Menu Plan + DIY Gift Ideas

Can you believe it’s already the first weekend of December? I can tell this month is going to fly by.

We got a tree this week and decorated the inside of our house.  It’s so much crazier (and more fun) with kids.  We have a few broken ornaments and the entire nativity scene disappeared and then reappeared in the doll house. But it’s cozy and fun to have everything out.  And we’re going to spend today in NYC soaking up the holiday spirit.

The tree needs a few more lights and ornaments, but it's getting there!

Most of our gift shopping is done, but I came across  a few great DIY ideas this week:

Bath and Body

DIY Homemade Peppermint Cherry Body Scrub (This looks so fantastic, I can almost smell it.  If you decide to make it, I recommend high quality essential oils like these. One drop goes a long way!)

Edible Gifts

Wild Blueberry Biscotti

Dark Chocolate Sunflower Butter Truffles

Cranberry Dark Chocolate Granola

Plus 12 other edible gift ideas


And our menu plan for the week:


Sunday: NYC for the day

Monday: Salmon cakes, or we might try these Cranberry Cheddar Salmon Sliders

Tuesday: Quinoa Veggie Stuffed Peppers

Wednesday:  Turkey and Sweet Potato Chili (repeat- didn’t happen last week)

Thursday: Leftovers

Friday:  Spaghetti squash and chicken sausage

Saturday: Out or leftovers


PS- Details on the January “Reset” challenge coming tomorrow!

Do you make any homemade gifts? Have you decorated for the holidays?
