2013 holiday menu

Well, the holiday season is upon us, and it sure came in with a blast!  We enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving in Omaha with my sister, who, by the way, made a fabulous turkey.  I'll be featuring that recipe soon - it's too good not to share!  Then, we brought my little sis back with us for a week of fun in Texas, only to have it end with what locals are affectionately calling "Icemageddon 2013"!

It's nuts outside!  We had 3.5 inches of sleet on Thursday/Friday, and the weather station says we're going to get more freezing drizzle tonight.  Being holed up at home has given me plenty of time to think about what we'll be eating for the next few weeks and to wish that I had been prepared before the ice hit.

I've decided it's time I start back up with menu posts again.  Like I used to do, I'll just list the recipes that are on my "short list" for the month.  As I post each recipe, I'll link it up to the menu post.  There's no guarantee that I'll make all of them or even post all of the ones I make - only our favorites make it to the blog!  (But, I can tell you now...the Christmas Cremes pictured below are definitely some of our favorites!)
