Christmas 2010: Here’s Hoping It’s White

Of all the holiday meals, Christmas dinner is perhaps the most open to interpretation and, as such, the least tricky. The frenzy of Thanksgiving is over, the booziness of New Year’s Eve is yet to happen. You’re smack in the middle of, as the song goes, “the most wonderful time of the year.” To make it more wonderful, we have a dozen recipes—some brand new, others beloved LC classics—to dress up your table in style, from morning to night. Plan now, shop soon, prep early, and enjoy the day. That’s what we’re planning, and this menu can help you do the same. The only thing we can’t promise is that the day will be snow white. But hey, a boy can dream, can’t he?—David Leite
