Cranberry Good

November 26, 2011

I am soooo tired of eating and drinking. I just don’t know how to stop! This week-long party continues and we are having so much fun. But I think all of us are ready for some salads and soups to simplify mealtime again. We have one more night with Larbs and Matt before everyday starts […]

Things are warm and cozy in here this morning – because it’s hot outside, the heat is on and the oven was fired up! Triple heat. Too much heat! I made a big batch of Cville Crunch French toast to feed the group. Complete with grilled bananas and a few dollops of bourbon whipped cream! […]
