I’m making cranberry bread…

I know that I just made a post about my feet swelling because of all the sugar I was eating, but I just made some cranberry bread with fresh cranberries. It is still baking at the moment, but I’m excited to see how it turns out. I have never baked this type of thing before so I look forward to seeing how it tastes.

I am also looking forward to and planning on making some cookies and other Christmas desserts that I can send to my family members in a tin box. My grandmother used to do this every year and I decided that I want to continue the tradition and send it to my sisters, nieces and nephews and other relatives like she used too. I have to go to the store letter and pick up a bunch of ingredients and a few other baking supplies because I quit baking a long time ago. I am really excited to start baking again.


My oldest sister made bread bowls filled with potato soup for us. This is the first time I’ve ever had one…sad I know. It was delicious and it was very filling. There was no need for any side dishes or anything it was one big meal.

Here is what it looked like:

So good…

My oldest sister is a chef at a big company and every now and then she will bring us some of her dishes. Well today, she brought home mini fajitas. They have steak and sauteed onions and peppers and her home-made salsa. Man, they were so good. I think I made a pig of myself. lol.
