At first glance, this gingerbread head may seem a tiny bit on the morbid side. But it’s actually cute. Cate received a gingerbread man cookie from a friend at school. She couldn’t wait to get home to eat it. After a few minutes of munching, she brought the head to me and told me she didn’t want to eat it. When I asked why, she simply replied, “I like him.” Apparently she didn’t like him enough to save his body, but I still thought it was pretty sweet.
Now begins the craziest two weeks of my year…both of my daughters’ birthdays are this week (only one day apart!), which just so happens to coincide with the already busiest time of year. Needless to say, we have a lot going on. I need to try to keep it VERY simple and realistic. Wish me luck.
- Paninis (I think this has been on my menu for a month!)
- Bistro chicken (chicken breasts browned in a skillet, remove & cook 1/2 c chopped onions 5 min, add 1 14oz can diced tomatoes, italian seasoning, 1 can of Campbell’s french onion soup, cook that together to reduce liquid 5 min, pour sauce over chicken in a casserole dish, add swiss cheese on top & bake for 20 min! I love this recipe – thanks to Jen Schulte! I like to serve with garlic mashed potatoes)
- Easy Apricot Chicken
- Eat out
- No idea…eat out or leftovers
- Green Noodles
Can’t wait to see what you are having for dinner this week. Remember, I don’t care how fancy or UN-fancy your menus is, I like to see all of them!
And Happy Hanukkah to all of our Jewish friends! Cate has been educating us about Hanukkah a lot lately, including singing “O Hanukkah, O Hanukkah, Come Light the Menorah” while Christmas tree shopping and making a star of David Christmas tree ornament at a church Christmas party. We’ve loved every minute of it!
