Baking Time & A More Successful Stir-Fry

Gooood morning!

I could NOT roll out of bed this morning because I was so comfortable with my soft, brown dog. When I finally pried myself out, I sleepily made myself a giant coffee and PB and banana sammich which I am enjoying as we speak and I am slowly coming to life.

It is another crisp morning, I tell ya – I am still trying to get used to this weather, I never know how to dress! I tried to wear comfortable boots today though because I will be standing in line at the post office for lunch to mail off the Christmas cookies I slaved away at yesterday.

This year I baked 3 different kinds of cookies. I am not going to share them yet since I am mailing them off and want them to be a semi-surprise so I will share later in the week. One of them did include cut-outs of course, that is not a surprise 🙂

Cute huh?

What is not cute is the mess that was my kitchen.

It is kind of bound to happen though.

Yesterday was a crazy busy day but I definitely got a lot done. I promised Torrance I would help him clean and do a little on his tool truck in the afternoon, so with that being my only obligation I headed to the grocery store to get that out of the way and get the kitchen restocked.

In between decorating, I even managed to cook some dinner too . Remember when I cooked stir fry last week that was so-so? Well yesterday I decided to pick something up to use for sauce.

It turned out much, much better this time! I used a different veggie mix (Steamfresh frozen veggies still) this time as well – I got an Asian blend that included sugar peas, water chestnuts, carrots, and broccoli. I also sautteed some mushrooms to add and included shrimp and chicken. It was really good.

The only thing on my to do list for the weekend that I didnt really get to was finishing my Christmas shopping, but I’m sure I will manage to get it done sometime this week which I am sure will be crazy with all the rest of the people out there finishing up!


I’m actually going to go to training tonight, first time in over a week, hopefully I dont die!

Have a good Monday!

  • How was your weekend? What did you do?
  • Are you all done Xmas shopping or are you a last minuter?
    I am usually a last minuter 🙂

    Those cookies are adorable! I’m excited to see which other kinds you baked.
    Everytime it seems I’m done with Christmas shopping something else comes up! I went out today and got a ton done, but then thought of something else for a friend and one other gift for my dad- ahh!!;)

  5. I’m a last minuter for sure!!! I say every year that I’m going to start early the next year, but I never do. Meh.
    Those cookies look ridiculous. And yeah, whenever I make shortbread cookies my kitchen is an absolute disaster! Worth it though 😉

  6. I am definitely a last-minute shopper! It’s stressful, but somehow, it always works out! 🙂
