Can I buy an E?

I really wish I could actually buy the L because I am so darn sick of this project!! I haven’t had much time to work on it so it is taking forever to get it done. *sigh* I desperately want to start a new project but I really don’t need another WIP *sigh*.
We have been working so hard on getting packages sent to our kids that we don’t even have a tree up – or any decorations at all. We do have cookies though because Scott baked several kinds. I think we decided to skip the tree this year. If we put it up now it would only be up for two weeks. It’s a lot of work to get it up for such a short time. I think Scott is a little depressed about it though.
I did make a cranberry crunch cake and then I made a gingerbread cake. 
We had the gingerbread at Bang! In Colorado – on DDD of course. I was dreaming about the cake the other day when it occurred to me that I could make one!! I looked online and Bang shared their recipe – yay!! If you make it be sure to serve it with whipped cream – makes all the difference in the world!!
 Skinnytaste has a new cookbook out – I checked it out from the library – love it!! I have made two recipes from it already – and plan on making several more. I will photocopy the recipes I like . I don’t like having cookbooks because when I plan my menu I don’t want to have to drag out a bunch of books. I have photocopied every recipe I use and stuck it in my book. She posted an older recipe on her blog – beef and barley soup. Holy cow is it fantastic!! I can’t wait to have it again – such a good rich flavor!!  
my camera doesn't do a very good job - it was delicious!!
Scott always writes my menu on the blackboard he made me - he has lovely handwriting. Some of the pictures he does are funny - I forgot to show you the Thanskgiving one on my last post....
Not much to chat about this blog but I do hope you all have a very merry Christmas.!!
Thanks for stopping by!  HO HO HO

  4. I love beef barley soup! I have 4ft potted prelit trees that I put out when I'm not hosting Christmas. A lot less decorating, that way yet I still have the joy of seeing the lights. I do leave mine out until February, though. LOL Only one more letter to go. You can do it!

  5. Since my girls have grown and moved out, we only put up a small 4 foot tree. The soup looks so yummy. I love the "E"!
