Just a few sweets

I love to bake! Especially this time of year. There are just soooooooooo many wonderful sweets and treats and baked goodies that can be made for Christmas parties and celebrations. It would be so easy to get carried away and bake up all kinds of delicious goodies! I did when we were first married 😀 Yes…David recalls these days with a smile. BUT the older we get…I DON’T NEED IT, HE DOESN’T NEED IT ( he wants it) and all that SUGAR is sooo NOT good!

What’s a girl to do? I decided I would make a few treats, just a couple of our favorites. So…last Friday morning David worked and I put the Christmas tunes on and started singing and dancing and baking in my kitchen. I LOVE to be in my kitchen here. It’s bright and cheery and the view is terrific.

A few things I made:

Peanut Butter Balls

Peppermint Bark

Sugar Cookies

And just one more because it’s easy and David loves them…

Butter pecan tarts

I just wanted a few sweets and Christmas treats for China and some he could take to work…

Besides I know my sweet Mom will still be making her favorites and I am sure there will be some left for us when we get home in Canada!

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.
