... my MIL. She's an RD, an excellent cook, and a very judgmental woman. I am hosting her and twelve others from my husband's family the day after Christmas... in my 950 sq foot house and I am STRESSED. Luckily, an aunt is bringing the ham. But I have to provide some knock-your-socks-off side dishes. And while I am a decent cook, I need some serious inspiration.
Does anyone have any great holiday side dish recipes -- veggies, etc. -- that I can wow with, but not be so complicated that I stress out and open a bottle of wine too early? ;) Please share. All my recipes look so blah right now. If MIL makes one negative comment in front of everyone, I might throw a pie at her. But I prefer not to.
