Welcome to the weekend, my friends! I’m enjoying the post-Thanksgiving holiday break so very much. I spent most of yesterday on the couch with my feet up and a book in hand. It was absolutely lovely and I plan to repeat that as much as possible through the weekend.

If I get especially ambitious today, we might even put up the Christmas tree. Are you a real Christmas tree or an artificial Christmas tree kind of person? (Would you believe I have never had a real tree?)

First things first, I am SUPER excited to finally tell you more about my partnership with Butcher Box and I’ll be sharing more about it on the blog on Monday. But right now, as an email subscriber, you’re getting a sneak peek. Butcher Box is a meat delivery service with Grass Fed Beef, Heritage Breed Pork, and Free Range Chicken. There’s free shipping on every order and you can cancel at any time. Everything is included in the subscription price!

Don't miss the special deal they’ve put together just for Barefeet In The Kitchen readers. FREE Bacon for LIFE. They will add a package of bacon to every single order you make for the life of your subscription. Yeah, it’s every bit as cool as it sounds. Use the link http://bit.ly/BaconforLifeBFK to check it all out to be sure you get the special deal!

ON THE BLOG this week: These Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Lemon Butter Sauce are a dreamy winter vegetable dish that you’re going to be craving again as soon as you make them the first time.

Did you catch my recap of our trip to Park City, UT? If ever there was a place I’d happily return to again just for the views, this was it. What an experience.

What I’m CRAVING: all the Thanksgiving leftovers, plus this Creamy Turkey Noodle Soup, the Best Ham Sandwich You’ll Ever Eat, and this Turkey Pot Pie. (I’ve made that recipe for pot pie after Thanksgiving several years now and it’s a keeper!)

My FAVORITE THING this week are these fun socks (link HERE). I first mentioned them in a newsletter a couple years ago and I’ve since gifted them to countless friends. I’m so happy that our weather has cooled off enough at last for me to wear mine.

What I’m LISTENING to: this awesome selection of Christmas music (link HERE) I adore Christmas music and I’m also one of those people who waits until after Thanksgiving to listen. As of today, I will be listening to as much Christmas happiness as possible.

What I’m WATCHING: Timeline (link HERE) If you’re a fan of sci fi or time travel or action or.. pretty much any movie with Gerard Butler and Paul Walker, you’ll probably enjoy this one. Cheesy at times and still fun, this is a movie that almost does justice to the book. (But as always, Michael Crichton’s book (link HERE) was so much better!)

“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.” - Charles Dickens

Wishing you a beautiful week full of little things that make you smile!
