One Pot Meal
I love the fact that its colder outside and the Christmas tree is up and sparkling. Even if I AM recovering from a cold. I have presents to wrap under the tree. And, I don’t know why but I haven’t been able to find the porcelain figurines to go in my Nativity set. Right now I just have an empty manger waiting for baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the three Wise Men. I know I’ll find ‘em.
After all, the Christmas tree is beautiful and I love my little Santa doll I got in Paris a few years ago that sings “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby. (I am NOT making this up.) But the nativity set and the story of Jesus being born in the manger in Bethlehem is really what the season is about, right?
In the midst of all the holiday events and the craziness, we eat a lot of regular meals, too. It makes sense to make them reasonably healthy because we’re eating so much rich, decadent foods. At the same time we want something hearty and stick-to-your ribs because baby it’s cold outside.
