Aside from the main meal that is turkey and all the trimmings, here are just some ideas on what to have for appetizers, desserts and drinks. Let’s go!

Snikt-A-Bobs and Jean Grey Goose Martinis

Next up, if Wolverine and Jean Grey are coming to your holiday party, best to have these two recipes on hand. What a better way to spice up your holiday table than some shish kabobs Yakitori style? Then slowly get into the holiday mood with a Grey Goose martini with hints of orange citrus. Fontina Turner (Bacon and Legs) has us covered with her recipes here!
