It’s sad, but true, our holiday trilogy must come to an end. Like all the great three-part masterpieces, we will be ending this one with a bang. For our last installment to our dinner and a movie holiday themed nights, we will be decking the halls, or the tables, with a few holiday recipes that are unstoppable, while watching some holiday classics. Get your last ounce of holiday cheer with us, because you won’t be dusting off these holiday flicks for another year. Join us for a happy dinner and a movie before the big holiday approaches!
Miracle on 34th Street + Stuffed Mushrooms (via Snixy Kitchen)
Well, if you don’t think this is one of the most hopeful holiday movies there is, than you probably don’t believe in Santa. First of all, Miracle on 34th Street is in Manhattan, during Christmas time. Enough said. Really though, this film about an old man who is put in a home for claiming to be Santa may just have you remembering the magic of the holidays like you are a kid again. Try this stuffed mushroom appetizer while watching, and don’t forget to share. After all, it is the season of giving.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer + Honey Glazed Ham (via The Recipe Critic)
We can’t leave Rudolph out of our holiday season dinner and a movie. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is the ultimate story of seeing the light (no pun intended) during the hectic holiday season. Even if you haven’t seen the movie, certainly you have already heard the song on Lite FM 16,000 times since Thanksgiving. Rudolph was the reindeer that was picked on, until he proved his weakness was a strength. Making a holiday feast is hard, but try out this honey glazed ham recipe!
The Santa Clause + Hot Chocolate Cookies (via Love From the Oven)
Last but most certainly not least, how would you feel if your dad was Santa? Check out Tim Allen in a holiday award winning (not really, but we think so) role as a man whose fate changes after he attempts to help a dead Santa, in The Santa Clause. Little does he know, the next man to put on Santa’s suit, becomes Santa himself. Never forget to leave Santa his cookies. This year, leave him hot chocolate cookies!
