But, I Am Still Full ...

The holidays keep rolling. So do I after all the pie.

We've been living on leftovers at The Kitchen. It's given my "dishpan hands" time to recover with the 14 hours of cooking before Thanksgiving. Two days before the holiday dinner, I had a wisdom tooth pulled and a raging sinus infection. By Friday, I was beat up. Frankly, I needed a break!

So, I got a day off ... heh. But now it is back at it to plan for the gingerbread houses, cookies, and Christmas dinner-lunch-brunch, and New Year's appetizers ahead. Look for all these recipes to come starting with the Red Wine Poached Pear Salad posted yesterday.

If you have a particular menu type you are trying to plan, leave me a comment, and I will do my best to post a recipe for it.

Could you do a post on your ginger-bread house? I'd love to make one with my son, but am completely nervous that it would end up being nerve-racking and no fun. He's 2.5.

You got it. I did also post last year on avoiding frustration with cookie making and young kids. I'll get a link to that up for you as well.
