It’s go time. If you have people coming over for dinner tonight but no dinner planned, you need simple. And that means simple grocery shopping as well, so the following menu doesn’t have too many—or very difficult to find—ingredients.

Start with a punch (Mountain Moonshine Punch is something you can make ahead for guest self-service) and then bring them to the table for the following:


Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta, Balsamic, and Pecans

Mashed Potatoes

Salted Honey and Lemon Chess Pie

Of course, act like you had this planned all along. You got this.
