Goodbye November! / Random

I can't believe how fast time is going! I feel like we just moved, we've been in the new house for 5 months already! Well, so far so good. Thanksgiving turned out really well and I'm hoping Christmas will be even better. I don't have alot of money to do gifts this year but being here in a new place definitely feels like a Christmas present. I'm really happy to bring in the New Year here as well.

This is what happens when Mommy is tired... we have GF 7up cake with lemon & lime zest in it that my mommy made and LF ice cream for an after school snack.

(This is random) Ok, so I feel this is how your plate should look on Sundays for "Sunday Dinner" which I don't do lol! I was able to pretend like I made Sunday Dinner with the help of the leftovers from Thursday! 

Alright! the December Menu is up!! decorated by me and The Lil Chef! I rolled over the food that I was supposed to make in November and never got around to. I doubt if I make all of this because I am cooking for Christmas and New Year's.
I am really excited about the Salted Caramel Popcorn though! The Lil Chef is really looking forward to the Chicken and Broccoli stir fry again.
We'll see how much of this I get around to. (I know I'm far in advance with this but I definitely want to make myself some lamb for my 35th Bday in January!!!)

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
