Things are beginning to get busier as the Christmas season is upon us. This being said, I have discovered that some of my more elaborate Christmas pins take 2 days to finish. This might happen a couple times, but I’m ok with that. I have also discovered that it is getting more difficult for me to make the pin and post about it in the same day, with baby and life. So going forward I am not going to stress about whether I write my blog on the same day as my pin – as long as I get it up soon after.
So here is what I did this week:
Mini Coconut Cookies — these were mostly a big fail. I tried to do modify the recipe even before making it– and it ended in disaster. But a learning experience none the less.
Superhero Christmas Ornaments — this was another 2 day pin. It took almost a full day for the insides of the ornaments to dry — but that gave me time to do other things. I love the final outcome — but I would definitely do it differently next time.
Spinach Artichoke Chicken — on a day when I knew we were going to be busy I threw the ingredients into the slow cooker and walked away. This was a great meal — with lots of leftovers.
Sun-dried Tomato Chicken — by far my best recipe so far. This tasted amazing! I compared it to the asiago chicken bowties at Jack Astors — only BETTER! And it wasn’t that hard — just had to buy a few things I don’t normally stock in the house.
Looking to make a few more Christmas items next week. It is getting pretty busy around here — so keep checking back!
