Can I cook my meat the day before Christmas?
Absolutely yes. Roast your meats or poultry the day before and have a warm meal Christmas eve. Cut the roasted meats and poultry and pork into slices for the Christmas lunch. Serve with salads for the week. To keep wrap in cling foil and store in the fridge. Salads like potato salad can be kept the same way. Left overs make delicious light meals. Make condiments to go with the types of meat. Gravies for the sliced meat will warm them up nicely. Or warm up in the oven for a few minutes. Keep meats and salads that can be kept in fridge for the holiday week.
