Everyone can relate to a busy schedule and it only gets busier in the month of December. There are work parties, school concerts and church programs; not to mention battling the crowds to finish shopping! On a day when it’s been complete chaos at work or the kids have activities and you need to be in two places at once, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to grab something out of the freezer and have supper ready in a short time so you can actually spend time with your family? Yes! So wouldn’t it be a great idea to give a gift from your kitchen? Homemade soup or a casserole would be a nice gift idea along with paper plates and plastic silverware to make cleanup quick! J Not only does the gift have a more personal touch, you can save money, control the ingredients involved and give a little piece of your heart. J You can give a single item or get creative and give a ‘theme’ basket. If you’re giving homemade cookies, add a few festive cookie cutters, your favorite cookie recipe, and holiday pot holder. A few minutes of your time and some creativity will carry a lot of meaning to that special someone receiving your gift.
*Thought for the day*
Think what a better world it would be if we all had cookies and milk at three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankies for a nap. J
