On the 20th I am hosting a family Christmas dinner. Relatives are coming from far and wide. We will probably have about 20 people.
My wonderful grandma (matriarch of the family) has generously offered to pay for all the food, and I need to get it all at Costco. Budget is not an issue and grandma has a sophisticated palate. I'd love any help with menu planning.
I am thinking beef, probably prime rib, but I'm open to anything besides ham. I have two ovens so cooking/baking space will not be an issue. Will also do steamed green beans and beyond that, I have no idea. I have 3 young children and little time, so I need easy-to-prepare foods.
Specifically looking for:
basic appetizer/hors d'oeuvres
main dish (protein)
I shop at the Costco off of Rosecrans in Hawthorne.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for any advice!
