Happy New Year’s Eve! This week our home will go from filled to the brim with family and fun and some toddler tantrums to quite and still. It’s always a hard adjustment for me. But life goes on as it should! So until then, I’ll be cooking big meals and soaking in every second of family time! Here’s what’s on the menu this week…
I LOVE this recipe from Dinner At The Zoo! These tacos are delicious and feed a crowd! We have our whole family still here and dinner tonight will be the biggest hit!
I’ve made this recipe several times and it is amazingly good and easy!
Happy New Year’s Eve!!! We are having a family Murder Mystery night here at the Tanglewood house! How fun! Dinner for everyone including kids and then snacks and a fun game for the grown-ups!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2020 at our home starts with lots of people and pizza! What a great combination! And did I mention paper plates? Lots of those too!
Today we have our family all here and more! So we are having a New Year’s Day BIG lunch of great local pizza and a big homemade Greek Salad. Our grandkids love olives so there will be lots of them in the salad!
I’m also making a few Tomato Galettes for the grown-ups. YUM!
Everyone is gone today and as usual, when our kids leave, our home is a bit lonely and so are we! It is always an adjustment. So tonight I’m making a scrumptious, romantic dinner for Bobby and me.
Our favorite steak is rib eye! Oh, what flavor. And my favorite way to make it is to grill it in a cast iron pan. What a delicious recipe from Butter Your Biscuit!

Today is the first normal workday for me since December 20th! With our children and grandbabies here I wanted to spend as much time as I could with them.
I’m quite excited to have a full day of work. After 10 years I still love what I do! Thank you!

- CRUSTY BREAD AND CHEESE
I can’t wait to make this delicious looking cod dish from Foodness Gracious! Thanks, Gerry! I’ll be putting this yumminess over pasta for Bobby!
SUNDAY- COMPANY’S COMING
We are having a few friends over for dinner tonight. For the most part, I no longer make 5-course fancy dinners! Too much work! Now my favorite dinner party is for six and a great dinner I can prep ahead.
I think this recipe can be prepped ahead and it really sounds so so good! What a great dish to put over a bed of couscous pilaf! See this winner, winner chicken dinner at Eatwell 101.
