Holiday dinner tips

Shop for holiday essentials ready for the table

The holiday season is in full swing, but is your kitchen ready? Shop for all of your pantry staples, holiday food ideas, and holiday desserts at your local Safeway.

When it comes to building holiday meals for a crowd, there are some time-tested shortcuts. Start with considering prepared sides instead of trying to cook everything from scratch. Heat and serve sides like mashed potatoes, mac and cheese and even meatloaf are available in the deli section. All you have to do is heat it up and bring it to the table. Your hungry crowd will take care of the rest.

This frees you up to work on the main course. A roast is a classic for a reason; tender meat tends to make quite an impression around the dinner table. When a roast is paired with pasta, rice or grains, you’re already on your way to a fantastic meal.

While the holiday meals often focus on tradition, you can always take things to the next level by creating new memories that will become the beginnings of new traditions. Plan your menu on your terms; we’re here to help. Shop online in the app or head down
