MENU OF THE WEEK #11


Wow! I just noticed that this is my 100th post! Hooray for me!

When I realized it was only eight days until Christmas, I knew it was time for this particular Menu Wednesday. Besides being short, sweet and easy, it works for almost any meal or entertaining you have planned for these last few busy days before Christmas. And maybe the best part for me when I make both of these dishes is remembering my friends Pat and Gayle, who gave me these recipes so long ago. I am fortunate to still count them as friends, and even though I don't see them as often as I would like, at this time of year I look forward to receiving their Christmas cards and catching up on their news. Friends - and recipes! - are truly gifts that keep on giving!

Next Wednesday will be Christmas Eve and I'll be working all day at my 'shop girl job' and then having a quiet dinner with my parents, my brothers, my sister-in-law, and of course, My Favorite Husband. The newlyweds will be with Kristen's family for Christmas Eve, and then with us on Christmas Day. I'm sure all of you will be as busy as I am, so we'll be taking a day off at Menu Wednesday. Check back here on New Year's Eve though, to see what we'll be serving up for 2009!

Until then, take a look at the recipes for Quiche and Hot Baked Fruit AND have a Holly Jolly Christmas with your family and friends, near and far!
Love,
Cora
