Hello Friends!

We are totally deep into THE shopping season. Totally… Except, I haven’t crossed out anyone’s name off my list, which means I have not bought one single thing for my Christmas pals. 

I’m not worried because I do this every.year. I wait until that last week to get what I need and I look just as ready as those that bought their gifts last March. However, the difference between them and I is that I spent a “bit” more than they did. UGH. When I grow up, I want to be a smarter shopper.

At least I can cook…

This year, and every other year, the one thing my family and friends can’t complain about is lack of delicious food. I can do that! In fact, I do do that!

    This was perfect! It wasn’t too mild or too spicy it was great! My teen had seconds! I did use only 1 cup of the cheese and I added green Ortega chili’s

    I love buying shredded cheese, especially for week nights. Barn days are short for time and this is a huge help! I need to shop to so I will see you out there…haha!

    ” I spent a “bit” more than they did”

    Ouch … maybe you should change your shopping habits just a BIT.

    The quiche looks delicious with some of my favourite flavours. Kraft does make some handy products including the mixed cheese variety bags.
