December Menu

It is cookie month for me! Cookies for my family, cookies for various parties and activities, and three large trays of cookies for my husband to bring to work.
That explains the photo above.
(I won't add that cookies become their own food group in the month of December.)
Also, both high schoolers start winter sports today, which means quick (or make ahead) dinners with easy clean up.
