The Holidays have been super busy for me and I’m sure they have been the same for you as well. There has been lots of cheer, fond memories, and new goals to accomplish as I reflect during this time of the year.
Our trail cam has recorded so much wildlife in the past few months! Here are some mini-videos that I compiled into one featuring black bears, deer, and ravens enjoying the Holiday Season in their own way. Also, I added a photo gallery as a special treat. Relax and enjoy the video and photo gallery.

Here is the perfect Holiday recipe that is easy to make and delicious! Spanish chicken and shrimp paella is a crowd-pleaser because of the tasty flavor of saffron (threads) that amplifies this dish to another level. Recently, I made this dish for a Holiday potluck and everyone enjoyed it.
Paella is a versatile dish because you can combine your favorite type protein and vegetables. For this particular recipe, I used chicken fingers, shrimp, chicken and sage sausage. Other protein options you might want to consider are grilled chicken, scallops, and clams. The possibilities are endless!
Here are the ingredients you’ll need for this recipe.
Shrimps– Deveined, cleaned, and tails off.
ChickenFingers-Sliced into small pieces. I used the entire bag.
Chicken Sausage– I used frozen Applegate chicken & sage sausage. Thaw and cut into small pieces. I used the entire box. Any of your favorite sausage will work perfectly.
Green Olives-Use your favorite brand. I used the green olives with stuffed pimientos.
Capers-Adds a lovely salty flavor.
Sun-dried tomatoes-I love the sweet flavors of sun-dried tomatoes. I cut them into small strips. Grape tomatoes also work perfectly as a substitute.
White Wine -White Wine is perfect for a zesty flavor or you can substitute one lemon.
Tomato Paste-You can substitute your favorite tomato sauce if you don’t have any tomato paste in the kitchen pantry.
Chicken Broth-Another substitute that works well is beef or vegetable broth.
