First off, I hope you all had a blessed Christmas. Did any of you get cookbooks for Christmas? I got a couple – an Amish one that I didn’t have (can you imagine that? Thanks Kristi!) and one full of crockpot recipes that you wouldn’t think of (Thanks Tracy!). Our Christmas was nice and relaxing. We spent the morning here at our house, and then we loaded up the buggy with dinner and gifts to head to my parents’ house. We enjoyed spending the rest of the day with Mom, Dad, and Emma. Danny took Emma on a nice long Christmas walk too. She loved that. We kept celebrating it all this week in the evenings visiting those we couldn’t see on Christmas day. And with a busy week at work with month and year end, I didn’t have time to get any winners announced until now.
So, for last week’s Tasty Tuesday contest (the soup and meatloaf mixes and Christmas book), we had 21 comments posted. I had hubby pick a number between 1 and 21, and he picked 10. The 10th comment was left by Diana (joeym11). Congratulations Diana! I will get your package in the mail to you next week.
And then for last week’s Winning Wednesday contest (Nestle cookbook & chips and two Amish Christmas books), we had 15 comments posted. Hubby picked 13 this time. The 13th comment was left by Jane Harrah. Congratulations Jane! I will also get your package in the mail to you next week.
It will feel like Christmas just a little bit longer for you both.
Next week’s Tasty Tuesday post will include a recipe for one of the cookies I baked for Christmas. I’ll be sharing a few cookie recipes with you over the next few weeks.
Since I missed this past Wednesday’s Winning Wednesday post, I’m going to have an End of the Year prize pack.
As you can see, this New Year’s Eve prize pack includes three books by Beth Shriver – “Annie’s Truth”, “Grace Given”, and “Clara’s Wish”, Wanda & Jean Brunstetter’s “The Lopsided Christmas Cake”, and Gooseberry Patch’s “Big Book of Holiday Cooking”. There is lots of good reading to be had as well as cooking too.
To have your name entered in for a chance to win this prize pack, just leave a comment telling me what your favorite Christmas gift was – it can be a material gift or a person being home for Christmas, etc. You have until January 5th to leave your comments. Good luck!
I hope you all have a safe and Happy New Year. I hope your 2017 is a healthy, fun-filled, faith-filled, love-filled year.
