Welcome to Week Two everyone! To everyone still joining in from NaNoHop, it’s nice to meet you. I usually post about my writings and mental health, but this season I’m taking time to participate in the Christmas Blog Party hosted by Jameson @ Lovely Whatsoevers. Every week has a new series of holiday-themed questions.
I’m still working on certain areas of the blog, so just bare with me and everything will be ready by the first of 2017.
Do you make any special treats for the holidays?
Indeed, I do! Like I referred to in the Week One post, many of my mom’s Christmas traditions revolve around food. The only treats she made around the holidays – and only one time – were sausage balls and Buckeyes. Sausage balls are made with Bisquick, ground sausage, and cheddar cheese. Buckeyes are aptly named because they resemble buckeye nuts. It’s a peanut butter ball dipped in chocolate. I don’t make them because I’m too lazy to buy a proper double boiler to melt the chocolate, but that’s probably best for my waist.
How do you feel about peppermint?
It’s good in small doses, but I really enjoy peppermint bark candy and creamer for coffee.
Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate? If you like hot chocolate, do you prefer marshmallows or no marshmallows?
It all depends but if we’re talking about during Christmas, then hot chocolate! When I’m being healthy I make my own without marshmallows, but preference is definitely with marshmallows.
Do you leave out the traditional cookies and milk for Santa, or a different snack?
Sugar cookies and milk! Some people leave out celery or carrots for the reindeer, but I think they’re pretty well-fed before the trip.
Favorite Christmas dinner dish?
Growing up we’d always have turkey, dressing, and pretty much all the other sides present at an American Thanksgiving. However, my husband and his family make Mexican-style food for Christmas dinner. My husband makes refried beans from scratch and while they are terrible for me, I absolutely love them.
