I had not slept more than five hours a night in over four years. I was a woman who used to sleep ten, eleven hours a night. Sleep was so sweet to me I could taste it. I could taste a good nap like a bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwich on fresh French bread. It was not only the rest I missed. I missed my dreams, God, I missed my dreams. Even the dark ones. –Rebecca Wells, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Children need nutritious foods to grow and to function. Many American adolescents skip breakfast by choice either because they do not have the time to eat or in order to lose weight. In addition, many school-aged children depend onjunk foods for their nourishment. Studies on American adolescents show that, in general, they have inadequate intake of fruit, vegetables, and whole grains. More than one-third of their daily intake comes from eating snacks between meals. These snacks include high-fat fast-food items such as cheeseburgers and potato chips. American teens consume more than a third of their calories from saturated fats.
Please make thoughtful food and life choices
This year we celebrated the holiday season together. With busy schedules, we planned for a Tuesday night. I can’t stress enough how important it is to try and make a little time for your friends. As we get older, it seems increasingly harder to keep up on a personal level. I’m so glad we did this. Finding even a couple of hours to have a nice night with your best friends is something we need to find time to do.
Kristina, the beautiful hostess spent all day slaving over a hot stove and oven preparing this beautiful feast. Everything was made from scratch. No boxes or cans here. Literally, you could taste the love.
It was such a wonderful evening, and I can’t wait to do it again. To the ever lovely hostess, she nailed it! What a lovely time!
ps. We played Taboo (I pretty much rock!)
One thing I get asked a lot is, ‘What are some cheap, bulk gifts I can make for Christmas?’. Well guys, I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like homemade food. And Country Living has 29, count em’ 29 tutorials for you to pick from! Personally, I would love the Cinnamon Sugar Lattice Cookies, the Pretzels with Brown Sugar Rosemary Dijon, or the Gourmet Marshmallows. I myself plan on making the incredibly easy but visually appealing Peppermint Sticks!
