My husband and I have been married for about five years and we never really got to spend the holidays at home with just us. We’re either visiting family or he is away for work. Whenever we do get a chance to be together for the holidays, we make traditions for our own little family. For Thanksgiving we go on family walks (usually a couple of miles) early in the morning before things get to busy. It gives us a chance to connect and relax a little. Another tradition we’ve held onto since childhood is opening one present on Christmas Eve.
Christmas Day is usually time for me to be in the kitchen, even if I cooked a lot of the Christmas food the day before. Sometimes it wears me out, but I still enjoy it. What I don’t enjoy is having to spend time in the kitchen on Christmas Eve trying to figure out what’s for dinner that night. I’ve decided to make it a tradition to have a Betty Crocker™ Turkey Sausage and Potato Casserole on Christmas Eve. It’s easy and delicious and for a limited time they have a .50 off of 2 boxes coupon available. Also, if you enter the giveaway below, one of you lucky readers will win a $15 PayPal gift card to purchase your own Betty Crocker™ Potato mix. Good luck and enjoy the recipe!
