I have a secret to share. I hate winter. Okay, it’s not actually a secret since everyone who knows me knows that. It’s not the cold; I love crisp cold days and tromping through the snow. As long as there is plenty of sunshine. It’s the darkness of winter that gets me.
Every year I try to come up with some fun winter activity so I have things to look forward to. This year I found it while perusing food blogs (my new favorite pastime). I’m participating in the 5th Annual Dark Days Challenge.
My step kids are in town for Thanksgiving. That means two things. 1: the decibel level in our house increases three-fold. 2: we have buy 5x more groceries than usual. I always struggle with that last one. Not living with teenagers full time, I just never get used to how much they eat! But this visit I was ready. We had a 7-pound turkey breast in the freezer which I thought would be perfect for lunches. And I remembered to take it out of the freezer in time! (A huge accomplishment for me.)
