The tastes of Christmas…our favourites

I’m still waking up VERY early in the morning.

img_3688It’s so quiet and peaceful and no one around except for the two or three deer that are walking down the street. Yes, I live in town but it doesn’t stop these creatures from coming out of the woods and going for a little stroll down the street when everyone should be sleeping.

A good fix for jet leg tiredness during the day is keeping busy. So this week, yesterday and today ( finishing up) I am making some Christmas goodies. Not too many this year but some of our favourites…

Peppermint patties


Peanut Butter Balls


White Chocolate Candy Cane Bark


Gumdrop Nougat



Cranberry/Orange Bars


Lemon Loaf


Whipped Shortbreads

Cracker Candy


There are a few more things I’ll do like our Christmas Eve Yule Log, Cranberry Steamed Pudding and maybe a cheese cake or two , and some brownies. But that’s something for next week.

Yum! Everything looks so delicious and my home smells wonderful…like Christmas!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
