I spent this Christmas with my husband’s family at our house. It was our first-ish time hosting family for the holiday. It was great for him. For me, it was just okay. I ended up really missing my family and wishing I had went to Houston the weekend after Christmas. I didn’t go for a number of reasons but mainly because I was lazy and I didn’t want to make that “extra long” drive.
If you ever feel the urge to go see your parents, friends and/ or family, just go. Do not think too long and hard about it. M had to work, so I’ve spent this entire weekend alone. Minus running a few errands, a gym stop, and some shopping, I was home trying to fill my time with reading, cleaning, video games, and dancing by myself. Needless to say I was capital B- bored. Learn from me, go home.
Short and Sweet.
Oh, the recipe.
Easiest Christmas cookies ever, unless you store buy, but that’s cheating. You don’t even need to bake. Sidenote, I baked 3 kinds of cookies for christmas plus made these. BUT should you choose next year or whenever to go the easy route here’s the recipe:
1 package of Oreos
1/2 package of Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chips
1 Tbs of Crisco or vegetable shortening
First melt the chocolate and the shortening in a microwaveable bowl for about 10-15 secs. Stir. Arrange the Oreos on parchment paper. Dip each one in the melted chocolate and return to parchment paper. Keep doing this until all of them are fully coated. This might get messy. It’s melted chocolate. Duh. Before the chocolate dries be sure to add any edible decorations. Let them cool until all the chocolate is dry. Then enjoy.
It’s super easy. You can do it with any kind of chocolate. And instead of Oreos you can use fruit. I mean if you wanna go the healthier route. Who am I to judge? #whateves #tistheseason
