Tis the season for company & entertaining! I LOVE having friends and family over to celebrate the festivities, but in doing so, I don’t want to be a slave to the kitchen! Having a fewOnce A Month Mom meals ready in the freezer has been a real life saver over the holidays and allowed me to step away from the kitchen to mingle with our guests. To keep things simple – I normally just make a table FULL of  hot/ cold  appetizers for everyone to indulge in throughout the evening. Not a typical appetizer, but one that seemed to disappear quickly was the “Spinach Lasagna Roll-ups”. They were the PERFECT size – not too big, not too small! I also heated up the “Vegan Enchilada Casserole” and crushed some red and green tortilla chips on top for a “festive” look. The “Winter Pizza” also made a FABULOUS appetizer, with everyone asking for the recipe. With the kids being out of school for winter break,  and not needing to rush out the door for anything, we have been able to have a couple lazy mornings hanging out in our pj’s and enjoying the ” Apple Crisp Muffins”  as a mid morning treat. They are extra YUMMY warmed in the microwave and topped with a little coconut oil – GREAT paired with a hot cup of tea!! I have had such a positive experience with “Once A Month Mom”. I honestly feel that everyone, would benefit with this service – whether you are a mom or not. Not having to worry about meals on so many occasions has been so helpful!!
