Back in the Kitchen

MmM Leftovers.... GF Stir Fry with beef, onions, peppers and broccoli
I have gotten my cooking swag back on and I have been making more healthy dishes lately and I love how I feel after I cook...

One of my co-workers gave me this for Christmas, she made them last year too and they are sooo good, and addicting. Oh Yum...

Some Snowy Images of my House!
It's supposed to warm up this weekend so we can clean up some of that snow and make our house a bit more safe and less slippery.

Is your Christmas shopping all done?

2 Scrooges


So it's the MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR!!! I am in such a cheery mood and I love everything about the holidays... Except my holiday lights outside... I decorated and minimally because I worked with what I had and my neighborhood totally came back and made me look so sad... I have a few strands of lights and it looks like I need a little help. Of course the snow came and have made it look even worse... Oye Maybe next year...


Speaking of lights, yup the top of my tree lights went out... gotta fix that tonight....

BTW I can't find my mistletoe.... and I still need to get a wreath... and some more fire wood...

Now onto my 2 Scrooges...

Mike was being a scrooge christmas shopping from the iPad... I didn't ask him to go to the mall or Shoppers World I asked him to Christmas shop from the couch, in his pj's, with a carmel machiatto  ( that I made him) and he was being a grump...
Then grumpy scrooge # 1 got me to come and look at something, pulling me away from my christmas music and sugar cookie baking whilst Scrooge # 2 went into the kitchen and ate a huge chunk of sugar cookie dough off the counter....
That is the face of guilt... and the face of MmM mom that dough was delicious for the 5.2 seconds that I tasted it before I whoofed it down.


This was my breakfast after shoveling for longer than I expected. Not only did it snow on Saturday night, but it also rained and sleeted and so there was a thick layer of ICE on top of the snow making it hard to shovel and heavy to throw.. Oye... But Man that breakfast hit the spot!

How is Christmas Planning going in your house hold? Get any snow?
