Cooking meals gets harder and harder to do this time of year. Between having more events on our calendar, and having more activities to fit in (shopping!), cooking tends to get squeezed out. That's why it's even more important to have a menu and to grocery shop. If I didn't have a menu and the foods with which to cook in my pantry, I'd surely be ordering out every night. Not good for the budget or for our health.
This week I'll also add baking to the things to do. Last year I posted a lot of our traditional cookie recipes (and some we tried and didn't like). You can find all of my posted cookie recipes here. If I discover any new and wonderful recipes, I'll be sure to post them.
