...and the Shoppers Rush Home with Their Treasures!

What a month it has been! Or a couple of months for that matter! I thought I had my Christmas all "wrapped up" at the beginning of the month but I find myself busier and behinder than ever as the days march along. How can this possibly be??

I signed up for a recipe swap at the last possible minute. What kind of fool am I? Being an ace procrastinator and a struggler of ideas, I thought it would behoove me to go another step and sign up for three spots. I think I need my head examined. Oh, did that already, too.

Because I was terrified to let my husband know I had committed to another thing, I was trying to be sneaky about working on this swap - like in between stamping gift tags and Christmas cards. I didn't quite get away with it and he found me out... but not until I was almost completely done. I got them into the mail only one day late. That could be some sort of record!

The swap was 6x6 Crock Pot Recipes, CTMH products only since the players were all CTMH consultants.

Chicken soft tacos is my submission for the Main Dish category. I chose the colors based on the Mexican flag.

German Potato Salad is my Side Dish entry. Also based on flag colors, Germany this time, Black, Red & Gold.

My final submission is in the Desserts category, Cinnamon Raisin Bread Pudding in shades of browns. I should get 5 more back in these categories - I'll share them when I do.

Merry Christmas!!
