Baby it’s cold outside, but I shall give you a warm home. Hmmmm bundtinis.
Flu shot week. If you follow the herd at the UMN and get one (free to staff and students) you also get a fun cow sticker and Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop. Luckily they still had purple left, as its the best one! How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop answer? Apparently 250+ according to the internet.
A Chex Mix kind of day.
My Mom’s annual 4th of July Party!
Easter. I arrived a few minutes late so there was no waiting for food, as the feeding frenzy was over. Great food, but sadly no dessert. Then it was off to work, as the library was open normal hours on this bunny holiday.
Christmas Eve 2016 has come and gone. It happens too fast, but at least its filled with lots of good food, good people, and good gifts.
How did you spend your Festivus? Did you practice the “Airing of Grievances” or the “Feats of Strength”? Have any “Festivus miracles”? Festivus is for the rest of us.
I am an eater, not a cooker or baker. Really, I hate cooking and baking. I hate reading recipes and find the whole process less fun then watching paint dry. But for Christmas this year I decided to cook beverages (Grandma’s brandy slush) and appetizers for Christmas Eve. Why did I decide to cook? I have no idea. We will see what happens…
Today was the Annual Minnesota 99s Business Meeting and Holiday Party held at the Key Air (they have a wonderful facility) at Anoka County Airport (KANE). Besides the business meeting we had some videos on bad and not too bad landings, a talk by the Girl Scouts who are doing a few projects on the Minnesota 99s, we had a ton of yummy food to eat, and a lot of fun.
Let the feeding begin! Happy Thanksgiving!
The making of the Chex Mix. Original recipe from the early 1980s!
