Tonight has been busy packaging up presents for our families who live in Minnesota and Montana.  I heard tomorrow is the last day to send Christmas presents out if you want them to get where they need to get in time for Christmas.  We had to run to Target and pick up a few more packaging boxes. 

Dinner was yet again quick and easy.  We had leftover Beef and Barley Soup, so good and had a large spring mix and spinach salad with gorgonzola, chopped red bell peppers, red onion and shredded carrots.  It hit the spot.  We were thinking of maybe having leftover pizza from lunch for dinner, but when we opened our to-go box, there was a big hair in the box with the pizza.  Buzz kill, needless to say, we threw out over half our pizza (I’m sure my body is happy).  : (

Large salad.


I love salad and soup meals.


So warm and comforting


I couldn’t finish all my soup and I think I know why.  One word:  Peppermint Bark (okay, maybe two)!  I snacked on it all afternoon. 

After dinner we were craving something refreshing, so I made San Pellegrino waters with fresh squeezed lemon.  So tangy and bubbly!  If you don’t know what San Pellegrino is, it is basically a carbonated water.  We buy it in bulk packs at Costco.



We use a lot of fresh squeezed lemon in our house and this little guy is the best lemon squeezer I have found.  We found it at Williams Sonoma.  You get so much more juice form this one.  I wanted to share it with you guys, because it would make a great stocking stuffer or gift to your citrus loving family and friends!  : )  


Question:  What is your favorite small kitchen gadget?

    Most adorable puppy ever!!
    My fav. kitchen gadget is probably…gosh that’s hard! I usually just use knives, spatulas, and measuring cups!

    And the occasional can opener. So maybe that.
