Well, Thanksgiving weekend has come to a close – the leftovers have all been eaten, the sweet treats have magically disappeared and I’m getting excited to slide into the next season. The outdoor furniture has been covered and most activities are taking place indoors on these chilly days.
I’ve actually started my Christmas shopping – trying to do everything either locally or online. I’d like to finish up and get the wrapping going so there’s not a mad dash at the end. I’ve been diligently working on a few gifts that I’m making and I’m planning on making cookie dough and breads to freeze.
Of course, we’ll be baking our classic holiday cookies this year but I wanted to try out a few healthier versions – light or no sugar, gluten free. I’ll let you know if any of them are worthy of passing on.
Look what I found at the thrift store for just $1.50 – what a find! I love Ina and all the tasty dishes she makes so I just couldn’t resist.
I’m usually not much of a shopper but I love white bowls and pitchers.
When I found this beauty at HomeGoods recently, I couldn’t resist.
Well, after a marathon of pie, cake, stuffing and gravy, I'm looking toward good, home-cooked healthy meals again. I found this fabulous spinach at the last outdoor farmer's market
and made a pot of delicious chicken soup with wild rice and spinach. Simple but, oh so good!
And what plans have you been making for the upcoming month? Have you started your shopping yet or will you be making a lot of your gifts this year? I think people love getting something made by hand or home baked, don’t you?
Wishing you all a lovely week and as always, thanks so much for visiting me.
