Christmas Week Menu

Well, friends – we’ve made it!  Christmas is upon us this very week and I am so excited. 


The fact that our Savior came to earth, lived a life as a human being just so that He could show His love for us, is simply amazing.  I pray that you and your family have a chance to ponder and enjoy the life-giving present we celebrate this Christmas season. 

Before we jump into our Christmas week menu, there are some highlights from our menu last week that I’d like to share:

Turkey Tetrazzini
{recipe on Wednesday}


Dark Chocolate Cherry Shortbread
{recipe on Tuesday}
