We're in the thick of the "holiday season." Prepare for an all-out assault of "Frosty the Snowman" over the loudspeakers, jewelry and sweater commercials on T.V., and The Grinch around every corner (go classic or go home).
Which brings us to the theme of this dinner tonight: Green is Good. We're not talking the bright, refreshing arugula salad of July's heatwave; rather a hearty meal of warm, filling broccoli soup and a sweet-tart kale salad. Check off all your vitamins and minerals in one fell swoop and feel good while doing it.
Because gnawing on a candy cane in front of 25 Days of Christmas does not constitute dinner. Though it certainly counts as dessert.
