Instead, we drove to the tree lot with two kids in tow. It was cold and snowing. We picked the first tree we saw; we didn't wait for anything to "speak" to us. It was a seven footer. Big Girl approved.

Now onto this week's belated menu..
Sunday night, after the decorating, I went to a dinner honoring a friend who is moving back home. It was a late night for me but worth it to celebrate our friendship and wish her well.
Monday - homemade chicken noodle soup (made with very little leftover rotisserie chicken, so it was more of a noodle soup, which we topped with fried eggs to add protein)
Tuesday - leftover spinach dip sandwiches with cherry tomatoes and grated parmesan cheese (this was great!)
Wednesday - tonight we will use up some leftover cauliflower that I braised in turkey gravy and wine (like we did last week's brussels sprouts) along with some chana masala we got from trader joe. This will all go over rice.
Thursday - we have leftover fondue cheese that we plan to top some brussels sprouts. There should probably be more to this meal, but it's still in production.
Friday - hopefully a night out that includes raw oysters and crisp winter ales!
