Welcome to Five on Friday Week 16! 

  1. Christmas Overalls-We finally got to wear are super cute matching Christmas Overalls to work this week. They are so super cute and comfy! We created quite a stir. Kids were popping into our rooms all day to see us. We have decided that we will were them every Thursday for the rest of December.

  2. Board and Brush-Last Friday I got to hang out with some amazing friends at Board and Brush. We had so much fun personalizing our boards and creating something for our houses. I can’t wait to go back!

  3. Stocking Holders-I have had our Christmas stockings out for a few weeks now, but they were just hanging on the entertainment center handles and not looking very Christmasy. I am excited that this week our new silver snowflake stocking holders arrived. They look so much better and more festive. It is the little things.
  4. Holidays with my Class-I have said it many times, but I just love my class! This year they really wanted to celebrate Christmas. I set up a pallet tree in the corner of my room and Alice the Angel Bear showed up on Tuesday. Alice is just like the elves that are seen all over this time of year, but our classroom elf had to stay up at the North Pole to help Santa and sent Alice as a replacement. It makes me so happy that they are happy! 
  5. Comforting and Quick Recipes-I’m beat! It’s getting chilly outside tonight and the only thing I want is a massive grilled cheese sandwich and some yummy, spicy tomato soup. It’s a good thing I have everything in the pantry to throw together one of our favorites. Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper Soup. I think you will like the recipe too.

 


 

Remember it’s the little things that count! Have a wonderful weekend and don’t forget to share your top 5 below. Also don’t forget to sign up for weekly emails!

Happy Friday and Merry Christmas!

Crazy About Cranberry

Are you crazy about cranberries? I am!

I love this tart berry that is bursting with holiday flavor. I purchase several bags as soon as fresh ones become available and use them in all kinds of ways.

I make a tradition Holiday Cranberry Sauce and Cranberry Jelly with Orange and Ginger. These sweet tart, ruby red sauces are the perfect thing to pair with your holiday turkey. They are also fabulous over cheesecake or mixed with sparkling wine.

Holiday Cranberry Sauce

If you have a little Holiday Cranberry Sauce leftover simply mix it with some horseradish to give your leftover turkey or roast beef sandwiches a little zip.

Cranberry Horseradish Sauce add zip to sandwiches.

Bake this Cran-Apple Relish with some brie for a festive and easy appetizer.

Cran-Apple Relish with Walnuts has been a family favorite for over a decade. We put it on top of crackers with cream cheese or goat cheese. (Hint: Mix cream cheese with goat cheese. You won’t have to spend as much money on goat cheese and you will still get that great flavor.) We also use this on top of baked brie. It makes perfect appetizers!

All of these delicious cranberry creations can be served on toast or bagels for a festive breakfast as well.

If your crazy about cranberry, give these easy recipes a try today!
