Is it just me or did the really late Thanksgiving just throw the normal holiday rush into super sonic speed?
Today is December 20th. Christmas is in 5 days. I was out for almost 4 hours last night running errands and am still not done with all of the things I need to do.
What does an ulcer feel like? Does chocolate help one? Cause that’s what I’m doing – eating chocolate as a coping mechanism. At least until I get home. Then I break out the hard stuff – wine ice cream.
If you’re finding yourself in a bit of a holiday tizzy and stretched a bit thin running from party to party feeling guilty for considering a bag of Doritos as your edible contribution – then let me give you a few easy, delicious and festive ideas. If you know me and are having a party, don’t be surprised if I show up with something from the list below!
Candy Cane Crinkle Cookies – makes 2 dozen
A Christmas Tree Veggie Platter – take maybe 20 minutes to assemble. Use your favorite veggies on as borders or to put in hollowed out bell peppers:
Cranberry Brie Tartlets – recipe makes 15, but super easy to double or triple! This has become a family favorite! Only 1 WW point per bite!
Wasabi Shrimp Bites – pretty fancy looking, but super easy and loads of flavor. Only 1 WW point per bite!
So go home, make one (or two or ten) of these recipes, scoop up a bottle of wine and get your Merry on!
Have a great weekend and Merry Christmas my friends!
Good cookies – definitely shake off as much powdered sugar as possible. Some of mine look like its snowing.
