October 1st. The holidays are coming. Sure, I may have had my Halloween decorations up since the beginning of September, but that’s not holiday prep.
That’s just fun.
So what do I mean by holiday prep?
I mean clearing out space to make room for all those supplies your going to buy.
From Scotch tape and wrapping paper to napkins and tablecloths.
And in my case, it’s baking. I love to bake and with the temperatures actually out of the triple digits for the first time in months I’m ready to heat up my oven for baking breads, cookies, brownies, cakes etc.
This means I have to clean out the two freezers (one an upright freezer the other attached to my fridge). I’ve already found 2 bags of buried chocolate chips with about a 1/4 of chips in each. And I just bought a new 5lb bags of chips. I also have some toffee chips and caramel chips.
Then I must move on to my pantry. Do you have any idea what year-old marshmallows look like? I do. It’s not pretty. It’s kind of scary actually. I thought the swollen bag might explode like a balloon popping and mutant marshmallows taking over the dark places in my kitchen.
What do you do to prep for the holiday season?
Until next time.
