Menu Mondays

Well folks -- it's time! It's Thanksgiving week!
Since we just moved into our house 3 weeks ago, I'm not hosting. (Secretly, I am thrilled about this. I love cooking -- just not when there's pressure to perform!)

We'll be headed back to my hometown to have Thanksgiving with my family. Which makes this week short...

Sunday: Shortbread Cookie Bites (as a trial for whether I want to make them for Christmas), Tacos with Rice/Black Beans for dinner
Monday: Steak and steamed broccoli
Tuesday: Taco leftovers
Wednesday: On the road -- headed for Butler, Pa
Thursday: Thanksgiving with Mom and Grandma -- 3 generations sharing a kitchen (SAVE ME!)
Friday: Still in Butler visiting family

I do have a project for the (few) readers I have, though...

I'm trying to decide which types of Christmas cookies I'll make this year. I'll have to make them all the weekend prior to Christmas, though, because I can't take any time off from work that week to do so.

So... what's your favorite Christmas cookie? (And if it's one that keeps well for 1 week+, even better!!)

I start making my cookies on 12/1 - they all go in the freezer in ziplock bags. I make bars in 9x13 pans - cute them into 4 big squares and freeze the squares.
Good luck.
