Hi guys!

I hope you’re having a fantastic week! We really don’t have much going on this week which is nice after a months of soccer and football every night.

Oh! I did make my first holiday cookie tin of the year yesterday!

Happy Monday!

How is your holiday prep going?

We finally got our tree this weekend. I think I had mine up weeks before Thanksgiving last year but we’ve just been so busy/we kept waiting for a tree lot to pop up around us and nothing ever did.

My closet has filled with Target boxes and I’ve watched The Holiday Calendar 17 times.

It doesn’t really feel like Christmas though. You know? It’s not super cold, I haven’t taken the dogs to see Santa, we haven’t even made gingerbread houses yet.

Okay first, I want you to know that I didn’t know what to call these so I asked my dear sweet precious boyfriend who suggested…

Deer droppings.

Why?!

Of all the things he could have said.

We’re not going to call them that. Please don’t call them that.

It’s Christmas cookie season!

How excited are you?!

And how was Thanksgiving?!

My kids were out of town and since I very rarely get a night without kids and I’m also always whining about the lack of poke in our tiny city, BF drove us 45 minutes Wednesday night so we could have a Thanksgiving sushi burrito and poke bowl. He had to work real Thanksgiving and I was happy not to cook a single thing this year.

And then I never left the house the rest of the weekend except to pick my kids up yesterday.

It was perfect.

Apple Cranberry Crisp - the easiest Thanksgiving dessert! Sliced apples and whole berry cranberry sauce topped with a crunchy oat topping.

Hi guys!

We wrapped up our last weekend of fall sports this past weekend so hopefully that means I’ll get some new recipes up now. Also? Those last 2 games were so stupid cold that I had 3 layers on and eventually wrapped myself in a blanket that I found in the back of the Jeep.

I mean, what’s the point of living in Texas if it’s going to be 27 degrees in November?

I’m not big on Thanksgiving recipes and would really like to skip right over to Christmas cookies but I do want to share this dessert that I’ve already made twice. We’re obsessed.

I make the same recipes for Thanksgiving dinner every single year but for some reason I like to try different dessert recipes. I don’t think I’ve ever made a traditional pumpkin pie. I made this last week and didn’t photograph it because I didn’t expect us to love it but it barely lasted a day in my house so I had to make it again!
