It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas … these next few weeks will be sporadic and odd. We have Christmas parties, Christmas productions and family get-togethers so the menus be changed, forgotten, or scrapped completely. One of the things I enjoy about Christmas is that down here, deep in the heart of Texas, we actually get a bit of chilly weather, and if we cross our fingers we MIGHT get a smattering of snow. Besides snow that means we can finally have fires in the fireplace, hot cocoa and thick, warm soups WITHOUT sweating to death. I know there are many of you who would like the milder temperatures, but we down here would like some coolness every now and then.
Last week was a week of leftovers. My husband worked late every night working on the set for our church Christmas production, so they fed him. I did make an amazing potato soup , but you will have to wait until January for that recipe to come out in Destiny In Bloom’s Real Life Matters section. At that time you can also get my recipe for Sausage and Black Bean Soup, and Beef and Black Bean Chili, so please check back around the second of January at Destiny In Bloom. However, if you are looking for some great holiday treats you can check out my November article, here.
Here is what we will be eating at our house this week.
Tuesday: Peasant Soup and homemade bread
Wednesday: Beef Enchiladas and Cheese Enchiladas, Spanish rice, and homemade refried beans
Saturday: Fish and Chips
