This week’s allergen friendly meal plan and agenda focus on Christmas preparations and stocking the cupboards.
I’m feeling it! Feeling the holiday craziness. There are about a million things to get done.
Then last week I had a sick toddler. Half of my to-dos went out the window. Meal plans changed.
Then I overslept over an hour this morning! Deep breathes. It will all get done. My house just might be a disaster until January. I’ll keep this post short and sweet today.
The countdown to Christmas break is on! Two weeks to go. They will be packed. Then we can relax and enjoy celebrating the birth of our Savior.
I’ve got quite a few kitchen projects this week. They include:
- kettle corn granola (teacher gifts)
- hot cocoa (teacher gifts)
- cookies for preschool program
- einkorn Christmas cookies
- soaked graham crackers
- wheat graham crackers
- teff crackers
- sourdough bread
- render lard
I’m still trying to keep my Sunday pretty low key. My kids have Christmas program practice this morning and the program this evening. So there isn’t time for much anyway.
Last week I posted recipes for muffin tin mini pumpkin pot pies and how to turn a pork roast into ham. Both are so delicious and perfect for this time of year!
This week I’ve got a couple of fun, winter treats. You don’t want to miss them.
Meals this week are simple and mostly prep ahead since we’ll be coming and going a lot. I hope you enjoy this wonderful time of year and embrace the hustle and bustle of the season.
