Christmas baking, and a return from the dead.

Hello!
Sorry it’s been so long since I blogged. I’ve been a complete zombie up until this week.
I wasn’t accomplishing ANYTHING, and therefore had nothing to talk about! But it’s better now. I don’t feel like a real person all the time, but I’m feeling like a real person more frequently.
It’s ironic really, since I haven’t been able to sleep properly for a few weeks now. I was doing OK without the tummy sleeping, but only because I was able to sleep on my back. Now that both of those options are gone I have to sleep directly on my side, and it is killing my not so awesome back. But needing less sleep is helping with that because I can keep moving more hours out of the day.
I spent all last weekend in the kitchen, and it was awesome!
I made cookies and fudge, and my very favorite thing to make at Christmas time, homemade marshmallows!!!

They are amazing, and I look forward to having the good homemade ones every Christmas now.
My personal favorite thing to do is have them with our usual berries and chocolate fondue. Ah-freaking-mazing.
I made a couple things for the first time this year. The first was white chocolate dipped red licorice. Not only does it look like Christmas, but it’s so stinking sweet you won’t even know what hit you! We had them earlier this year in Sun Valley, and loved them. The ones I made are just as good, and they are way cheaper than the Chocolate shop’s version =)

 

This is round two because the husband ATE all of the first batch. =)

 

Speaking of the husband, I am going to drag him out to play in the snow this week, and we will go find all the good Christmas lights. I here there are some houses in town with light shows synchronized to music…Pretty hard core.
