I just heard my daughter say, “6 days until Christmas” while hearing my boys practice their Jingle Bells duet on the piano for their recital this morning. Ahh, the joys of Christmas. Our elf J.J., has been very mysterious and colored on our large family portrait with a dry erase marker making marks on our faces (It’s ok, it wipes off on glass). Last night, he got into my handmade gumdrop Christmas treat.

But we’re having fun having this little elf in our home for the first time (why didn’t anyone tell me about him before???)
Now onto my yummy zucchini Soup. I make it every year, but not for my family. My hubby doesn’t like zucchini’s and my kids wouldn’t touch it with a 10 foot pole. I don’t do a lot of soups. And with dad not eating it, I can’t see the introduction going over so well. My mom introduced it to me a few years ago, and I just love it. Here is the handmade invitation I made 8 years ago, the first time I had the lunch with friends:
That’s my old phone number, so don’t try calling it;) I didn’t get enough time to make an invitation with my number this year, but had a few close friends over to eat my soup. It’s even red and green…Christmas-y!
This is for 4-5 people, I double this for a group of 10. Very hearty and filling!
