  3. Your menu sounds delicious! By the time I get home from working at school every day, I go the easy route for quick & easy recipes. My favorite is to pick up a rotisserie chicken and cook veggies at home. :)
    Thanks for stopping by Healthy Home Blog!

  7. Miz Helen, I never know what I will find when I come for a visit! I love that you are an "out of the box" thinker and doer! Getting ready for Christmas is such a busy time, but I love it. My little house has not had a tree in a couple of years, but this year we will not be treeless! Have a great weekend.
