I’ve made three things this past week that were so amazingly delicious, that I just had to share.
First is this potato soup that is ALL OVER Pinterest. It can either be cooked in the crock pot or on the stove. I made ours on the stove, and served it with a giant salad and crusty bread. I had planned to make my own bread to go with this soup, but discovered that I was out of yeast. By some miracle, this was the one day of the year that my husband stopped at the grocery store on the way home, and on a whim decided to bring home french bread. I’ve had this soup for leftovers twice, and it’s just as good reheated as it was fresh from the stove.
Then, I made peanut butter fudge using Hillary’s recipe with the intent of taking it to people, but I didn’t have a very well thought out plan for packaging it. So, I have a 75% full pan of fudge hanging out in my refrigerator. The amount that’s left doesn’t speak to the deliciousness of this fudge, it’s just SO RICH, that even I can only eat little bits at a time.
Finally, I made chocolate chip cookie dough dip, which is yet another Pinterest find. I didn’t have much of this, as I made it to take to a party where I focused more on deciding between gingerbread or key lime mini-cupcakes, but I overheard people saying it was good, so you can take the word of the friends of my friend.
In other news, half of my Christmas cards made it to their destinations, while some of them were returned looking like this:
Stuff like that makes me want to quit Christmas. I very dramatically sank down on the stairs declaring that Christmas cards are such a waste of my time and energy, and this extra expense was just putting me over the edge. My husband kindly explained that even if we have to re-mail ALL of the cards, we’re only talking about roughly $15, and that we would probably survive that. Still, my envelopes are ugly now. If you’re the recipient of an ugly envelope, you have my apologies.
