Since I was computer-less for much of the last couple of months, I did a lot of crafting for the holidays.
I already posted my October gift here...but it didn't take long so I got busy making other gifts.
I put together 25 bags of French Market Soup mix. The recipe is one I got out of Southern Living years ago. They have it online HERE too. I kick mine up by smashing half the beans, adding cayenne and more spices....and spicy venison sausage. (The basic recipe isn't quite robust enough for my family!)
After mixing, they look like this...
but once packaged, they all look like this...
Then I got busy during the LSU game and made a cute little grass snake for someone special. His name is George (for now.)
I am so glad I did something each month this year...it feels good to have gotten so much done. I know that I'll have last minute things to do and buy...and will have to wait to purchase certain items. But I don't feel nearly as stressed out right now as I did this time last year.
Think I'll go have a glass of wine to celebrate!
