Plan Ahead, Make-Ahead & Getting Ready For The Party! 8 Day Finger Foods & Cookies Christmas Menu

Hi Everyone!

Well it's 10 days before Christmas and my house cleaning and decorating are done!  I have some fun stuff I'll be doing now in the next 8 days (Wed,17 Dec 14 thru Christmas Day, 25 Dec 14) that I want to share with you.  Each day, I will be in my kitchen, preparing for the holidays!  I like to prep for the holidays and I have some ideas and recipes that I plan to share with you each day, to plan in advance for the guests that will be coming! 

So, follow me this week as I work out of my kitchen. By Christmas Day, you will be popping for your party because everything is ready to bake from the jar, rub & season down, take from the freezer to the oven and perfect, just in time for the party.  Here's some of what you will see from my kitchen, so follow and let me help you plan ahead for your holiday party! 

Oh yea, I forgot to mention that I promised I would share our Christmas home decor with you now that we are finally done!  Tour Our Christmas Home Decor on the "Open House Tour" post I sent out today! Me and my hubby worked hard to get our decorations up this year ;-), so I want you to see them!!

xoxo & Merry Christmas!!!!
