Hey yall….well if you were following along this weekend on instagram you know that my weekend was full of puppy goodness. We had a ball with Chloe this weekend! We picked her up on Friday around noon….Stella came with us too. Our friend Trisha from Forest Glen Goldens was thrilled to see Stella and have her romp with Stella’s pop, Solei and her mama Savannah. Chloe has been such a fun addition—and puppy breath is heavenly;)
If you could only take 3 chocolate bars on a deserted island for a whole year….what would you take? Mine would be 100 grand, Whatchamacallit and something toffee (that is my answer today….I have been known to be wishy-washy on this subject…) Anywho, I needed to take a dessert to our basketball team dinner a few weeks back and these one bowl toffee blondies were perfect.
Winter arrived here this weekend….and I loved it! I’m weird like that I guess….I like to get all bundled up and go out for a walk…when it’s zero outside. I wouldn’t be happy living in a place that doesn’t have a winter….mind you by the end of February….I am ready for Spring…but I do love a really cold frosty day. Hubs bought me a new parka for Christmas….highly recommend this one from Eddie Bauer if you are looking for one. He bought me a NorthFace…but I ended up taking it back for this one…I liked the style of it a bit more…and just a warm. Here is a warm and toasty homemade waffle to make on these bitter cold mornings….super easy…promise:)
Friends…family…folks….step away from the bisquick. You do NOT need it!! It is filled with not-so-great stuff and making your own waffle or pancake mix takes like 2 seconds…seriously and for real. I know that my dad is now throwing things at his computer because I was basically raised on Bisquick….it’s fine in a pinch….but this recipe makes a light, airy and preservative FREE waffle…yummo! Sorry dad…this is better!!!
So….dang it’s hard to get out of pj’s after you’ve been in them for 5 days am I right?!?! Goodness we had a fabulously lazy Thanksgiving weekend. I love it when nothing is on the calendar and we can just chill….and chill we did. We decorated and baked and watched movies (A Gift Wrapped Christmas on Lifetime is a front runner right now for the sappiest and cutest Holiday movie…but of course time will tell..) Ahhhh….it was so much fun. Back to reality…sort of…hubs and I leave for the beach on Wednesday for a little R&R….excited to see the beach:)
You know I am a sucker for a good party favor….I have done several in the past. I like to switch it up a bit:) Found this easy recipe for beer bread and some cool local brew bottles….a crowd pleaser too with the men and ladies;) These would make great neighbor gifts too…for not much cash:) I even did all the hard work for you and made you a printable to print out and attach:) I’m so nice….
