Small Successes


1. Followed through on Crunchy Mamma's suggestion in her post below. Great idea! This should be an even better Advent and Christmas season for all.

2. Realized we needed a short break to reassess where we are at for school and some other urgent necessary items around here. So, our 1/2 day off for the end of Q1 (I need time to get papers together) will be 1/2 day on TH and F. Essentials are getting done and next week we'll start Q2 off with a bang.

3. Continuing with my resolution to make one new recipe MOST weeks. I'm not going to complicate my life with this one. Just trying to spice it up - no pun intended.

Last week - a potato/dairy free cheese combo. 1/2 loved it 1/2 hated it. It's only side dish, so I'll add it to my list but it won't appear frequently.

This week - Beef Lo Mein. This was a hit. This was easy. This is now on my list!

Sorry I haven't been commenting as of late, but I'm feeling better and aiming to be back! Love what you two ladies have to say!

What a great idea to add a new recipe each week. I did this a few years ago and really enjoyed it. I think I might give it another go. Thanks for sharing and God bless!
