Happy “almost” Christmas week!!! This week we’re celebrating Christian’s birthday – he’s going to be 9 years old and I don’t think I can take it. I’ve loved sharing my birthday month with my son – I’ve dubbed him my birthday buddy. Only people who share a birthday as close to Christmas as us understand what a challenge having a Christmas birthday can really be. We’re both within a week or so, and it’s really nice to have a birthday friend to kind of commiserate with.
Speaking of recipes, Josh and I made this “Merry Mocktail” from Pinch of Yum over the weekend. We like to make drinks that the kids can also enjoy during the holiday season, and this one is definitely yummy! It has a beautiful flavor profile with cloves, rosemary, and pomegranate, and it is just delightful!
On to this week’s menu! As we ease into the actual holiday week, my cooking gets simpler and slightly easier. I don’t like to complicate anything when our schedules begin to pick up with holiday fun!
