Menu Monday

Things are a little more Christmas-y at our house. M & S put a tree up in her room & decorated the mantle. 

M is off this week, so I have more time in the kitchen. Our meals are

Sunday-homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese. Perfect for a gloomy, rainy day.

Monday-Paula Deen's wild rice and shrimp casserole

Tuesday-soup/chili dinner at the in-laws. I'm contributing Mexican cornbread and a chocolate cake. M says he is making sausage balls too.

Wednesday-Jenna's white chicken chili (

Thursday-either leftovers or salmon and veggies

Friday-whatever we don't have Thursday-or pizza

Saturday-breakfast for dinner!!

Merry Christmas!

Bah Humbug

I'm a Grinch!  Yes, for some reason my heart is two sizes too small this Chrustmas season.  It's really much more ambivalent than disliking Christmas. 

I have no desire to decorate-we have none put up yet, and have decided not to put up the tree more because of two run amucks (anyone else think of Hocus Pocus when you hear the work amuck-ok, I'll stop mixing seasons). Our plan is to decorate the mantle and put the aluminum tree in S's room. And I really need to get on this. I'm pretty sure M would let it slide and S doesn't seem to notice. Honestly, I'm so close to just handing over the presents this year.

Tomorrow is our special musical service at church. It'll be the 1 year anniversary of F & C's baptism. And we are going to the special music performance at my in-laws church tomorrow night. A said she wanted to see Christmas lights next Saturday, so we will do that. Maybe I can even talk M into going by Starbucks for a hot chocolate treat. Hopefully by then I will be in a better Christmas mood.

Dr. Scholl's Cozy Cushions (sponsored)

NA few weeks ago my family we to see the Christmas lights at Dollywood. It's very chilly right now and I was looking for some extra warmth and cushioning in my boots. Luckily, I had some Dr. Scholl's Cozy Cushions. They were perfect for our night of walking around looking at lights-my feet didn't hurt and they stayed warm!!

Getting them out!

So soft in my boots!

Enjoyed walking around looking at this!

I received my Dr. School's Cozy Cushions complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. The post is sponsored, but opinions are my own.
