Disclosure:I was asked to participate in the #HolidayPower, sponsored by Schneider Electric. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
Jayden moved out of home over the summer. I was heartbroken, but he had always told me that when he started college he wanted to move out, and so he moved in with one of his best friends.
This is something that we simply don't do in Australia. I don't know anybody who left home to live in a dorm, or with friends. You simply lived at home and commuted to the closest University that offered the classes you were interested in. I'm probably showing my age right now, aren't I, or maybe this was just where I grew up?
It's his birthday next week (he'll be turning 19), and Christmas is just around the corner, so it's important for me to come up with gift ideas that he'll love but that are also functional now that he's living away from home and a full time college student.
Here are some things I think he would love ... okay, maybe the cushion is just something I would love.
During the holiday season there's a lot to think about when entertaining at home.
The most important questions you need to ask yourself are:
How many guests will there be?
What will the menu be?
What is the timeframe for our party?
Have I made sure I have enough space on the hot plates and oven to prepare all of these dishes? If not, are there some that I can make ahead of time?
I do to stick to the rule though of not everything has to be homemade. Because it just doesn't. I always have a few staple items that are homemade, for example my cranberry sauce, turkey and dessert, but when it comes to appetizers I try to have one homemade or semi-homemade item, and the rest will be store bought. Because it just makes sense to not spend every waking moment of Thanksgiving or Christmas slaving away in the kitchen.
I love seeing my work featured around the web and in print, however, please only use one image (which should be credited and linked to the original post) and do not re-publish recipes or tutorials. Thank you.
