Need help completing Christmas Menu

JBN | Dec 7, 201807:47 PM     42

I’m hosting Christmas this year, and will be making both lunch and dinner. For lunch I’m making chicken and rice, shaved Brussels sprout salad, and broccoli. I need help with the dinner menu. I want to make a pork loin roast with apple fig chutney, and roasted veggies (potatoes, carrots, green beans). I would like to have 1 or 2 more sides, but can’t decide on what. I’m thinking of another green, like spinach. Should I make a salad with it, or sauté it? Would it be weird to have 2 salads that day? Should I add another starchy side like cornbread or rolls? Would a corn casserole be too heavy? I came across a recipe for spinach mushroom polenta gratin, so it uses both spinach and corn. But would it be too rich? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
