Holiday Menu and Entertaining Tips

It's no secret we're still in an economic crisis and this year, people everywhere are looking for ways to stretch their holiday meal dollars without sacrificing taste or nutrition.

Moms who work and live on Midwest dairy farms, like Barb Liebenstein of Dundas, Minn., are working with the Midwest Dairy Council to share tips for delicious, nutrient-rich, money-smart holiday meals. Here are a few menu and entertaining tips from America's dairy farm moms:


  •          To save money, buy cheese in block form and slice or cube it yourself. Or use holiday cookie cutters to create festive shapes, and save the scraps for casseroles.

  •          Expecting overnight company? Serve a berry breakfast smoothie instead of empty-calorie gourmet pastries to maximize nutrition without breaking the bank.

  •          Plain, low-fat yogurt makes a great, calcium-rich base for holiday dips! Buy yogurt by the quart and save, then flavor with dry ranch seasoning or soup mixes and serve with veggies.

  •          Remember to serve milk with every meal, not just holiday cookies. At about 25 cents a glass, it packs a lot of nutrients for the money.

As you begin preparing your holiday meal shopping lists, consider money-saving tips and holiday recipes from Midwest dairy farm moms.  And, for a limited time, visit Dairy Makes Sense to print money-saving store coupons for milk, cheese and yogurt.
