What We Ate November 26 - December 9



I was sick last Monday and didn't write a "What We Ate" post so you're getting two week's worth of menus this time.  

Looking back, I see that we've been eating pretty high off the hog (for us) recently.  I had a restaurant meal one night and we enjoyed an amazing dinner cooked for us by our daughter and son-in-law.  'Tis the season, right?

I've also been doing a lot of baking for my posts on A Word For Aunt B.  The baking is a bonus for us, because it's paid for out of my blogging budget so we're enjoying treats that wouldn't normally be provided for in our grocery budget. (Well, my fella is anyway.  I've been pretty good about keeping out of the cookie tins. :)

Here's what we ate:
