  1. They are all awesome recipes Maria. Thanks for sharing them. Some kf them are our absolute favorites too, like sesame noodles and pumpkin muffins. There are some that sound awesome and were just added to the to-make list. 🙂

  2. Because of my lactose intolerance and the fact that we don’t eat beef, we will eat the chili and tweek it by using turkey without the cheese, we like the chocolate cake and the black bean salad.

    As for yesterday? We just stayed home, ate in, watched a little television and then went to bed early!

    Today, we plan on eating breakfast out, then for dinner having pork, stuffing, potatoes, brussel sprouts, and leftover dark chocolate brownies that I made last night.

    Hope you enjoyed your New Year’s celebration!
