A Lazy Monday Morning

I have just been plain lazy today, and have enjoyed every minute of it! Not something I have the luxury of doing very often. Such a pleasant time for contemplating, planning, reading blogs and checking up on needlework friends. We spent a fairly quiet Christmas...thankfully, all 3 kids were home for a couple of days. As in recent years, since we've been staying at home for Christmas, rather than going to Roanoke to spend the day with our families, we've opted to enjoy a spread of "finger" foods, rather than a Christmas meal. I am pretty sure I spend more time cooking the "finger" foods than I would cooking a large meal. And, we still have SO many leftovers...if only they would keep for a week until time for bowl game watching! Here was my menu:

Ham biscuits

Crockpot meatballs

Pineapple Cheese Ball w/ crackers

Bleu Cheese/Pecan cheese ball w/ crackers

Hot Virginia Dip w/ crackers

Vegetable tray

Assorted cheese cubes

Crab Ball w/ crackers

Chex mix

Assorted cookies


Oh, and then there was the Christmas morning breakfast:

Breakfast Casserole (hash browns, eggs, cheddar cheese, and Bacon)


Sausage Gravy

No surprise here, Weight Watchers starts back next Tuesday-after the Orange Bowl on Monday night, tee-hee!

Lastly, for this post, I have to mention how excited I am to have found a new online discussion board for sampler lovers.. I visited this morning, saw lots of familiar cross stitch friends there. Especially excited to have read about the Crazy January Challenge 2011...start a new project every day for the first 15 days of the month, with good intentions of finishing those projects in 2011. Just the incentive I need to get my stitching groove back! I need to spend some time tomorrow going through my stash and deciding which 15 projects to start. I will post my list when I have made my mind up. All for now, must go to work.
