This is our front porch - I'm going to light the tealights in these lanterns when we entertain next!
My mom was able to help me salvage these wreaths. I had three hanging on our front window and we tried to string lights on them - except we only had enough for two. It was not cute - not cute at all. It looks much better, trust me. Thanks, mom.

In case you've forgotten, my aim is to inspire homemade cooking! I am cooking lots lately - I have a luncheon for 21 tomorrow plus Emma's birthday party in the evening.
Here are some of the ingredients for my baked potato soup (or as Mrs P likes to call it, devil soup).
Yesterday I made molasses cookies, lemon bars, and a flourless chocolate cake. Today I'll be making baked potato soup, leek and goat cheese quiche, and a batch of cinnamon rolls. I'm not kidding. We are invited to watch the student speeches in Kate's class today - so I thought I'd take in cinnamon rolls for Christmas presents for her teacher, principal, and school secretaries. Kate is doing a presentation on Ruth Graves Wakefield - she invented the Toll House Cookie. I'm making a batch of cookies for her to share at the end of her presentation. She's worked so hard to learn her speech and they worked on power point presentations in school. **
I'll take lots of pictures of the presentations, the celebrations, and most of all - the food that we enjoy over the next few days - stay tuned!
