Paleo Holiday Movie-Watching Party Menu
It’s snowing — like, really snowing — here in Vermont. I’ve kept my commitment to 10,000 steps per day, so I’ve been enthusiastically enjoying my Northface boots and parka as I stomp through snow, slush, ice, and puddles in varying degrees of frozen treachery.

On a less creepy note, I’m also playing Christmas music while I work and mentally unwrapping our decorations so when I physically unpack the boxes on Friday, I’ll know just where everything goes. In short, it’s Christmas-y up in here.
On Saturday, we’re having a few friends over to watch It’s a Wonderful Life and Scrooge, the totally kickass, 1970 musical version of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with the delightful song “Thank you very much.”
(Super dorky side note: I once sang another song from the movie — “Happiness” — for an audition to be in our high school musical. My best friend told me it was gloomy. High school is awesome.)
I’m pretty excited about our party menu and thought you guys might want this menu for one of your holiday shindigs. Seasoned greetings to you! (Sorry.)
A Kickass Paleo Holiday Movie-Watching Menu
I wanted to serve delicious things that I could prep in advance without too much fuss and that would make everyone feel cozy, so I decided on:
Raw Veggies with Paleo Ranch for dipping
Salad with Zingy Ginger Dressing
Scotch Eggs w/ Kickin’ Cranberry Sauce & Olive Oil Mayo
Cranberry Waldorf Salad
