i love thanksgiving/christmas/winter holidays.
i love being with my fam, and checking out lights, and belting out tunes about jesus and mistletoe and snowmen. but most of all....
most of all i love the food.
and my kitchen cabinets are all aglow right about now with loads of delicious christmasy treats.
dear candy cane oreos,
don't tell regular oreos...or even the double-stuffed ones....but you are my favorite of all the oreos. first off...you have 2 colors in your cream...so that's pretty awesome. secondly...your cream isn't just minty, it also has little bits o'candy cane in it. and that makes it minty and crunchy at the same time. so keep doing what you do.
your loyal christmastime fan.
p.s. you, me and a batch of white chocolate are gonna have a threesome soon. get ready for the awesomeness.
dear gingerbread graham crackers,
thanks for existing. really. i mean it. i feel like i have known you my whole life, even from way back in elementary school...
yes, i remember taking regular graham crackers, and gluing them to milk cartons for the saddest christmas craft ever. but NOW, now i can make a real live gingerbread house...with graham crackers. cuz let's be honest...i'm not gonna make a REAL one. but i can probably manage a little fake one with some glue frosting.
wanna be a bakery builder.
p.s. you make real good smores too.
BLESS YOU. bless you for making these little cups of deliciousness. bless you for making it possible for me to have a little taste of apple pie at 11pm on a thursday, without having to go all martha stewart, and take a break from my insider trading to make a perfect flaky pie crust. plus, it's fruit and granola....so it's practically some wheatgrass or wheat germ or something. okay, maybe not THAT healthy since it tastes like apple pie...but it's gotta be better than my BFF the oreos.
i. love. pie.
