Not festive enough?

Allenkii | Dec 22, 2013 07:18 PM

Ok, so here is my dilemma - this year for Christmas we only have my sister in law, her husband and our best friends (couple with a 5year old) over. Nothing formal - just the 6 of us and last minute celebration.

I usually cook huge holiday dinners with lots and lots of food. This year I wanted to take it easy. I have many grass finished blade steaks in the freezer. I was thinking of cutting them up, and making a beef stew, serving over mashed potatoes with some roasted veggies, green salad, etc. Now, my husband keeps saying its not festive enough and I should at a very least be making a roast...what do you think? Am I crazy for wanting to use up those blade steaks for holiday dinner?
