Christmas Dinner for 2

A few years ago I attempted to make a full on Thanksgiving dinner for just me and my husband.  I made a roast instead of a turkey as it seemed a bit less intimating and much less meat, and I made all the sides I used to have back home. It was very yummy... but so... much... food... We were eating leftovers forever.  After that, I vowed to never bake another full holiday dinner... queue this Christmas.

I have a few days off of work from the holidays and decided to make a nice dinner for just the 2 of us. I found the smallest turkey breast I could and started planning a menu - heavily based off of Pioneer Woman recipes :-)
  • Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast - except leaving the skin on. Really, who doesn't want some yummy skin!
  • Oven-Roasted Asparagus - this is one of the very few veggies Mr. Kiwi will eat. He even REQUESTED it!
  • Roasted Potatoes - this is the hubby's job (I promise this is the last 'roasted' item on the menu)
  • Macaroni & Cheese - OK, not exactly traditional, but this recipe is sooo good!
  • Steamed Rice - We always had rice and gravy growing up and it was my favorite. yuuummmmm
  • Homemade Rolls - recipe out of the Betty Crocker Cookbook 

So that's the plan anyway.  I'll be cooking up a storm on Christmas Eve :-)
