Christmas in July: Less than 5 Months to Order Your “Baby Cheeses.”

Anyone else out there watch Modern Family?  We love the episode where Gloria orders a crate of baby Jesus statues instead of a crate of baby cheeses.”  Here is a Wind Back Wednesday  to when our Christmas tree had too much of something, something  and took a tumble!  Happy Hump Day!

Christmas Mice in the Kitchen!

009

Last year I posted my attempt at making a cheaper version of Garnet Hill’s Chocolate Mice. That post has been deleted. One of my first blogging friends,  Mary over at  Life in a Small Town sent me a link for a better different recipe for Chocolate Mice.  I had the chance to redeem myself!
