Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Fudge

We have been in a baking and making mode around here. Baylee has proven to be the perfect cookie ball roller.

We are in the process of making sugar cookies for all of our neighbors. These may be the best sugar cookies on earth.

Lunch:

I also have had this lunch more often than not. It has been my go too lately. Crockpot shredded chicken, yellow squash, zucchini, mushrooms and asparagus, topped with avocado.

I even add sweet potato if I have some on hand. Quick and simple! Especially when it is left overs Winking smile

Well, I am off to teach a boot camp class and then have to do some “elf errands” for the big guy and then have Body Pump later tonight followed right after a Christmas party with Brent’s mom and family. The Bement family has the tradition to do a mexican themed dinner, we have enchiladas, tacos, and do a pinata! We actually used the pinata to announce that I was pregnant with the twins one year! (Before we even knew it was twins!) It is a tradition I always look forward too. The pinata.. not announcing another pregnancy..Winking smile
