Deck the Halls
Deck the Halls
One of my fondest Christmas memories is being a kid in general. Making a list, send it off to the North Pole, and make sure I behaves because Santa was always on the look out! Then preparing cookies and milk for Santa, because you know how much Santa loves his cookies!! Then I would run upstairs, get into bed, and hope to hear the sled bells! --sigh!
Then waking up Christmas morning, and running to the tree to see if I received any presents!! Oh, I so wish I could go back to those days! But I do realize that things get better as you get older, and that eventually I will be able to experience those type of memories with my future children..
I can't wait to read everyone elses "Favorite Christmas memories."
There are still some gifts that I need to get, maybe one more trip to Michael's, and Target, but it shouldn't be too bad.
I think I might compile a to-do-list later!! We shall see!!
I hope you all have a fantastic week!!!
With the recent cold temperatures, I've decide to incorporate something hot & yummy..So of course the first thing that came into mind was hot chocolate!!
It's a simple recipe for a cold day out..
4 cups milk
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate, grated
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Put milk into a microwave-safe container and cook on High in microwave for 2 minutes. Mix in chocolate, sugar, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk an egg until smooth, then mix into chocolate mixture.
Return to microwave and cook on High for 3 minutes or until foamy (Do not let it boil.) Whisk until smooth and pour into mugs.
*Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon if desired and marshmallows*
-Serving for 4
I haven't had a chance to finish putting up all our Christmas decorations, so check back next week for pictures :)

Day 14 - Oprah's Favorite Things: What items I would like to receive if I was part of her studio audience?
I don't watch Oprah, but i have seen clips of "favorite things" episodes in the news. People crying, ect. Very comical! But if I had the chance of winning something in her audience, I would like:

This week I'm combining "Recipe Wednesday" with Day 9 of this Christmas Challenge.. When it comes to favorite recipes, I love to bake desserts! Desserts + Christmas = Heaven!
Especially Paula Deen's recipes! You can always count on her for yummy desserts. Not only are they delicious, but they are easy to make for any holiday gathering. I am planning to do lots of baking this holiday season, and lots of eating too..--Just a little!
Here are some of my favorite Paula Deen recipes:
Another great Febreeze product! This I use to freshen up the furniture & carpet.
*A helpful trick: I pour a little bit of Pine-sol in the bathroom garbage basket. It give the bathroom a great scent, and it's especially great for when you are having company over!
