Okay, so I tend to do fruit as a side for dinner quite a bit. Growing up, the meals were always meat, veggie, starch. I don’t exactly stick to that anymore, but when I do have a meal like that, fruit is a great side. For example, I made Shepherd’s Pie last week which has meat, veggie, starch all in one. This was a perfect side. It would go great as a side dish to the traditional Christmas ham! Super quick, super easy, and it makes your house smell delicious. Recipe from www.allrecipes.com.
