Oh My!

by Meghann on December 21, 2011

Sometimes no explanation is needed.


Just photos of a snack-ful lunch will do.


Cheese, olives, walnuts, apple slices, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, hummus, and pita wedges – oh my!


That is all. πŸ™‚

There is an apricot brandy cake (like a pound cake) in my oven right now for Christmas Eve. It is honestly, the tastiest cake I’ve ever had but with 2 sticks of butter, 3 cups of sugar and brandy galore, I’m not sure how it couldn’t be πŸ˜‰

That sounds good! And you should see my shopping list for tomorrow night – I’m going to need 8 sticks of butter for everything i want to make. At least I know it’s all going to be good!

You are right. Sometime photos will just do. Cheese and apples and triscuits is a normal yummy snack of mine. πŸ˜‰

That’s my kind of lunch! I love lots of different tastes, and olives are always a good idea.

I’m baking my chewy chocolate chip fig cookies, and some homemade peppermint patties. Sugar overload!

My all time favorite cookie recipe is chocolate peppermint patty cookies- just two homemade chocolate cookies with peppermint frosting in the middle, sandwich them together and roll in crushed candy canes. SO good!

this comment is off topic, but I started watching Felicity after seeing you were loving it. I was in need of a new netflix show to waste hours watching. Anyway I finished it pretty quick… loved it!!!! Any other addicting-like shows that you have found since?

21 Meghann December 22, 2011 at 10:00 am

Right now I’m watching One Tree Hill ( a little embarrassed on that one, but it’s just as addicting in that teenage soap opera sort of way πŸ˜‰ )

Also, some NetFlix Favorites –> Brothers & Sisters, How I Met Your Mother, Gilmore Girls, Dawson’s Creek, My So-Called Life, Greek, Arrested Development, and I’m sure I’m leaving out a million more. πŸ™‚

22 tara December 22, 2011 at 10:04 am

Thanks!! Oh I understand the One Tree Hill love. I watched that a few years ago and I still watch reruns on tv when I see them. You might like Friday Night Lights, it’s about a high school football team in Texas. It reminded me a lot of OTH but different sport. Very addicting!! There’s one guy in the show you’ll be drooling over by the end of the series . It’s on Neflix instant play. Enjoy! πŸ˜‰

23 Meghann December 22, 2011 at 10:11 am

Yes! I’ve been meaning to watch that show! It’s on my list. I have another one to send your way – Veronica Mars! Watch it. Now. SOOOOO addicting, you won’t want to stop!

24 tara December 22, 2011 at 10:15 am

Great thanks I’ll add it to my list too! Watch out for Tim Riggins, he gets better each season.. and by better I mean hotter πŸ™‚

Merry Christmas!!

I baked this year. I made up a recipe too… My husband wanted samoas (aka caramel delights) I didn’t want to spend $5.50 on a box!
So here’s what I did (I found a few recipes online but way beyond my cooking level)

1 bag of Betty Crocker oatmeal cookies (next time I’ll use sugar)
1 bag of coconut
1/3 bag of chocolate chips
1 jar caramel sauce
1 tablespoon water
1 egg

Toast half the coconut at 350 stirring often until tan. Mix everything together an cook on parchment paper at 350 for 8-12 minutes or until slightly browned then cool on a rack.
