My kids aren’t the only ones this week unhappy that school started. The homework fights are back and everyone is dragging in the morning, not wanting to do what must be done or go where they must go. “The good news,” I told my kids, “is that Christmas break is only 4 weeks away!” They weren’t convinced. Personally, I am dreading Christmas shopping and figuring out my gift list. I mean not everyone is going to get a jar of jam!

As far as the kids are concerned, our house has plenty of toys, and we certainly don’t need any more. I have a love-hate relationship with the electronic gizmos in the house. Sadly, we’re done with the action heroes, matchbox cars and bionicles. Through yard sales and grandparents, we own a gazillion legos. I am leaning towards the experience-type gifts for my boys, but the hubby said they won’t be happy waving a sheet of paper on Christmas morning and would prefer racing a cool R/C car.

In other news, I am happy to report that 95% of our Thanksgiving leftovers are gone. It makes me a little sad, though, but I think I knixed my turkey cravings! Of course, there is still some leftover pomegranate cranberry sauce sitting all lonely in the fridge. Don’t sweat it. Cranberries are highly acidic and your sauce can stay safe in your refrigerator for weeks without going bad. And since my 7-year old daughter has been asking for scones, I decided to use my leftover cranberry sauce to good use.

My daughter, she’s easy for the holidays. Anything with animal prints, pink or bling and she’ll be happy.

Me? I’m low maintenance. I don’t need any diamonds or rubies. Give me a beat up pallet or some tarnished spoons and I’m happy.

Mmmph. Food bloggers.
