These two sound great!
Real Italian Calzones look easy and delicious! They’re going on the menu this week!
I’m thinking that the ‘Day Before Payday’ Kielbasa and Corn Hash recipe is going to come in handy this month too!

Random Facts & Fun

This month’s full moon, “Full Cold Moon“, occurs tomorrow night, Dec. 2nd.

If conditions are right, make some hot chocolate and bundle the kids up to watch the Geminid meteor showers! They peak the night of December 13th & 14th! Hope for clear moonless skies for best viewing! “If you can see each star of the Little Dipper then your chosen site is probably dark enough.”
