Recipe and Free Download

Hey! Are you taking a break from wrapping gifts? Maybe you've been baking something yummy today? I'll be baking next Monday. Oh how I love to share cookies and candies with the neighbors, friends and family. It's another part of this holiday I love so much!

Today I thought I'd share a recipe with you. I'm still working on broadening the family dinner menu and my boys really liked the new dish I made last night!




This dish is called Chicken-Zucchini Alfredo from Food Network. It's quick, it's easy and it's good; the kind of recipes I look for since I'm not a chef and I don't have a lot of extra time to spend in the kitchen each evening. I also try to find recipes that use fresh and reduced fat ingredients. The only draw back to this recipe is that you fry the chicken breasts which I don't like because of the mess and it adds fat. Next time I'm make this, I plan to cook the chicken breasts in our George Foreman grill.


Now I have to share a sweet drawing Christopher made last weekend. He's been holding a Cat Toy Festival over the past several days for our two feline friends, Latte and Java. This is the official festival poster. ;)




At the festival the cats can play a number of games Christopher has created such as Down Ball, Down, String and Bouncy Ball. He also has a festival library that contains all his books about cats. Then there's the oodles of cat toys he has scattered all over the festival grounds! It's quite cute! Poor kid needs a dog! He's having a bit of trouble getting our two lazy boys to join in the festival games! :)

One last share before I get busy with more holiday activities. I'd like to share a free download of a holiday vintage image. I hope you can use it for some cards, a holiday scrapbook page or decor project. If you do, I'd love to see what you make!




Whatever it is you do today, I hope it's a great day! We just had a truck drive by and salt our street. Looks like a storm and our below normal temperatures will bring us a rare snow for the second time this month! Good thing we stocked up on the hot chocolate and I made a pot of split pea soup yesterday! :) Kathy

How funny Christopher's cat toy festival is! Great drawing he made. I bet his games are very creative....now if only those two furry beasties are up for the excitement. ;)
That recipe looks yummy. I love zucchini, but can't say as though my kiddos do. Might have to try this one with them anyway, see if we can't get them to change their minds.
