Good Morning! This is what I woke up to this morning:
and on that note.. Merry Christmas Eve! Remember yesterday when I was all I don’t feel the Christmas cheer what the heck is wrong with me?! Yea.. lame right?
Welp, not anymore! Call it the snow, call it all of the christmas cookies that I plan on
bakingeating this morning or the gifts that I am just about to start wrapping. Christmas is here people and I am ready for it!
So let me give you a low down of how this day is going to go. How many miles I plan on running in the snow! Still not good at that… And of course what is on the baking menu for the day.
First and foremost let’s get down to the dirty details on this whole running thang I love so much. Since I’ve signed up for the ole Home for the Holidays Virtual 10k I’ve got 6 miles to knock out along with mi madre who hopefully will go halvies with me and knock out 3 of those miles before I fly solo for the last 3. I’ve bribed her with penguin toe socks to wear whilst running. How can you say no to penguin toe socks?!
My thoughts exactly.
Now, as far as the menu goes I have only made 1 batch.. yes that’s right only 1 batch of Christmas cookies so far! Who am I?! I know this shouldn’t be real but it is the sad truth. Fortunately, this can be fixed quite easily and I plan on taking the necessary steps to fix this
minor mega situation.
The rest of today will be filled with:
Classic peppermint bark which can then be turned right around into peppermint bark cookies Double win
I have not been able to get these guys out of my head.
The best hot chocolate recipe I have ever laid my eyes on.
I also have a mega hard time saying no to anyone who puts banana bread in front of me..
Oh and how can you not make these cookies? Holy Yum.
I do have to remember that I have only 4 other mouths to feed this Christmas.. I might need to pace myself with these cookie recipes. But honesty who says you can only make Christmas cookies on Christmas anyways?
Get ready family you are about to have very full and happy bellies
What are you baking today?!
Every cookie imaginable!
Do you plan on running today? If so how far?
Any tips on running in the snow??
I have none! But I will take as many tips as you all are willing to dish out! Let’s hear em!
