Some days you’ve just got to buckle up and go for it!  It’s been like that for us today with work, school, appointments, after school clubs and then…the first Concert of the season.  My young man is performing tonight and we are so excited! We are ready to hear some Christmas music and happiness will abound!
With all this, I still need to get some food into these boys without a lot of cooking or trouble.  Hunter’s favorite grilled chicken legs are sweet with a spicy kick and with a side of Sunshine fruit salad, we are ready for the evening.  It’s TINSEL time!!
