A Christmas Lunch Box Menu

Golden Chestnut Soup
Best Brussels Sprouts
a Clementine or Satsuma mandarin
Gingerbread Vegans with Icing & Sprinkles
Beverage: Silk Nog
Here's a warm welcome to the holidays -- a lunch box filled with traditional wintertime fare. Creamy, piping hot Golden Chestnut Soup warms the tummy and satisfies the soul. Brussels sprouts have long complemented chestnuts and this time is no exception; I find them addictive in this sweet, tangy sauce.

Clementines and Satsumas are sweet, seedless mandarin oranges that become available each year around Christmastime. Pick some up for a special holiday treat and old-time stocking stuffer.

The Gingerbread Vegans are most fun when they are packed along with some sprinkles and a miniature piping bag filled with icing, so the luncher can decorate the cookies right before eating them (see directions in the recipe below).

And finally, what would the holidays be without some soy nog? I think Silk brand soy nog is one of the best things in life. Really, give it a try -- it will nog your socks off (hee hee).

i LOVE the nog. It's a little pricey for such a small container, so this year for weeks I would go to the store and pine over it. So, finally, I broke down and bought a carton. Two days later, the power went out and I lost everything in the fridge. Blast!

In my house, the nog would have been gone in two days!

What are the point of vegans, they are basically picky eaters.

What is the point of posting something negative on a cool website like this or criticizing people who are trying to live a cruelty-free life? Guess you have nothing better to do with your time or your brain.

The chestnut soup sounds wonderful!
We Also LOVE silk nog at our house topped with a little fresh ground nutmeg. Thanks for the inspiration, Jennifer!

Another idea for an egg-nog substitute - try the Bolthouse Farms, Perfectly Protein Chai Tea. I know the name doesn't sound like it would taste like egg-nog but for me its very similar!! The product is vegan too. Very yummy stuff and on top of it, its full of plenty of vitamins and nutrients:)

I remember reading on a Bordon's
Egg Nog carton,"If's it Bordons, it
has to be good. So I purchased one and brought it home. Immediately after reading the ingredents,my wife said, "there's no nog in the nog", only a bunch of chemicals that I can't pronounce.
I wrote the company, but that didn't accomplish anything. Now, we
make our own from a 50 year old Betty Crocker receipt, it's great.
