Menu Monday

I have my Hot chocolate station up and going strong:) Yum!

I can't believe that Christmas is in two weeks! I am so excited, I can hardly stand it. There is something so magical and joyful about sharing this special time of year with children. I love it. Unfortunately my family has been fighting the flu , so last week we did not stick with our planned menu very well. We had several nights where I just made what sounded good to my little sickies... soft eggs and toast, pancakes or simple noodle soup and smoothies. So if some of the recipes look like repeats that is why. Tomorrow I am making our traditional dinner for the first snowfall of the year... "Snowball Soup" (matzo ball soup) because snow is on the forecast! We had just enough flakes swirling around Sunday night to have school cancelled for Monday! The boys were thrilled! I am looking forward to the next two weeks very much. We only have a few more days until my boys are all home for the Christmas break. Such a happy time!

You are amazing! My Mom makes Chicken Ala King & it was one of my favorites growing up. She served it over puff pastries though. I'm going to start the tradition of making it for Christmas too. I'll check sisterscafe for the bread crown recipe. I think my boys would like that better.
I hope you guys have an awesome Southern Christmas :) I just finished a cute Christmas story that reminded me of you, because it's in the south. It's called "A redbird Christmas" by Fannie Flagg. You should read it! Love ya' all!
