Merry Christmas!

Happy holidays everyone!  I wrote this post a few days ago so I could enjoy spending time with family today, but this illustration shows my secret wish of fancy hot cocoa packets appearing in my Christmas stocking.  I'll let you know if I lucked out.


Sweet Coffee

Last week's luncheon ended with tasty coffee in dainty cups.  Well, at least I heard it was tasty.  I'm not a coffee drinker, though I almost became one just to hold that beautiful china.


Craving Fresh Veggies

A big bowl of fresh veggies was served at the luncheon I attended earlier this week.  It was simply large cuts of cucumber, red and orange pepper, olives, and onions covered in lemon juice and olive oil.  Feta cheese was served on the side.  I can't tell you how yummy it was.  I really miss being able to run out to the garden for fresh vegetables (I say this as we're being blasted by a blizzard!).


A Fancy Luncheon

I was invited to a lovely luncheon on Monday and just wooed over the sweetness of it.  We had three beautiful courses on the most dainty china.  Amazing tomato basil soup, scrumptious squash lasagna with fresh vegetables, plus a fabulously rich cake.  I'm still dreaming about it.  Thanks for the invitation Lois.


Bye Little One

Though I really don't eat very many any more, it's a little sad that I won't be able to enjoy a frozen twinkie in the future. Oh hum.


Yummy Granola Bars!

A perk from attending Camp Blogaway is all the neat giveaways from different food companies.  Sunbelt Bakery was one of those generous lads.  A couple of months ago they sent my family a wonderful sampler of granola bars.  My husband is already a big fan of Sunbelt (buying them for school lunches), but this gave us an opportunity to try some new flavors including peanut butter chip, fudge dipped coconut, raspberry and golden almond.  Though they were all good my daughter picked raspberry as her favorite and my son loved the golden almond.  A big thanks to Sunbelt Bakery for sharing their goodies with us!
