Christmas Dinner Pre-Orders Now Open!
Whether you’re hosting an intimate dinner or a family feast, we’ve got the turkey and all the trimmings you need to enjoy Christmas with your loved ones. Pre-order by December 20 for pickup on December 22–23.
You don’t have to prepare a huge feast for your meal to be fancy. If you are dining solo or with a friend, skip the take-out and enjoy a healthy home-cooked meal instead. We’ll get you started with some of our best recipes for one or two.
Freeze ahead ingredients.
Cut down recipes. Casserole recipes can either be cut in half and baked or, after making the whole recipe, divided into smaller pans before baking. Eat one and freeze the others. This is not recommended for baking recipes.
Use smaller equipment. Heat-proof ramekins, muffin tins and small loaf pans are great ways to portion out recipes before baking. Leftovers are then already perfectly sized for freezing.

Use smaller appliances. Using a toaster oven, barbecue, small slow cooker, or hot plate are not only great ways to cook smaller amounts of food but are also excellent energy savers.
Be aware of food safety. Learn how long foods can safely be kept in your refrigerator to eat on another day as leftovers. Most cooked food should be eaten within 3 or 4 days. However, hard-cooked and refrigerated eggs in their shells are good for up to 1 week.
Use parts of cans of food. If you only need part of a can of food for a recipe, refrigerate the rest or freeze for later use. Leftover canned food can be refrigerated, out of the can, for up to 2 days or frozen up to 1 month in a refrigerator freezer or 6 months in a chest freezer. The texture may be softer after thawing.
