Christmas Eve Mayhem!

It's been a crazy week.  Last Friday things were looking good.  We were invited to a party that night, I was getting together with my best friends Saturday afternoon, and we had another party to attend on Sunday.  Well Friday afternoon it started snowing and kept snowing for three days.  Two feet of snow.  We were snowed in all weekend!  No parties! 

Cocoa didn't know what to think of it at first.  He was a bit bewildered.  He grew to accept the snow and almost like it!

Even enough to go for a walk with me!

While snowed in I watched Food, Inc.  I never wanted to eat again!  LOL!

I quickly recovered upon making cranberry bliss bars!  I followed the linked recipe except I used Pamela's Gluten Free baking mix (which is WONDERFUL) and for the icing I only used 1 cup of powdered sugar. Also I skipped the white chocolate drizzle.  Seemed unnecessary.  These are so delicious.  Make them and you will be glad you did!

Well I must go.  We have a get together at my father in laws house in a few minutes.


  1. I must try those cranberry bliss bars! I used to love these at Starbies...

    Hope you had a great Christmas!

  2. I've borrowed food inc and am planning to watch it friday while DH is out of town.
    I hate movies like this but I like to watch them to know what "the other side" is saying since I don't agree with any of these anti-ag movies/books.
