Mansfield Magazine's November/December 2017 In This Issue - Spirit of the Season

Dec 12, 2017 12:44AM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger

Holiday Greetings

 
The end-of-the-year rush to the holidays is upon us. Of course, signs of the holidays have been in retail stores for what seems like months now. Still, it’s a great time of year to enjoy friends and family and to take time to refocus on what we have and maybe even reassess some priorities. We’ve spent time preparing what we hope will be a positive, fun and even encouraging issue of Mansfield Magazine.
 
First up, I got to meet with Teresa Washington over at The Caring Place. She is a special person who is carrying out a special task within our community. As the new developmental director at the non-profit center, she is helping citizens in the community get the kind of healthcare they need when they don’t have access or can’t afford it. Now that’s a purpose that fits right in with the season. Teresa’s own story is unique and I think you’ll feel blessed by reading about her and what’s going on at The Caring Place.
 
Of course the holiday season means cooking, baking and eating so we’ve taken care to include plenty of that in this issue, starting with Homestyle. Aly Yale has put together a game plan that will help you tackle the next cookout or tailgate with swagger. Everything from handling the invitations to planning the menu, festivities and décor is all included here. And if you are planning a tailgate or some other kind of get-together, don’t miss Cookin’ with Carol. There’s lots to discover here, as Carol states, “From grab-and-go snacks, to comforting meals, here are some ideas that are equally at home on a holiday entertaining buffet as they are when bursting forth from the tailgate in a crowded parking lot.”
 
One more note on the subject of food. Don’t miss making a visit to Sugar Bee Sweets Bakery in Arlington during the holidays. Heidi Allison has crafted a bakery that serves up the sweets from weddings cakes to special occasions and simple cupcakes. The bakery is even open for breakfast now. It’s a great place to meet a friend or pick up something for your next party. Read more about it in Local Flavor.
 
Everything else that is regularly featured in Mansfield Magazine is here – even a quirky Roadtrip excursion this time. We hope you enjoy this issue and that you enjoy the holiday season with your family and friends.
 
Best wishes!
