Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share


OK…I’m getting REAL CHEAP these days!  I was in the checkout line at Walmart and the peppermint patties were calling my name.  I picked up the bag and checked out the price.  I would’ve gotten four…maybe five MINIATURE peppermint patties for $1.  I thought to myself – What a RIP-off!…and then I remembered I’d seen a recipe for homemade peppermint patties online….somewhere…oh yeah…HERE!  So, I assume you can tell what I did.  I made a HUGE batch of peppermint patties for about $1-2 dollars!  They taste exactly like store-bought patties…but mine weren’t so perfect-looking.  But I think if I practice, their looks could improve. :o)

And…another thing I’ve gotta share…which I think is a BRILLIANT tip:  Take a power strip on vacations! GENIUS!  You know, hotel power outlets are few and far between, right?!?  So, with the whole family’s phones, and iPads/Pods etc. needing charging every night, that is one tip I hope to implement on our next trip! I discovered that tip HERE.

I hope you all have a fabulous day!  Do or learn something NEW!

a NEW muddy buddie variety


Tonight I tried a NEW flavor of Muddy Buddies…Peppermint!  Tis the season, right?!?  I have a list of different varieties I want to eventually try.  What a versatile snack!  And if I get ambitious, I’ll have to try and create my own specialty….I’ll get back with you on that :o)

I tried the Peppermint from this recipe at The Recipe Critic.  The Cookies and Cream Muddy Buddies look yummy at Chef In Training.   And Just a Pinch has a lemon muddy buddie recipe I plan to try.

Try something NEW today!….if only simply a NEW flavor!
