Make feeding the family during the holidays easier with family size lasagna and homemade garlic bread.
Like most people, November and December are pretty busy for us. I feel like we are moving at light speed once Halloween is over. Not only do we have the normal busyness of Thanksgiving and Christmas, but we also have 6 family birthdays between November 14th and December 17th. I remember when I told my sister I was pregnant with our son and she replied, ” As long as he’s not born in November or December!” He was born November 21st.
Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and birthday parties, I do a lot of cooking in November and December. I’m always looking for a way to make feeding a crowd easier and Stouffers Family Size Lasagna does the trick. My family loves lasagna and it’s a very filling meal, but I hate making it. So I serve Stouffers and instead, I make homemade garlic bread.
I picked up a loaf of Italian bread at the Walmart bakery when I was shopping for the lasagna.
Just slice it in half lengthwise with a long bread knife.
Spread a mixture of garlic, butter, olive oil, and oregano on the bread. You can either bake it at this point or keep it for later. This is something you can make ahead.
I broil the bread with the loaf open until it’s golden brown. Just watch it so it doesn’t burn.
Serve the garlic bread with the Stouffer’s lasagna and a vegetable like roasted brussel sprouts. My family raves over this meal – even my dad loved it!
When I was at Walmart getting the items for my lasagna meal, I picked up a few other things to keep in the freezer for a few more easy meals during this busy season. Digiornio Pizza is great for a quick lunch!
I also bought this family sized macaroni and cheese for our Christmas Eve meal. My dad is grilling ribs and the macaroni and cheese will be the perfect side dish.
Of course, no meal is complete without dessert. My favorite holiday treat is Dreyer’s Slow Churned Light Ice Cream in Peppermint Wonderland. They also have A Very Merry Eggnog this time of year for those of you who love eggnog.
