TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE....










THANKSGIVING!
...and I just ate a big Chinese dinner. I am now making chicken and dressing and cake balls. I am suppose to be making peas and sweet potatoes....I'll get there.

Back to these cake bqlls...
I read scanned the recipe and thought oh how easy....NOT.

Don't scan a recipe because you miss important info like....freeze the balls BEFORE dipping them in chocolate. Grrr Look at them. So sad.


BUT
They do taste good.
AND
I have a chocolate cake ball mix in the fridge...I'm going to do this one right.
SEE



Kinda looks nasty but I swear if I wasn't full of chinese I'd eat it with a spoon...just like that.

By the way...Speaking of eating,I think I gained 5 lbs yesterday while eating a early meal with Britt's parents...tomorrow I go to my parents! I have challenged myself to see how much weight I can lose between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I start Friday...it ends Christmas Eve.
I need to be held accountable so I'm going to post on here about it....anyone wanna do it with me?

Next weekend is our ladies shopping trip to Branson!! We are having a Christmas kitchen towel exchange. Here's mine...what do ya think? Would you wanna get these?  They haven't been ironed yet so kinda look beyond that. They are made out of flour sacks I bought at the Dollar store.
3 for $3!


 

Now to go finish my dressing! YUM!



HAVE A HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!


Let me know if any of the 4 of you wanna do the challenge....or need to... like me.
