It’s a new year, wow! Where did the time ever go?! I look at the boys and they are getting HUGE, I know time has passed but it still surprises me sometimes. December was a busy month as I’m sure it was for most of you. Here’s a peek in our kitchen during that madness….
Between various holiday school parties, teacher gifts and a teacher luncheon there was a lot of action in the kitchen. Here’s a collage sampling of what happened in our kitchen.
The big picture is Sean and Ewan “decorating” their own pizza on a family pizza night, always a favorite dinner night! Then from the top right around we have: Jack decorating some World Peace Cookies from Dorie Greenspan’s Dorie’s Cookies, the decorated World Peace Cookies, a rum cake soaking in the pan overnight for a teacher holiday luncheon, Jack posing with all the teacher gifts the boys took to school and desserts for the teacher luncheon, a veggie plate for Jack’s class holiday party, Jack making eggnog and Ewan rolling gingerbread cookies in sugar. Wow, that was all done in just two days!!
It’s December, where on Earth did the time go? I am nowhere near ready for Christmas and I don’t really care. What gets done is great, if it doesn’t we will survive. Every year it seems things get busier so this year amid the chaos we are going to enjoy the time we have.
With another month comes another In My Kitchen post. This is a wonderful monthly roundup hosted by Liz over at her Good Thing’s blog. Jump on over there and see what everyone is up to.
November was a whirlwind of a month as always, especially with Ewan’s birthday being two days before Thanksgiving. The birthday boy was over the moon excited to have cioppino for his birthday dinner. How many eight year olds do that?! I made it with mussels, scallops, shrimp and cod. He also had cupcakes for dessert. Of the three boys, Ewan is the one that enjoys food the most, as well as eats the most.
