#ad Easy & Delicious Holiday Meal

One of my favorite parts of the holidays is hosting friends and family.  Throwing a party AND cooking dinner can seem over whelming, but it doesn't have to be!  With Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens entertaining can be not only fun but also easy.  This recipe lets you put them in your crock pot, walk away, and finish prepping for your party.
I stopped at the Fry's grocery store down the street and grabbed 2 packs of Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens.  My favorite part about them is there's nothing stuffed inside them you have to reach in and cringe as you pull it out. 
After defrosting your hens, mix thyme, sage, salt & pepper.  Stuff one sprig of rosemary & one clove of garlic inside of each hen.  Rub the outside with a slice of lemon, then sprinkle on the dry seasons.
Put on cooking sheet lined with foil and put under your oven broiler for 5-10 minutes until they skin gets nice light brown.  Then place in your slow cooker on high for 4-5 hours. 
This gives you plenty of time and free hands to make other side dishes, set the table or clean!

Carefully pull out the Tyson® Premium Cornish Hens and plate with rosemary sprigs & lemon. Elegant, gorgeous, delicious & super simple!

Favorite Printable Tags


In case you still have presents to wrap, I'm sharing my favorite sources for printable tags this year.
I seriously cannot remember the last time I bought tags from the store...the ones people design are always so much cuter!




Enjoy! & Happy Wrapping!

Glitter Reindeer Printable



I made these glittered reindeer heads to decorate up the stairs & I'm kind of obsessed with them.
Download the file (end of post) and print them out 4 per sheet, then use Elmers glue or ModPodge or Martha Stewart Decoupage with a small paintbrush to fill in the reindeer head & cover with glitter. (I found it worked best to do the antlers first then the head)
Then I glued to old book pages & used 3D photo stickers to attach brown card stock.




Obviously Rudolph gets a red nose!
