Enjoy a Christmas dinner for a few people or for yourself!

25 mayo, 2021

On December 18, Mexico City and the State of Mexico returned to traffic lights due to the pandemic derived by covid-19, but it is synonymous with spending a sad Christmas.

With this restriction, many plans to reunite with family or friends have fallen apart, since we must take maximum care of ourselves, as well as our loved ones. So the recommendations not to hold meetings, much less parties, are still present and with much more insistence.

Without a doubt, this Christmas will be different for practically the whole planet, but that does not mean that we cannot enjoy a delicious dinner with the people with whom we share the home and even if we live alone.

There are hundreds of simple and delicious options to prepare at home and with which you will enjoy this date.

Some recommendations to spend the holidays

We know that a time to share with the family, but the current situation prevents us, so we have to rethink what contributes more, if repeat meetings or prevent.

What we must do is put in a balance what weighs more and consider “turning around” the celebration, giving it the purpose of being able to meet again later with loved ones.

Another option is to seek a closeness that is not physical, but emotional through video calls or, in the case of older people who do not have that possibility, call them on the landline as we did before and send gifts, in such a way that this time is enriched and makes it more bearable.

What to eat

And nothing better than for the soul than something delicious in a cozy atmosphere. If you are few people, you do not have to prepare turkey, so substitute it for a good recipe with chicken. Swap the cod for the tuna. Pasta is always welcome and there are many types of it and countless ways to do it. Don’t you want to run out of romeritos? In the supermarket they already sell them in clean bags and ready to prepare, so you can save yourself a laborious step. Salads, punch and dessert you can also show off without much effort.
