It may have been a breezy 70 degrees today which made for perfect short sleeve weather in the middle of December but I’m not letting that drown my Christmas spirit. I’m finally getting into the Christmas mood and I won’t let anyone or anything get me down,
Across the road there are little white paper bag lanterns lining the road, sidewalks and river trail. When I was walking the dogs earlier the Christmas carolers where getting set up while a few of them were tuning musical instruments. Tonight they’ll be singing Christmas carols and having a light show on the trail down by the river. I was thinking about going but Thomas’ isn’t feeling well and I think I’ll just stay up in the apartment with him.
I’ve got the fireplace going and we’re catching up on “Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” tonight. Perhaps I’ll stroll over there for just a few minutes tonight when I take the dogs out later.
Speaking of Christmas stuff, I’m thinking about walking over to main street tomorrow with my camera to capture a few of the Christmas decorations that have been arranged on the Victorian houses on Millionaires Row. It’s a bit of a walk from the apartment but not too far. At least I’ll get my steps in tomorrow! haha.
There is just something about those Victorian houses when they have the green pine branch wreaths and red ribbons on the windows and the beautiful candles in each one of the 20 windows. Oh the windows, have you seen a Victorian home with the candles lined up in the windows, they’re just beautiful.
So while I’m out and about tomorrow I’ll try to snap some pretty photos of them and bring them back for you, k? I’m really looking forward to going up to Main Street one night to take Christmas light photos but that’ll have to wait until Thomas can go with me. I’m not quite that brave haha.
But onto today’s recipe! White Chocolate Peppermint Puppy Chow is happening and you just kind of need to make this, like now. 🙂
It’s a little Christmas take on the “Muddy Buddy”/’Puppy Chow” that everyone around here has been making and eating their entire lives. Is it a southern thing? No, it can’t be. I mean they have to have puppy chow like this everywhere, right?
Let me know in the comments. Have you had puppy chow/ muddy buddies? Have you made them?
They’re pretty much like tasty little pieces of sugar, peanut butter and chocolate with a dash of peppermint thrown into every bite!
