Healthy Side Dish Recipes + Army Green Co-Ord

Happy FriYay loves! It's the Friday before Christmas - ahh! Today, I rounded up two holiday side dish recipes that are easy, quick and fun to make for the holidays. I've made them both before, and absolutely love them! They both involve buying minimal ingredients. They're delicious, and good for the body and soul. Have any holiday parties to attend this weekend? Need to bring something? I have one and I'm cooking one of these delicious dishes to bring. They both have beautiful presentations and make me hungry just talking about them. Enjoy!
