What Goes Up, Must Come Down

I made a lot of food. I thought maybe the big kids would be coming by but they didn’t. Everyone was burnt out on hectic holiday and work schedules. So, I ended up with a ton of prepared food for the three of us. It was a fun morning in the kitchen.

Actually I made this cheeseball on New Years Eve. The cheeseball is so easy. Soften cream cheese, add craisins. With your hand form it into a ball and roll the ball into chopped pecans to cover it.

Whisk together a tub of cool-whip, 1 pkg. of softened cream cheese. 1/2 cup of powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Frost!
I made my homemade sweet and spicy chili :

Meatballs with jellied cranberry sauce and chili sauce. Super easy combining the two ingredients in a saucepan. Heat. Pour over 1 pkg. of frozen meatballs in crock pot. Stir and heat for a few hours…

I also bought but didn’t bake yet some Apple Blossoms… I thought that they would be pair well with the sweet and spicy chili and the cheeses I set out.

As I mentioned, it ended up being just the three of us lol. Nice to not have to cook the next few days! I hope you and yours are enjoying the last little bit of the holiday season. I have a feeling the time that I saved not having to cook will be used utilized putting Christmas away lol. What goes up, must come down! Not as much fun as putting it up…I’m sure that I’m not alone in this!

I've been a stay at home Mom for many years...Have earned a PhD in life experience. My oldest is 30 and my youngest is 13. On a quest to see all that I can be now. I am a musician, singer/ songwriter. In the process of trying to become marketable. Would love to make money doing what I love! I love to do many domestic things also. Nothing I do seems to be profitable. Guess I am at a point in life that I would like to be compensated . My whole life I have given freely. Now, show me my money making niche. Still in the process of figuring that out.
