{this moment} - Inspired by Soulemama. A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.




Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!
For more moments, hope over to Soulemama.

Menu Planning Monday - December 6th



Happy St. Nicholas Day!! (ok, i admit, we didnt do anything for it this year)

So here I am, again, finally. As I am sure for everyone, life is so busy and hectic right now! Our van died 2 weeks ago, so we haven't had a regular menu since, hence, me not posting one. But as we get into the "no car" routine here for the next few weeks, I'm finding that having a set menu, even if I have to shop more often, is even more crucial!


Monday: Asian Orange Chicken over brown rice
Tuesday: Grilled cheese and soup
Wednesday: One Dish Vegetarian Dinner
Thursday: Breakfast for dinner
Friday: Baked Teriyaki Chicken with rice and green beans
Saturday: Pizza night
Sunday: clueless - will update during the week!

My 2010 Christmas Baking List!

I know I haven't been around much - I'm still pretty much recovering from Thanksgiving, and having my in-laws here for 2 days as well as my sister-in-law and her family here for the day... I'm still wiped from it! WHEW! But I think a good time was had by all...

This is a very optimistic list - and this is the order I'll make them in (stuff that i don't mind not having done, is last). I haven't included that I'll be making a batch of crinkles for a friends fundraiser, as well as cookies (what ones?!?!) for my church's annual cookie sale. These I'll be baking first, tomorrow and this weekend.

I do have some small changes to a few of these recipes (no nuts in the cookies), but mostly, these are the tried and true cookies i grew up helping my dad baking at Christmas time. So....

LET THE BAKING BEGIN!!!
