Well, it’s been 2017 for the majority of a month already!  I’ve decided that 2017 is going to be my best food year yet.  It’s time to get organized!  I’ve started planning out what I’ll be cooking every weekend during the week and buying the groceries ahead of time so I don’t have to think about what to make AND grocery shop the day-of, which can be an energy killer.  It’s been easy to do and has felt freeing.  And it has given me time to make more things!  I’m really excited about it.  I have so many ideas about things to make; this year I’m getting efficient and making them all happen.


My other, probably more important goal is to be more intentional in every thing that I do.  I guess the planning of meals goes with that, because it means that my weekend time is well spent (not at the grocery store).  I want to spend free time doing the things I love like cooking, not running extra errands that could have been avoided or figuring out what to do.



Happy end-of-holidays, everyone!  Who has baked up a storm in the past month?  I certainly have.  I wanted to share the treats I’ve made lately and particularly these melting snowmen cookies.  They take time, but if you break up the cookie baking and cookie decorating into different days, they’re relaxing and fun to make.  And heart-warmingly cute!  I meant to post the recipe earlier since clearly these are Christmas/holiday cookies, but since they’re snowmen I suppose you could make them anytime it’s snowy.  🙂
