Menu Plan–December 18


‘Twas the week before Christmas and all through the house, no one was stressing not even me! 

The presents are wrapped and under the tree,
in hopes that our Christmas shopping is through for this year. 

The cookies are nestled in airtight containers –
while dreams of sugar cookies & chocolate ones dance in our heads.

And SnoWhite with her apron and Frog Prince with his cutting board,
have just hung up their duds for some Christmas relaxation! 

We are looking forward to a nice week leading up to Christmas!  We hope you are too.  You’ll see lunches on our menu since we’ll both be home to eat this week. 

By the way… will you be joining us for the countdown to 2012
