Fully loaded....



 When I sleep until 10:30 a.m.
I wake up pretty hungry.

I've don't sleep that late very often 
but one of my new meds makes me really sleepy.
This particular night, I had 10 hours of sleep.
WOW


 ...PLUS I had worked pretty hard for the last few days,
bringing Christmas tubs from the storage room
and decorating enuf that my house looks festive for
CHRISTMAS EVE.



 I LUV these little fruit cups...
the oranges are my favorite.


Have you noticed how much better your hot drink tastes when it's served in a
CHRISTMAS MUG..??
meee, too.


I wasn't sure how the cranberries would taste in a pancake..
O boy...I was wishing I had doubled that handful....
those pancakes took on a whole new taste high. 
SOOO...if YOU like cranberries...add a bunch !! 



I am about ready to 
build my
HOT COCOA
and 
HOT COFFEE 
bar... 
maybe tomorrow.

SHA ZAM

 I have learned so many things blogging and from FaceBook...
...like, I had no idea you could make COOKIES
with a boxed CAKE MIX.
Sha zam.... who knew ??


 This popped up on my FB page...

just add 2 eggs and 1/3 cup of oil...

mix together and drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet...

350 degrees for about 8 or 9 minutes

and.....


The only cake mix I had was an ANGEL FOOD
and I had 5 boxes of BROWNIE mix....
sooo...
I used one box of the brownie mix
plus extra Vanilla
and plenty of chopped pecans. 

Not that it was all that much faster than mixing the brownies as the directions say...
I was hungry for something sweet and cookies baked faster than
a whole pan of brownies...
besides I just wanted to give it a try.


 They were delicious....
and REALLY good with a Christmas mug full of coffee.
One of my favorite hot drinks is MAXWELL HOUSE coffee.

My very favorite is the ORANGE flavored but I also love CAFE FRANCAIS.


Paired together, I had a special 3:00 in the
 afternoon delight.




 OOO...
and my year old POINSETTIA
is really out-doing herself...
just look at all these beautiful RED LEAVES.....
and her timing is PERFECT...just in time for Christmas.
XOXOXO
