Rice Bubble Christmas Slice

2014-12-12_4852copy

Hi there!

I have been a bit quiet around this place lately. Christmas is a busy time of year at our house, and there isn’t much time for anything else. I did get a chance yesterday to head into the kitchen though and make a lovely Rice Bubble Christmas Slice.

If you have noticed in the shops, they are selling Christmas m&m’s in a bucket. An abundance of red and green m&m’s. I grabbed two buckets the other day and after nearly eating all of one bucket (with the help of my kids of course) I decided I should use them for some baking as well.

So I came up with a cheerful Christmassy Rice Bubble Christmas Slice.

This slice is easy to make and a great treat to have sitting in the fridge. My kids love it and are a taking a square in their lunchbox to school each day. Hubby loves it too so its happy tummies all around. Now the only problem for me with storing the slice in the fridge is that every time I go to the fridge it’s there looking at me and I just want to keep eating it.

Is there anything sitting in your fridge that you can’t stop eating?

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and happy baking!

Christmas, Holidays

Christmas Already?

Yes, it’s Christmas already! I love Christmas; I do. But sometimes I’m not so sure when we start seeing the Christmas decorations galore in October. Why do they need to be in the shops in the month of October?? I remember when I was little and not seeing anything Christmasy until the first week of December. That’s right December!! The year goes fast enough. I don’t want Christmas in October. I want Christmas in December. It belongs in December.

I have found that keeping myself from enjoying the Christmas goodies until December; there is nothing good left to buy. I have tried to hold back and wait, but it’s no good. I needed to buy tinsel a couple of years ago to decorate the outside table. It was two weeks into December. I headed off to the shops and started searching. Well, there was nothing left. I love the big thick tinsel. I wanted red and green, the traditional colours. Did I find any? No. I had to use the thin falling apart tinsel that I had at home in the just in case decorations box.

So after that bad Christmas decoration experience, I have had to succumb to buying my decorations early. If you want the good stuff, you need to get in quick. Sometimes you get lucky, and the shops start their sales on the Christmas goodies in November and you can get some good bargains. But at times I don’t wait for the sales and buy early. If I see something good and I can afford it, I just buy it.

We received the Kmart catalogue the other day, and it was full of Christmas goodies. I have put together a little board to show you eight pretty Christmas things. I might just have to go and check it out. Yes, I am going to buy my decorations early!!
