Well, where has the time gone? We are in the heat of December (or the chill? You know what I mean…), and the holidays are fast approaching. Christmas concerts, holiday parties, cheer and merriment. And of course FOOD! Food is love and as you spend time with friends and family the urge to overindulge surrounds us. I know I have just started a string of holiday coffee dates, wine lunches, and holiday beverages.
Snacking, parties, potlucks and open-houses. It can be hard to find dishes easy to take with you that are tasty and affordable to make. And healthy. And easy. These paleo jalapeno poppers can be vegan if your omit the bacon- I know I would be sad to see the bacon go, because, hello…bacon, but it is a versatile appetizer. And when you use red and green peppers they kind of look like a string of old school Christmas lights! Cool. Playing with your food is fun.
Have you finished your Christmas shopping? I haven’t started mine. But I did get organized enough to send cards. Funny story: I bought my Christmas cards last year. Not in January when they go on sale, I bought these in November, and had every intention of sending them last year. I failed. I am in the liquor business so the month of December is hectic: stocking and selling cheer. And well, I forgot about them, they ended up in a pile. It must have been meant to be, I discovered them stacked neatly in said pile at the beginning of this month. So a year late, but none the wiser, I sent out my last years cards. Except I just gave away my secret. Shoot. I only had to find a couple envelopes to change addresses, my friends don’t move much. Last year I didn’t get around to personalized messages inside (thankfully) so I took care of that this year. Look at me ahead of schedule! They are even stamped and mailed. I am entirely impressed with myself, but when I really think of it, I am a full year behind. I wonder if I should purchase next years cards now and put them in a pile? Feels like it might be too organized!
Now about that Christmas shopping… I have lots of time… right?
Have a safe and happy Holiday season from Raj and Holley at www.ThePrimalDesire.com!
