I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Ours was blessed for certain. Here’s what I cooked up this holiday:
Looks good enough to eat right? I wouldn’t recommend it! It’s Chocolate Peppermint soap. I love handmade soap. In a previous life, I owned a soap making business. I used to whip up 5 to 10 pounds of soap 2 or 3 times per week. These days, maybe once or twice per year. I love to have it on hand for those last minute holiday gifts. I hope that following graduation – in oh say 17 weeks!!!! – I’ll have more time for hobbies. Remember those? Yea, me either 😉
I did find myself over indulging in sweets a bit much. Which is one reason why this…
was so exciting to find under the Christmas tree! Does Mr. Hero know how to make me happy or what? Have you checked out Practical Paleo yet? Well, you haven’t had the opportunity if you are a patron at my library… because I keep renewing! But good news for everyone else… I now have my own copy!!! Yay!!! **I’m actually excited enough to show you a real live picture from Christmas morning, sockmonkey pajamas and all.**
Here’s my week of recovery from holiday indulgence…
Saturday – Salmon & Gouda quiche
Sunday – Mustard Glazed Chicken Thighs, Green salad
Monday – Grilled steak w/ peppers & onions and snacks for the late night: roasted chick peas, popcorn, veggie plate for me
Tuesday – Pork & Sauerkraut for good luck!
Wednesday – Meatloaf burgers and veggies
Thursday – Fish and roasted sweet potatoes
Friday – Cheesy pizzas
Saturday – Baked chicken legs & garlic pasta with peas
Treat for the week: Banana Oatmeal Cookies
So are you in holiday recovery mode too? Or do you continue the holiday indulging all of the way through New Years? Or better yet, do you not over indulge at all?
