My weekend . . .

My weekend consisted of . . .

Decorating my mantel in the den (off of the kitchen) . . . .here's a sneak peak
May add a few more touches, but I kinda wanted a simple look. Sometimes less is more . . .

I baked some Christmas cookies for my lovely. . . . .



I only ate one the entire weekend! I was good!

I worked on a wreath in our dining room that I have hanging over a mirror. I started with a B&W theme on it and used something from our wedding. Then I decided to place some berries in it for a little pop of color. I'll show more later, but for now here's a sneak peak . . . .

I made Mike something he's been wanting me to make for a while now . . . .Buffalo Chicken Lasagna. I wasn't so sure about it when I first heard it. I thought it sounded like a gut buster, ha ha! But since it calls for chicken breast, I figured that made it a little better for you instead of ground beef, not as much fat. It was really good and I want to make it again. I used a recipe from Good Morning America and it was a crock pot recipe. I just had to bake the chicken first and chop a few veggies. I threw it all in there and then Friday night when I got home, dinner was ready! Love that! It was really good! I think I'll try it again sometime using another recipe and do it in the oven, just to compare. You can find the recipe I used from GMA here.
