Christmas Dinner Ideas and The BIG Holiday Outlet Sale (A Giveaway!)

December is the season for fabulous feasts. That time of the year that we go on a diet for. You know, to make room for all the food that we will partake of during all those parties and reunions that we will go to.

Nobody goes on a diet on December. The two words, while they start with the same letter, is simply antithetical. That is why every year, I rack my brain to come up with recipes that will knock everybody's socks off during Noche Buena and Media Noche. Of course there will always be roast beef, but it's always nice to have something new and exciting on the table next to it.

Next to food, family, and friends, it is also the season for shopping. Every year, I seem to forget how frenzied the crowd gets in the malls and it never fails to amaze me. Never mind if the sales come in before and after December and everything on the shelves is at full price, people seem to always do most of their holiday shopping in December. Those people, unfortunately, includes me. It's a good thing that my friend (the new mom), Mossy, told me about this huge 3-day sale starting on December 21, 2012, dubbed as the BIG Holiday Outlet Sale 2012
