An Ode to 30 Minute Meals (16 - 30 Minute Meals - Something for Everyone)

Time seems to be more and more precious these days. 
The holiday's are our busy season for our holiday collectible company (beyora.com).  Chad is just winding down our design firm with one last blog redesign before the season starts (e3studios.com).  That with the normal hustle and bustle of the Christmas season leaves little time for anything else.

We have to schedule time to go look at Christmas lights.  Otherwise, we will get so caught up in work and forget.  Next thing you know it is January.  Well, I am doing everything I can  to get a better handle on our time this year. I am convinced that my friends will see us more than just at our annual Christmas party and we will have time to take part in our Munchkins Christmas festivities.  You know, trip to see Santa and so on. 

Have I mentioned she wants a drum set?  Well, lets thank Daddy and Papa for that.  The musicians in the family.  Well, I say go for it.  I think if she wants to be a drummer, that is awesome!  I also say, put ear plugs on my Christmas list.  {{{Santa, in case I forget to write you a letter.  Take this as a personal note.  I am sure you read our blog.}}}
