I love this week. We all come up with some of the most fun meal and dessert items. I've made many of the recipes shared by my blogmates.
By the way, do you know there will be at least 7 books out by all of us between December and March? Actually, it might be 8…or 9...hmmm.
Krista, Cleo, and Victoria (MaryJane) all just had a release in December. Krista hit the New York Times paperback with her Murder, She Barked. Congrats, Krista!!!
Sheila, Lucy, Peg/Meg, Avery/Daryl will have books out in February and March. We're hoping we can have some of that magic rub off on us.
No matter what, we all need our sugar and/or chocolate to keep us going!
When it comes to Christmas, I like getting the kids involved. How else can you build memories?
It's important to me that kids like to cook. It helps them with chemistry (measuring); math (learning those fractions); and art (they have to make masterpieces with the sprinkles). They learn what flavors they like. They learn how lo-o-o-ong it takes to cook something and, thus, appreciate you more when you do slave over a hot stove.
Sometimes we put on Christmas music and sing. Most importantly, we laugh.
