Don't rely on "sides" to round out the menu for vegetarian guests. This Vegetarian Christmas Menu is perfect for everyone.

Whew... are you glad last week is over as much as I am? Who sent out the memo that said every issue that needed to pop-up, needed to do so just days before Christmas? 

Luckily, I've already made plans -- at least in my mind -- about what I'm serving our small little family on Christmas Eve before we hit the road to make "the rounds". (Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like frantically driving from house to house to see family sprinkled throughout the southeast.) But I know for many people TODAY IS THE DAY. It's the largest shopping day of the year, I'm told. And history says it's also the day many of you finalize your Christmas menu. 

Deciding what to serve at Christmas comes easy for some -- it's routine, history, tradition. But if your family has changed and maybe the traditional beef tenderloin just doesn't fit your or your guest's appetite these days, this menu is for you (Or even if meat is on the menu, these delicious dishes help round out any Christmas menu and give everyone at the table equal opportunity to enjoy a healthy menu.) 

Here are our top choices from Healthy Aperture Bloggers for a Vegetarian Christmas Menu. Let us know what YOU plan to serve this holiday season!
