As much as I hate to perpetuate junk food (sometimes food) during the holidays…I want to give you a half-healthy alternative to ice cream, chocolate cake, orange sticks, and pecan pie.
This is the caramel apple bar, apple sundae bar, apple dipping, or whatever else you want to call it. This is easy and definitely a sometimes food, but if you’re looking for a fast party to plan or a friend gathering where you’ll crowd around the table together, this is it. As a special treat, this is fun for adults and kids! We done this with a group of friends and also with our own children with success. …
Warm blankets. Warm feet. Warm cider. Warm hearts. Isn’t that what this holiday season is about. Yes, yes it is.
Sometimes I get tired of my typical breakfasts: 1) almond butter with toast and an apple for breakfast, 2) english muffin with avocado and tomato on it, or 3) green smoothie with granola. Sometimes I just want something warm and savory and exploding with flavor.
This is that thing. This is your new breakfast. …
Sometimes easiest is best.
My husband’s main contribution to taking care of the house this past week has been helping with the dishes – easy. Means one less thing for me.
We talked to our oldest son about the truth of Santa (mentioned here) – it happened right before bed this past weekend. We didn’t make a fuss, I held in my tears, but it went over easy and matter-of-fact. We talked about Santa being part of the Spirit of Christmas and recruited him to help us keep that for the other two kids.
I ordered boots online so I don’t have to search for my size in-store – easy, but since all of them didn’t work, today I was on return duty. I think I’m giving up on my brown riding boot search for the year. I think it might be easier to accept that I won’t find any that fit my wide 11 feet.
I really enjoy waking up 45 minutes before the kids need to get up – easy…maybe not always, but worth it. I love the morning silence and although it’s a sleep sacrifice, the tone it sets to my morning creates ease….
