The season of Thanksgiving leading up to Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love our American Thanksgiving holiday and how it reminds us to be thankful. And Christmas…well, I just love everything about it. It’s of course fun to give and receive gifts, but, I love the spirit of the holiday! The beautiful sparkly decorations, and the specific time of year dedicated to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Plus, it’s finally cooler here in south Texas for a couple of days! So, on the subject of gift-giving, and being the chef wanna-be that I am, I’m making and giving Mason Jar Risotto Mix to give as gifts to some lucky recipients on my list this year!
Mason Jar Gift Risotto Mix includes arborio rice, dried wild mushrooms, minced chives, pine nuts, optional saffron threads… The how to package it and prepare coming this week!
Perfect for a teacher holiday gift, hostess gift, White Elephant game gift…endless possibilities! Stay tuned!
I just had to quickly share this tip with you! If you have a Kindle, you’re gonna love it!! It’s very easy to do…just download a PDF or Word document and send the attachment to your Kindle email address that you’ll find at your Amazon account. I didn’t even know I had a Kindle email address!!
Hectic days, call for easy, tasty meals! Today was one of those ‘Murphy’s Law’ kind of days, everything that could go wrong seemingly did. Endless traffic and lines that make me late are the bane of my existence since I’m always on a tight schedule, driving from one Real Estate photo shoot to the next. Of course, lucky me…I got behind THE slowest vehicle on the planet at one point with no way to get around him. He needs to take his ‘Sunday drives’ on a Sunday, already! OK, end rant. So, it’s the middle of October, but, we’re still experiencing summer temps here in the afternoon, so, I won’t be making my favorite fall soups just yet, but, these quick and easy spicy chicken lettuce wraps are stress free to make on days like this and they’re loaded with flavor (no exaggeration!) Perfect to whip up after a day like today. If yours was like mine, you need to make them too! And here’s a bonus, they’re low carb and gluten free, so, load up those lettuce leaves!!
