holiday storage solutions...


What goes up, must come down... It was great while it lasted, and when you decide it is time for all of the holiday decorations to come down, properly storing your them will help to ensure that they are in good shape and ready to go up next year. But before you start packing it up, you may want to give away or donate anything that you don't absolutely love. Once you have done that, and assessed your needs, here are a few storage solutions that will do the trick!

its a wrap...

If you are anything like me, you will be frantically wrapping presents the day before Christmas and realize that you are about to run out of wrapping paper! You then rush to the store in a panic, believing that there is still some chance that you aren't going to be left with the ugly sweater equivalent of wrapping paper... You stand there, for a good twenty minutes, faced with choosing the best of the worst paper that may ever have been created... Well, just forget all of the "Christmas" wrap, and head to the stationary section of Target (lets not pretend that this is not where we all end up) and pick up a roll of kraft paper! It will fit in with any paper you already have and is easy to dress up with some ribbon and gift tag. There are a number of ways to use kraft paper  for wrapping those last-minute gifts. Here are a few...

monday {menu}


{recipe from... h e r e}

Pesto Chicken Sandwiches


4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, about 6 oz. each

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

Olive oil for brushing

8 slices fontina cheese

8 slices sourdough bread

Mayonnaise (optional)

8 thick tomato slices

4 Tbs. pesto, homemade or store-bought


Season the chicken breast halves with salt and pepper and sprinkle evenly with the Italian seasoning. Brush lightly on all sides with the oil.

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over high heat. Brush and oil the grill grate.

Place the chicken on the grill directly over the fire and cook until nicely grill-marked and relatively firm to the touch, 5 to 8 minutes on each side depending on the thickness. You want the chicken to be opaque throughout but still moist and juicy inside. About 2 minutes before the chicken is ready, place 2 slices of the cheese on each breast half, cover the grill and allow the cheese to melt. Put the bread slices along the edge of the grill at the same time, and turn once after 1 minute to toast both sides.

Transfer the chicken and bread slices to a cutting board. Spread the bread slices with mayonnaise, if desired. Cut each breast half against the grain on the diagonal into 3 to 4 pieces. Arrange one sliced breast half on each of 4 bread slices. Top with 2 tomato slices, and then top the tomatoes with 1 tablespoon of the pesto, spreading it evenly over the tomatoes. Close the sandwiches with the remaining bread slices, and serve. Serves 4.
