It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

      It's almost Christmas, and I don't know about you, but I am having serious problems getting things done! It is just too much fun to turn on Christmas music and eat ice cream on the couch:) We decorated as much as we could in our little home. Our tree is my favorite part. It's from the Festival of Trees and is covered in snowmen. The little guy with button legs is the best. 
     After about a week of no meal planning while I was with my amazing family, I had a really hard time planning dinner. Yesterday was frozen burritos:) Today I decided to go out on a limb. I am pretty picky when trying recipes. I usually stick with family recipes, America's Test Kitchen, The Pioneer Woman and once in a while Pinterest catches my attention, but let's face it, the closest any of our friends who pin these things have come to testing the recipe is a virtual smell. I have been following a friends blog from an old singles ward and decided to trust her Chicken Pot Pie. That is the thing inside that horribly dirty oven of mine, but it smells oh so yummy & it got me into my kitchen for an hour or so singing in a "I'm home alone" volume. I am excited for Mr. Zeus to come home and eat it with me:)

     I hope your holidays are going as great as mine! Only two more weeks of classes. I can stay focused for that long, right?
