Christmas 2013: Not So Jolly

Let's face it. I had high hopes of providing a ton of ideas for the upcoming Christmasy festivities. Yet, to be honest, 2013 hasn't been the happiest of years. In some cases, yes, but knowing what it's going to be like this year, with family issues and what not, I'm just not much in the spirit of Yuletide caring.

Don't get me wrong, I love holiday food and all, but anything I think about now is just the standard stuff:

-Homemade Mac and Cheese
-Green Bean Casserole
-Roast Beef
-My Aunt's always better than anyone else's homemade Chex Mix.

So, I would like to extend my apologies for being a bit Grinchy this year.

I'm working on creating a whole new me...one who is much happier and much more productive in 2014. As a tried and true introvert, this is taking a tremendous amount of mental work on my part! Meanwhile, I hope you can find some other recipes here that will help feed you between now and the big day!  Check out the archives. Or, jump on over to Simply Deb and see what else is going on! 

Happy Holidays!

  1. I don't "do" Christmas, so the holiday has been a tough one for me too. I have zero money, and have told my kids not to give me a gift or I will be angry at them. I just want to get moved into my new place and get a real life! THEN I can be enthusiastic about holidays again!
