Pinterest & Christmas!

In October, I did something similar for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend and I figured since my weekends have been packed, I might as well try to use this to motivate myself to do what I’ve been meaning to do instead of sitting around doing nothing, which I shouldn’t because I need to turbo study and pass my unexpected Term 2 for my TESL certificate.  Either way, thats moving along alright as long as I stay on track.

Last time I did this, I managed to do about 60% of it or something so I’m aiming for more this time around since I do have a week off (if all my work is done) around the holidays.  Can you believe that Christmas is in 5 days! *gasp* Well, I’m happy because that would mean that my month long antibiotics is done! YAY! And well, its Christmas but OMG, I have a million things to bake (cook, watch, do) this weekend!

LETS BEGIN!

Of course, I won’t be able to make ALL OF THAT! But my ultimate goal is to make a Christmas Log.  Lets hope I can at least do a fraction of this.  But, no, no I’m not ONLY eating sweets for Christmas even if thats what I want.  I also volunteered to cook Christmas and New Year’s dinner so yeah, why did I do that? I’ll work on keeping a smile on my face while I cook, I promise 🙂

Whats better than food to build up the Christmas spirit? No guarantees on doing any of these last few dishes for Christmas or New Year’s dinner but the sweets are my domain and I get full control over that so who knows, maybe I’ll get that done! Do you know a good Christmas log recipe? Maybe you can direct me to one.  I have one in my Betty Crocker Christmas cookbook but I’m open for other options as well 🙂

What Christmas desserts and dishes do you usually  make or love to eat for the holidays?

Help me out and inspire me! 🙂 Lets see how many of these I can do! A crazy weekend ahead of us, right?

We’re on mega Christmas themed stuff now: music, baking, cooking, music…drop by again, k? I promise I’ll try to make it lots of awesome fun! 🙂

HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE! TGIF! 🙂

  1. Mmmm, it all looks so good! So far I’ve made peanut butter fudge and peppermint bark. Need to make more bark that involves chocolate, white chocolate, peanut butter and oreos and peanut butter balls that taste just like Reese’s. 🙂

        Good for holiday spirit increasing! 🙂 Cookies are awesome but I bake cookies all the time so I try to go more candy oriented come Christmas.

      • Omg, I wish I knew where the picture was but one year, long ago, my bestie Brad and I decided we were going to make a Martha Stewart recipe – it was a cake that looked like a monkey. Ours came out looking like a zombie monkey, with the face melting off. *giggles* I have a picture somewhere of Brad standing next to it looking terribly depressed. 😉
