Just a short post today to clue you all in on a couple of hacks that don't work. Not for me, anyway.
1. Dollar Tree batteries are a no go. I put them in the LED candles I bought and they lasted three days, at about four hours a day. Lots of ladies on yoo toob say they're good. No they're not!
2. I also tried the hack women are raving about - turning granulated sugar into confectioner sugar. I have a NINJA for gosh sakes. I let that baby run for a good four minutes. I ended up with smaller granules, but no fine confectioner sugar. I wanted to try it before I put it on the blog. So glad I did. If you have luck with this, let us know. Maybe I did something wrong.
Christmas Eve Dinner
Ham and cheese on rolls
Jello for the kiddos
Brie with raspberry sauce
Cheese and crackers
Cheese ball (olive)
Lettuce and tomato platter (for sandwiches or salad)
Dessert (to be determined)
Dinner will be at my home and lunch will be at S.'s home. We usually eat light on Christmas Eve because there's so many last minute things the moms have to wrap up.
I wish all of my readers that celebrate Christmas the most blessed of day with those you love. Oh, and a full tummy! Merry Christmas.
