Fabulous Favorite Friday


Friday Give Away!!
Happy Friday everyone! I know you are checking out the Chex Mix Turtle picture and saying, "Didn't she blog about that last Friday?" Well, yes I did. It was one of my Fabulous Favorite Friday picks. And, I'm happy to let y'all know that I was contacted by the folks who represent this wonderful product and offered a free box. Well, this tired and hungry momma was tickled. In the spirit of the season of giving and since I love my blog readers, I asked if it was possible to hook up my posse (no I didn't actually put that in the email but what if I had - LOL) to get a free box to give away on my blog. The kind folks said they'd love to spread some holiday cheer and so I'm happy to let y'all know that today I have a free box of Chex Mix Turtle bars to give away.

So, in order to be eligible to win you just have to leave me a comment on this blog post letting me know your favorite cookie recipe (feel free to include a recipe). I'm going to a cookie exchange Monday night, so I really have cookies on the brain. Be sure to include your email address so I can get in touch with you. I will take comments until midnight on Monday, December 15th and I will announce the winner on Tuesday. I will use the random number generator to pick the winner.

I'm so excited that I have this wonderful give away. BTW, I was thinking that these little snacks would make great stocking stuffers. You know that bottom of the stocking is always so hard to fill. Also, if you have to be in the car anytime over the next few weeks, maybe traveling to grandma's house, these are a good snack to keep you from biting off your arm in the car.

Fabulous Favorite Friday Pick
Well, today's Fabulous Favorite Friday pick I have to share with you is another holiday beverage. I was in the store this week and saw that 7Up has this Pomegranate soda for sale. It was on sale for 89 cents, so I figured I'd give it a try.

It has a very interesting flavor. Definitely a fruit flavor, but not a real sweet taste. I have to say I didn't love this one like I did the Sierra Mist soda I recommended a few posts ago, but I didn't hate it either. I think this could be a great soda to use in a punch or maybe some kind of mixed alcohol drink. My mother in law was here on Sunday and tried it and she said she thought it was different. She didn't hate it, but didn't love it either. So, I'd say give it a try if you are looking for something different.

Holiday Thoughts
Dh was going out the door today and asked if I had a bowl he could use for potato salad because they are having a holiday luncheon at work. I stopped for a minute and was a tad sad because I remembered how much I enjoyed going to the holiday luncheon when I worked. Oh how my life has changed in the last two years since I quit work. But, looking at my two wonderful boys I know being with them is worth it. I did chuckle to myself because a holiday luncheon here these days consists of having the Ritz snowflake crackers with peanut butter on them. LOL So, I guess we will pull those out today and have our own holiday luncheon.

Be sure to leave a comment so you can try to win the Chex Mix Bars. And next week I hope to have some posts with holiday lights displays. Oh, and there may be another give away next week.

So I totally locve this recipe from my family for Cream Wafers .. they are really hard to actually get right without breaking, and they flake apart at the slightest touch, but they are WONDERFUL!:)

I can't believe I'm the first one to leave a comment. I didn't see this over the weekend. I must have been half asleep all weekend then.

Love your post about food - funny and cute.

Hope you have fun at your cookie exchange and that you get lots of yummy goodies.

Our Christmas favorite is Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.

Mix together 1cup melted butter, 1cup peanut butter, 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs, and a box of powdered sugar. Press into a 9x13 pan. Melt a package of chocolate chips over simmering water and spread on top. Chill until set. Cut into small squares.
