My daughter sent these photos of the Christmas Wishes packets hanging on her tree…before December 1st. Oops! I’m just getting around to showing them.
Tired of turkey? But still have some leftover from your bountiful feast?
It’s OK to substitute turkey for chicken and I have two great recipes for you and a suggestion for another meal/snack to help use up the leftover fowl.
White Chicken Chili is another way to finish up the turkey. This one can be as spicy or mild as you like and only has 5 ingredients. My daughter came up with this recipe and won a chili cooking contest with it – though I claim it as my own.
The last suggestion is the famous Buffalo Chicken dip that’s been around for years! You probably already have this in your recipe file but click here and it will take you to the one I use.
Are you (US residents) ready for the big turkey day feast tomorrow? Our daughter and family were here for the weekend so we had our big meal this past Sunday.
I recruited two helpers to slather butter between the skin and breast of the turkey. Smaller hands worked great.
Best turkey ever!
It’s that time again for the box of Christmas Wishes! I had to get these ready now so the recipients can take them home at Thanksgiving (and save me from mailing them later).
Instead of buying paper for the packets, I used some old music paper which I ran through the printer to add some holiday graphics.
The packets contain a small ornament to hang on a small 2-foot tree. One ornament per child each day beginning December 1st so by Christmas Eve the tree will be decorated. This year it’s 69 ornaments as the candy cane tree won’t hang on the tree. (BTW, my daughter saves most of the ornaments each year and gives them back to me every other year so I don’t have to buy all new ones each year. And the grandchildren haven’t complained yet!)
Do you have an Advent tradition?
