Get it??? It’s Day 7 of the “12 Days of Christmas” ~ Actually the song was meant to start on Boxing Day

…but this is not why I am writing this post LOL


Working on my Cmas day menu. I have a few things planned and one new vegan product I am trying and will give the overall review after Cmas Day.

Gifts are mostly done. Waiting for something from international airmail and it may not arrive. My kids are good about this sort of thing. Always have been. I am grateful 🙂

In the meantime I was introduced to this blog by Jaime Karpovich (Save the Kales) and specifically their newest project Betty Goes Vegan” aka “The Betty Crocker Project I loved it so much, I pre-ordered the book!  Can’t wat to see it. I have a very old BC cookbook that’s falling apart. It was the first cookbook I bought for myself over 30 years ago.

Can’t believe I haven’t posted since Thanksgiving!! What’s up with that? LOL

Happy perusing and I’ll be back soon.
