Dreamy December Day Three Participation Update:


I also realized that I did not count the book I read when I was riding home in the car on Sunday. 

  • My first holiday book of the season, Holiday Kisses, a collection of short stories by Jaci Burton, Shannon Stacey, HelenKay Dimon and Alison Kent

This would would bring my three day total up 3 books finished and one more book in the works. :-) I am happy with my progress thus far!!

Day 3 Challenge: Holiday Foods! 

Today we are talking food! I actually like to cook and bake--when I have the time! :-D So here are some of the traditions surrounding food during the holiday season for my family:

  • Christmas Eve: we have Overnight Lasagna (similar to the linked recipe, but I have adapted it over the years), salad and garlic bread. We have a dessert of some sort but it varies from year to year. 
  • Christmas Day: varies but we usually do something brunch related so we make various quiches, ham and more. 
I hope everyone is having fun participating in Dreamy December Days! Tomorrow is suppose to be my day off but I have to go into work for a meeting and run a bunch of errands. I hope to be able to get on to check with you all regardless!

  1. Wow. You've read 3 already. Awesome! :D

    Untraditional traditions? :P I love how you included the recipes too. I don't really cook much but the truffles are tempting.

    1. I like to cook but for me, it is finding the time. My schedule is nontraditional--I do not have a typical job in the sense that I do not work a 9:00-5:00 job. I work nights and weekends in addition to some days, so I do not get to do it as often as I would like.


Thank you for taking the time to write a comment! I read them all and respond to them as soon as I can.
