It's Christmas week!! We love Christmas week around here, and enjoy celebrating the birth of Christ. While Dec. 25th is not His actual birthday, it's the day we set aside to celebrate the coming of our Savior to earth; Emmanuel - God with us.
Last week, our well-intended menu plan got thrown out the window. Frog Prince got a cold (which he so kindly gave to me), and so we ended up pushing our Life Group Christmas party into the new year. We did end up eating:
(perfect for a last minute gift!!)

My regular posting over the next couple of weeks will be more sparse, as I'm taking some time off to celebrate Christmas with family and friends.
But, to count down to 2010 I'll be scheduling posts that recap our favorite recipes from the last year!
Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
