Not really my favorite, but hubby loves him and he has been feeling poorly this week so last night at the store I tried finding the holiday rice krispie boxes but they didn't have any. Hmm... and the recipe wasn't on the box anymore. Another hmm... but thank goodness for the package of mini marshmallows, they still had the recipe on the bag and I added Christmas sprinkles to make it festive. Hubby was overjoyed and it was quite funny because as I was spreading it in the pan, he said, "Is that it? All you did was heat the marshmallows in the microwave?" I'm like, "Ya.... don't you remember the commercial on tv where the wife would splash flour on her face and pretend she had been slaving away in the kitchen making them?" He replied with, "Well I knew they were easy but I didn't think they were that easy." - LOL!!! Husbands, aren't they the cutest?
It is. I swear! I always wanted a white christmas tree that looked vintage but hubby hated the price of them. We had a fake green one and some years we would buy a real one. We decorated with family ornaments, Mary Engelbreit Ornaments and Christopher Radko. Oh and I loved to put on big red bowls all over it. A hobnob of favorite things.
Well, one year after Christmas, sitting all alone in the corner of the Walmart seasonal section was a white tree marked down for $24.99. :-O How could hubby say no to that price?!?!?!?! And it was 6'. WOOHOO!!! (now you see them everywhere for cheap)
Sooooo it's been my tree every year, except for the years we still get a real tree. Like last year was a pink flocked real tree. Now I decorate with pinks & aquas.
I have 3 little boy chihuahua's here so I put the tree on a table so I don't have to worry. If you know what I mean. They aren't called the Little Pissers for nothing!
Someone posted this on Facebook, I can't remember who... but I knew it looked like a new appetizer I wanted to try. And YUM!!!!! I doubled the recipe so I had extra and gave some away so others could included in their dinners. Ted's sister LOVED it. The original recipe showed you could have it as an appetizer over cream cheese OR with pork. Well, we don't eat pork. :-/ I am saving it and making it again and again and again. My little Kauffman whom loves the Harry & David jarred stuff that you mix w/ cream cheese said, this is better than that. I was like, NO WAY. He said, yes. We ate the whole thing. It was gone! For Amber, I put it over tofutti cream cheese and got gluten free crackers. She loved it too. And it's hard to please that girl. mmHmm Anyway . . . without further ado the recipe:
