DoveTailing Tips

Make an extra batch of corn bread. When cool, crumble to use on Day 3 in the Enchilada Meatballs. You will need 2 cups of crumbs.

Bake the potatoes for The Irish Potatoes, and bake extra (a total of 13 large potatoes) to use for Day 5, Cheesy Potato Boats. Cool, then refrigerate for Day 2.

If you have time, make the Cranberry Lemon Curd recipe from Day 2 and refrigerate.

DoveTailing Tips

Remove 8 of the potatoes you baked on Day 1. Remove the skins and grate or dice to use in The Irish Potatoes. Remove the remaining 5 potatoes and prepare them according to the recipe on Day 5, Cheesy Potato Boats. Don’t bake them, but cover and refrigerate so they are ready to bake on Christmas Day.

With the leftover Pound Cake, top it with Cranberry Lemon Curd for a ready-made dessert.

DoveTailing Tips

Prepare as much as you can today for Christmas Dinner tomorrow. Your Potato Boats are already ready. Bake the Cinnamon Stars. Prepare the broccoli, cauliflower and onions for the salad. Mix up the dressing and store it in an airtight container. Prepare the glaze for the Cornish hens and tie the legs of the hens together.
