weight watchers menu plan holidays on a budget

I’ve been stocking up for our big holiday meal all season and I love the challenge of entertaining a large crowd on a small budget.  This week, I thought it would be fun for us to share a favorite holiday recipe or your menu plan for the big Christmas dinner. It’s always fun to hear about what other families set out on the table at the holidays.

If you haven’t been stocking up, don’t stress too much. There are still some great sales this week that should make your holiday entertaining a little more frugal.
