Menu Monday

Look at this!  It's Monday and I actually remembered to do Menu Monday!

 

So it's kind of sad that I have so little to show you.

 

However, I can share my Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread, which I brought to my office Xmas potluck:

 

 

In it's intact state as well as sliced:

 

 

Plus a lovely view of the swirly innards:

 

 

Very yummy stuff.

 

I also made Honey Garlic Chicken last week:

 

 

Very easy--just put in marinade in the evening and shove in the oven when you get home the next day.  Delicious and easy.

 

Finally, a holiday treat that my family loves--Nuts & Bolts.  I'm making them gluten-free nowadays, but they are still a hit.  (Perhaps because we all seem to have a weakness for salt, rather than sugar):

 

 

Hopefully, I'll have more time for cooking and testing some new recipes over the Christmas vacation.

 

In the meantime, friends, enjoy your Christmas treats!
