There are only 9 days left until Christmas and I still don't have a menu planned for our meal, or any idea if it will have to be rescheduled. What I do have are twisted peppermint plug-ins from Bath and Body Works, copious amounts of Christmas cookies, and Egg Nog from Sassy Cow Creamery in Columbus, WI. The holidays are almost here, even if I'm suffering from a case of the bah-humbugs brought on by lack of sleep and stress.
What I wouldn't give for one day this week where I could get a solid eight hours of uninterrupted sleep. I wonder if Santa reads my blog, maybe I should cover all my bases (with a little nod to Lucy from Charlie Brown's Christmas while I'm at it.) Although I'm wondering if the approach Linus took was better. Should I try for a peculiarly refreshing letter instead?
I'll just stick with the direct approach for now.
I have been perfect all year. Perhaps you could bring me a few extra hours of sleep and a housekeeper this year.

Instead of writing letters to Santa, I should probably sit down and plan the dinner menu so I can do the grocery shopping next week. We likely won't have guests for our holiday meal like I had planned. That really bums me out because I love cooking for other people and seldom get the chance to do so.
Curious about what I'll be putting together in the kitchen at Not Starving Yet? Here is a rundown on what I've decided on making this year with links to some of the recipes. My updates will still continue to be sporadic over the next few weeks, but as I have time I'll post the recipes for you to enjoy. Hopefully by the start of the new year things will be back to normal around here.
