My husband has a new favorite meal, pollo asado. Luckily for me, I have a favorite store, Sprouts, that sells marinated chicken "pollo asado" style and it is very decently priced. I get enough for the 2 of us (about 1.5 lbs) for about $5 and it is worth it.
Sometimes I like making everything from scratch, and sometimes I don't. This is a great meal for one of those "don't" days.

Wassail is a hot, nutritious drink with an aroma and flavor that fills the house and soul.
This is my very favorite Christmas-time drink.
For a group of 15-20 people, slowly heat on stove top or crock pot:
64 ounces apple juice
64 ounces orange juice (fresh squeezed is amazing)
3-4 cinnamon sticks (to taste)
1/2 tsp ground cloves
Heat over the stove until perfectly steamy.
Store any leftovers in the fridge and reheat on the stove top or in the microwave.
This drink makes a great pair with Snickerdoodle cookies.

My husband and I both agreed that they would make great cinnamon rolls, so I tried it today and was not disappointed.
My favorite part is that the dough is made in the bread machine. That way, the prep time/active time is cut down, which is a winner for my life.
