First of all I got the December issue of Martha Stewart today! I totally squealed when I put it in my hands. Is that a problem? Who else on god’s green earth get’s so excited that they wanna go take a bath, get in cozy pj’s just to “prepare” for the opening of the magazine. ME. I know. Just go along with me and every one will be just fine! Ohh Emm Geee! I am making sticky chicken right now and you should smell this stuff! Totally makes me want to eat the air. Everything in Louisiana is pretty much sticky so in case you have no idea what “STICKY CHICKEN” is… here is a recipe!
Just wanted to share some fun facts from the magazine with you! Ready?
If one of your ornaments is missing a hook, use a length of floral wire to hang it. Wrap one end of the wire around the ornament’s loop and the other end around a tree branch!
SHOP FOR A CAUSE
When you buy gifts via goodshop.com, a portion of what you will spend will go to the nonprofit organization of your choice! HOW AWESOME!
Tangerines (Southeastern United States)
Brussels Sprouts (Western United States)
Kale (Southwestern United States)
Give Receipts: when shopping for presents, ask for gift receipts at the register, and tape them to the packages before wrapping.
Buy Batteries: If you’re celebrating the holidays with young kids, make sure you have batteries on hand for any toys that call for them, plus a small screw driver to remove the toys’ battery covers.
Avoid the rush: remember to mail cards and out of town gifts by the second week of the month. To save time, you can print your own postage at home. Go to usps.com for details.
Make baking a breeze: To save time during the holiday rush, get a head start on baking by freezing slice and bake dough. With logs of premade dough in the freezer, you can have cookies ready to bake at a moment’s notice. When freezing, wrap it in parchment paper, and label with the type of dough and any baking instructions for a quick reference. Experiment with different flavors and add-ins for a variety of cookies that will last you through the season.
I hope you enjoyed some tips for the upcoming months!!!
