Solstice is more your jam. For most people, some big holiday is sliding down the pike.
If I get one more email that starts with “Well, the holidays are going to look different this year,” I am going to throw my laptop into a lake. YES. WE KNOW. THE HOLIDAYS ARE GOING TO LOOK DIFFERENT. GOT IT.
If we are lucky enough to be thinking about holiday food, we are in good
shape . . . (Oh, and I think I am also done with the phrase “all things considered,” but you know . . . all things considered.) So, counting those blessings, here are some possibilities for those small, socially distanced holiday meals that I hope are in your near future. 

This silky soup leans on cumin and coriander, plus cayenne pepper for a bit of heat. It's finished with a splash of citrus to brighten it up and a generous pour of cream to give it lushness.

The classic, perfect baked ham—shiny with a tangy sweet glaze, crosshatched, tender. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Cheese-stuffed bread is a ridiculously appealing treat, and this version of filled biscuit features not one, not two, but THREE cheeses. If you want to pick just one cheese and save yourself a little trouble and fussiness, go for it. And if you want to use a very thinly sliced ham instead of Italian cured prosciutto, go for that, too. Refrigerated biscuit dough makes these a snap.

Empirical proof that ten minutes of prep time is all you need to make the most delicious sweet potatoes to round out a holiday or fall meal.

This substantial and satisfying vegetarian dish can serve as a main course or as a side.

This salad has so much going on in terms of color, flavor, and texture, and it has a definite fall/winter/holiday vibe. You can hit it with a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds for a final finesse.

Holidays and haystacks go hand in hand; I remember being introduced to haystacks by my friend Catherine in a Christmas cookie assort years ago and not understanding how I had missed them all my life. Peppermint bark adds holiday flavor and visual appeal to one of the best cookies of the season.
