We spent the weekend xmas tree decorating, xmas card writing, wrapping and mailing packages for family and friends who live away, lighting up our yard etc.. very fun this year in our new house! Next year will be even more exciting and different with a newborn’s xmas! This week I also spent time decorating other parts of the house with swag. Messy and fun to be creating again ! This weekend and next week’s goals for me? The NURSERY and start some fun xmas baking. If you look back at last year’s xmas blog entries, we did a lot of firsts for baking. I’m thinking of redoing … mint and choc beaver damns and pine nut and smoked salmon tarts! For starters.
We are on week three (I hope) of 12 weeks of the p90x meal plan and exersize program. While a scheduling nightmare to workout and eat full healthy meals every day, it feels good. The week before we started we made a second round of TARTS from my tart recipe book. We made Spinach, pine nut and feta tarts and another batch of thai smoked salmon tarts and an awesome vegetable big tart. All were amazing. Corey makes a lovely crust. Then there has been a series of turkey jerky (made it again last week as Corey loves to throw a bird in the oven every couple weeks) and soups. My asparagus soup and my speghetti squash soup were delicious.
