Organize a holiday progressive dinner with friends or neighbors. Start with appetizers and cocktails at the first house, have soup, salad and bread at the second stop, the main course and perhaps a vegetable at the next, and dessert and coffee at the last. It's an easy way to share the cooking, plus you get to see everyone's holiday decorations.
