In other news, we're preparing for guests again in a couple of weeks, so I'll be doing as much cooking ahead as I can. Although for the recipes I've chosen, there isn't as much I can do ahead this time. And yes, I did think about reusing the same menu, but decided instead to customize based on this group's preferences (breakfast and lunch ended up the same, so there's that).
In other, other news, it's Christmas month, so I'll be making some treats. Last week, I made Grinch cookies (cake mix cookies, dyed green, with candy hearts on them), Rolo pretzels (like this, only instead of using a nut on top, I use a second pretzel), and Mint m&m Oreo cookies. I'm not sure what's on tap for this week. I've been in the mood to make dipped things, like buckeyes and Oreo truffles. I think I might make sugar cookies this week, and I just noticed the Santa's Snickers Surprises recipe when I was looking for the sugar cookie recipe, and it looked enticing. I guess we'll find out. Or, at least, I will. You probably will, too.
Here's what's on the menu this week:
