Woo-hoo, Christmas is less than a week away! I’m almost done with shopping, but nowhere near done with wrapping. Amazed at the sales and contests out there!
Did you know that if you join Amazon Mom - and you don’t have to be a mom, just a parent or caregiver (details on the link)- you can get a free Amazon Prime membership for a year? Don’t know what Amazon Prime is? It’s a service Amazon offers that includes free two-day shipping. So if you are out there and haven’t finished your shopping yet, this could be just the thing! Not to mention all your other year-long obligations and needs.
Sunday: Last week’s salmon was so good that we’re reprising it: Salmon with Sweet Chili Glaze and Roasted Green Beans. And fyi for those of you in NYC: the Eataly fish counter rocks. Best salmon I’ve had in a dog’s age.
Monday: Reprising an old favorite from the Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast cookbook: Chicken with Tomatoes, Olives & Cilantro
Tuesday: Grilled Skirt Steak (marinated in Tony’s) with Spicy Oven-Roasted Vegetables
Wednesday: Burrito night- or maybe we’ll go for the Black Bean Tacos with Feta Slaw from Smitten Kitchen
Friday & Saturday: Christmas festivities! Cookies for Santa. General merriment and loud conversation. Late night wrapping. Can’t wait.
I’m obsessed with this Christmas Rum Cake on the home page of The Pioneer Woman. Someone in the next week and 1/2 is going to get lucky when I make it.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, ALL!
