Sweet potato Muffins in the oven and I adapted the recipe like the first link
and put coconut sugar on top. I will put most of the muffins in the freezer.
My sister always has muffins for guests. Morning guests or for tea in her freezer.
I used cashew meal flour instead of the whole wheat with bleached flour.
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen -- a favorite cooking site who adapted the recipe from Gourmet magazine

I have started to say this is the month of writing: Christmas Cards.
I also try to plan sending them when I think they will arrive.
College students now.
Far away in the states : soon.
In town : next week
Gifts: love having the doorbell ring when they arrive ( getting deals online)
Wrapping: to be done and soon so I remember who gets what and to lighten the TO DO
I baked brownies today to bring with pizza and a salad to a former student's family. The mom was in the hospital and out now. Comfort food. This made me think of Christmas cookies
which I haven't made in years because daughter did. She might when she gets home.

Song from GOLDEN HOURS : a blog by Lanier Ivester and her friend on Christmas
where the title comes from:
I did get a little overwhelmed Monday night—can’t even remember why now. But it was a very near Christmas-spirit-fail and took a great long talk with Philip, including a bunch of strategizing for the following day, in what he’s now calling The Battle for Christmas.

My book stack for this week of Advent:
Reading with my students reading the author who was a pop star in his time... I call this A.C.C. by C.D. AND we will act out some scenes.
There is a chapter on Christmas in this book. I will reread some of Miss Read's Christmas stories too.
Hope to get to this book soon.....mine has a Christmas tree as the book cover
