Holiday Hoorah!

Hi Guys!!!
I am still here :)  I have not fallen off of the face of the planet, I've just been hit, and run over with holiday prep and birthdays.  Good times!
Now on to this weeks meeting, HOLY SMOKES!!  Do any of you feel a bit stressed with all of the hustle and bustle of the season?  We have so many things competing for our precious time and energies, worrying about money, parties, can really get to us.  This week in the meetings, we will be learning to deal with this stress, and meeting our needs in healthier, more productive ways.  Oh man, this a GOOD meeting!
Oh, there is a GREAT new recipe below from a fantastic member :)  YUMMY!
Come on in!  I can't wait to see you!
