Not sure why it always happens this way, but December 1st rolls around and all of a sudden, the baking bug takes affect.  Here's some of what I bought Saturday, just for baking purposes!

On the menu for baking is:

Red Hot Apple Cider (love apple cider with red hots)
Homemade Marshmallows (the marshmallows in the picture are for the fudge!)
Spiced Mocha Fudge (another request from my dh)
Batter Brown Bread (a new recipe from my sister)
M&M Cookies (by request from my baby girl)

Let the baking begin!

November Memories - come and gone....

November was quite an eventful month.  First of all, my dh and I celebrated sixteen years of holy matrimony.  We had been looking for the perfect location to celebrate and found it back in August - a little cabin near Acton, TX.  We had a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend.  The place we chose was a nice little surprise.  The cabin is a charming mix of antique and modern.  If you're looking for a quiet weekend get-away, you need to check out this place. 

The next event (if you want to call it that) was the removal of my gallbladder.  The surgery went well even though my body hated the medicines that were given.  My dh cooked almost the entire Thanksgiving dinner.  Yes, he is a great cook and enjoyed taking on that responsibility. 

November, along with it's memories has come and gone.....
Hello December - new memories to make!
