Something Sweet

I hope everyone is staying sane this holiday season...we are trying our best to do so! December, what a crazy month.

I read an interesting article yesterday about Christians battling consumerism at Christmas time. It's funny to think how simple the first Christmas was...nothing a manger...Christ came into the world in such humble circumstances.

How opposite of that the celebration of His birth has become. It's pretty ironic, don't you think? And I am just as guilty as anyone.

Just something to think about.

On to something sweet...I made Cinnamon Honey Butter.


I just might have a new tradition.

Honey Butter 005

Make some honey butter, toast some English muffins...and you have breakfast. And lunch. And maybe a snack, too. Can you tell what I've been eating lately? It's also good on sweet potatoes, toast, waffles, carrots, muffins, you name it. Another easy recipe.

And if you feel like giving some away (you might not, it's just that good), you can try to make it pretty.

Cinnamon Honey Butter Recipe:
2 sticks of butter (room temperature)
1 c honey
1 c powdered sugar
2 t cinnamon

Whip butter, and remaining ingredients, and beat again. Store in refrigerator.

And what does the baby do while I slave away in the kitchen? She tries to help...

...and maybe even crawling in them. Speaking of babies, Callie said the word hi. She loves to say hi and wave at everyone. And she "talks" on her toy cell phone, saying hi and just babbling.

She also started giving kisses to her baby. Could she be any more sweet?

Just discovered your site. One thing I've noticed is that the prices on PRC products usually aren't that much less than on USA made ones and the quality isn't there.
I just found a USA made Stanley Takealong-$3 in a thrift shop and my 1976 vintage Aladdin thermos is still going strong.
