As Meiler has gradually been taking over the holiday cooking responsibility from his dad, he has started to introduce a few new items such as a root vegetable hash or greens like kale or mustard greens. For the Christmas season, Meiler goes off tradition and designs a menu consisting of prime rib roast, mashed red potatoes, buttered carrots and pasta salad.

The most important item on the menu for his holiday season is family time spent together with everyone reuniting back in north Georgia.
