we had such a fabulous (early) thanksgiving yesterday. both of our families came over, and it was a great day. desdi got to play with chris’s new pug baby, which was adorable. she loves puppies!! i’m trying to get all of the posts together to give you some great recipes to try with your families. my mom and i worked all day friday and saturday for the blog, and i have over 18 posts to get out! first on the list, twice baked sweet potatoes with streusel topping. holy…yum…
i’m married to an addict. a Taco Bell addict. I kid you not that when we go to taco bell…he can spend $20. and that’s saying something!!! his mom tells stories of when she would check his credit card statements in college and there would be hundreds of dollars spent on taco bell…and nothing else. literally he pretty much had a taco bell credit card.
These homemade chicken Mexican pizzas are the cure to his addiction. only 500 calories and so filling! and taste better than the real thing :)
one thing i always think of when i think of the holidays are homemade treats. usually i think of sweets, cookies and fudge and all of that good stuff, but i also think of the salty variety! our favorite snack for the holidays is my mom’s FAMOUS chex party mix. omg. you have to try it. i have visions of my dad eating this by the bag-full while watching chiefs football :)
but theres a new snack in town. just in time for the holidays. sriracha and maple oyster crackers.
