Hi everyone! I’m so excited, it’s Christmas week!! The boys are finished school and my daughter is coming home TODAY! She is managing to get home a day earlier than expected, woohoo!! Best news ever. I asked her which recipe she was most looking forward to me making for her and she said she is craving is our Pepper Swiss Cheese Ball. I originally shared this family favorite recipe back on my blog in 2009. Will definitely have to get a better picture of it this year for sure. It’s absolutely delicious!
Christmas Menu Planning:
This is the week to be organized my friends! If you haven’t checked out my Christmas Menu Planning Made Simple post, do that now to get simple tips, recipes and printables! It all comes down to the planning. I’ve got my lists printed off and clipped behind that are all of my printed recipes. I’m ready…it’s easier for me and easier for delegating tasks too so everyone can pitch in and help! Grocery shopping happens today. Keep meals leading up to Christmas as easy as you can.
I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful week!! Remember the more organized you are the more time you’ll have for relaxing and visiting 🙂
Merry Christmas everyone!!
