Ever have one of those days when the moment you woke up, things started going wrong? I woke this morning, not to an alarm clock. No, I woke when my body decided it was time to get up. I glanced at the alarm clock and it was flashing 3:27. At first it didn't register in my head. Then I shot up and flipped on the TV. It was 6:25!! My husband was supposed to be at work at 6:00. Now not that he's going to get into trouble or anything. But that just kinda sets the tone for the day....
Well not today. I am bound and determined this is not going to affect my day. I managed to get Kenny's lunch packed and coffee ready. I did Austin's job of emptying the litter for him so he had time to get ready. He normally gets up at 5:45 so he has time to shower, etc. So he was in panic mode. But he caught the bus. Whew!
So...I have to go to the grocery store. I decided that this week I was going to make it a little easier on myself. I planned a menu - GET OUT! Martha Stewart you say? No. Just Julie.
Monday: Chicken cutlets with Risi e bisi
Tuesday: Enchiladas and tossed salad
Wednesday: Chili and cornbread (thanks Penny!)
Thursday: Stuffed cabbage and mashed potatoes
Friday: Whatever...the boys are going to Kerry's for the weekend!
I already have 4 Christmas cookies baked and in the freezer. I made Ooey Gooey Chocolate cookies, Chocolate covered Lace Florentine cookies, Praline cookies and Ricotta cookies. Today I hope to find what I need to make these. And I need to make chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cup cookies. Then I should be done. Have you all seen this link? I found the recipe for the Ricotta cookies here and the Praline cookies. Check it out. I'm sure you'll find the recipe you've been looking for.
The Steelers won!! And instead of doing a blessing of the day, from now until Christmas, I will be posting a suggestion from a book I have called The Little Book of Christmas Joys.
Be the first to wish everyone you meet a Merry Christmas!
