Tis the season for making, baking, cooking, and being merry. Let’s jump right in!
I made seitan for the first time this Thanksgiving. It tasted good and wasn’t as complicated as I thought, but I actually think I prefer mock meat-like stuff either in something, like a stew or casserole, or not at all. I think next year we will have some lovely stuffed squash instead.
I wrapped all the kids gifts. I have one left for Hope and then the homemade thing I am making for Atticus. I find that discussing the nitty gritty of gift buying for kids seems taboo. I may do a post after Christmas on how much we spend, how we shop, and what we decide to buy. Would that be interesting or boring/weird?
Christmas cards are underway! I also have my bake list figured and my secret santa swap stuff went out today.
Here are the beginnings of Atticus’s blanket. I’m much further along now with it. Maybe it will be done by Christmas?
That’s what’s up at my Christmas village, let me know what holiday projects are underway in your neck of the woods!
