Merry Christmas!

Happy two days before Christmas! You guys. I didn’t mean to disappear so early before Christmas, but we all came down with the flu and that put a stop to pretty much everything around here. 😛 I have officially baked one batch of cookies and my homemade marshmallows are halfway done. I am so not on top of things. Also, the dress my oldest wanted me to sew is soo close to being done and my youngest’s has now been passed off to my mom. I have lowered all expectations so it should be a Christmas after all.

Anyways, I’m popping in because our family wants to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!  We hope you have a very blessed and happy one!  We also want to thank you all for stopping in every day here at Simply Frugal, we truly appreciate each and every one of you!

I’ll be back late Sunday evening to post some Boxing Day deals in the upcoming epic Boxing Day post, but other than that, I’ll be enjoying some much needed family time until the New Year. (However, you may find a new post here and there that I have already scheduled. ;))

Merry Christmas!

A Homemade Christmas Gift: Curried Lentil Soup in Jars

After seeing the Curried Lentil Soup in jars my friend Leslie over at DefinitelyNotMartha.com put together for gifts, I knew I had to do it too! I think they’re perfect for spur of the moment gifts as well as a good idea for teacher gifts. I especially like the fact that the recipient only has to add water and the contents of the jar to enjoy!

I made up these quick labels for the jars if you’d like to use them when you put together the jars.
