Busy, Busy, Busy

I'm in the middle of a busy day, and it's only 11:00 in the morning!  I've already taken Pepper to the Vet for her check-up & shots, made a grocery list, and checked coupons.  Now it's off to the store for the last of the  shopping for the boys and then to the grocery store.  After that, it'll be cleaning the house.  I've promised CH that I'll make one more batch of Eggnog Bread with Rum Glaze just for us.  I think I've got the technique down so they come out just about perfect.  I saw a friend last night who said it was really good, so I'm glad it turned out right.  I feel bad that I gave that first batch out.  We ate one mini loaf, and it was still good, it just wasn't as pretty as the others!  I gave out a total of 3 batches (minus the one we ate).  I made one batch with "imitation" rum glaze for those I wasn't sure if they would appreciate the real thing.

Tomorrow the merriment will begin.  I'll probably do the baking tomorrow and the candy making on Saturday.  I turn on the Christmas music and have at it!  On the agenda for tomorrow:
Cake mix Crinkle Cookies (this is a new recipe that I ran across on google+ yesterday)
Mosaic Glazed Sugar Cookies (another recipe I ran across yesterday)
Candy Cane Cookies
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Red Velvet Cookies

And on Saturday:
Peanut Butter Cups
Chocolate Covered Cherries
Texas Millionaires
Peanut Butter fudge
(These were all "Christmas Staples" when I was growing up!)
Slow cooker chocolate Candy (new one...saw it on FoodNetwork with Trisha Yearwood!)
Bourbon Balls
Red Velvet Truffles

Please don't think we'll eat all of it:  I make a plate for my next door neighbor.  She graciously supplies me with pecans...the Texas Millionaires are her favorite!

Hope everybody's preparations are going smoothly!


  1. Both the bread and the candy sound yummy! Guess it's a good thing I'm not your neighbor since I'm supposed to be losing weight and not succeeding too well!

  2. Wow that's a lot of sweets. Did you catch The Chew yesterday? If not go see the Secret Santa exchange online. Carla got the best gift.

  3. Wow, you are going to be one busy lady! Have fun.

  4. Oh my gosh... I dont think I've ever made that much sweet stuff in all my Christmas' combined!!!

  5. and here I sit in my classroom. Tomorrow the kids leave at the half day mark. My boss is going into his office and is not coming to look for us aftr 1. I am so out of here.

  6. Well you have been busy! I have baking still to do. I am going to star this post and come back to check out all your links. Have fun!

  7. I've never heard of Texas Millionaires! Do you have a recipe to share? ;-)

  8. Sounds so yummy! Hope your Christmas was great. I made Trisha Yearwood's peanuts too this year. I loved them.
