Joy to the World

December 1, 2009 at 9:12 AM 7 comments


I hope your day month is starting off on a high note. I love this month for so many reasons – gift giving, twinkling lights, snowmen, baking, peppermint, family traditions, stockings, cozy fires, the list is endless…

…and gingerbread houses : ) I made this entire house from scratch my senior year of high school in my Restaurant Occupations class – the best assignment ever! Can you spot Rudolph?

Of course I had to fix myself a cup of Candy Cane Lane Green Tea first thing this morning, and to go along…a bowl of PB&J bran.

  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oat bran
  • 1 heaping T each PB & apricot jam
  • splash of skim milk

Look at that steam!

What do enjoy most about this time of year?

    Oh my goodness amazing gingerbread house! So impressed! I tried to make one once and it was a disaster! I’ve been a kit only gal since then on…maybe I’ll give it another go this year…

    My favorite thing about the holidays is the food (of course) and seeing family and friends! Have a lovely day girlie!
