Tonya here… We’re deep into the holiday season now and it seems like there’s never a quiet moment. So how do you get through the holidays with your sanity in tact, and what are your nuttiest moments? I’ll be sharing a delicious recipe for Crunchy Thai Cashew Rice Salad, as well as my own nuttiest moments… and we have a fantastic giveaway. This post is sponsored, so extra thanks for sharing.
In between the holidays that are to be filled with roasts, baked goods, and casseroles sometimes you need something a little different. So above I’ve given you a peek at the delicious Crunchy Thai Cashew Rice Salad recipe that I’m going to share below.
Nutty Holiday Moments
But first, let’s have a laugh over some of those nutty moments during the holiday season. Here are a few of mine… Can you relate to any of these?
- I was halfway through an epic pre-Thanksgiving break play date with school friends. I was making all the kids hot chocolate, and the dog was dancing under my feet and I accidentally ladled hot chocolate straight over my hand from the pot on the stove. OUCH. That was fun (and yes the burns to my hand are healing nicely).
- Since my oven is so tiny, the Thanksgiving turkey barely fit and I had to use a long hook to turn the roasting pan just enough so that I could grab the handle to pull it out of the oven.
- I was me baking yet another apple pie and accidentally (okay totally on purpose) over-filling it and it bubbled right over the sides and smoke came streaming out of the oven. That will teach me for being greedy for big pies.
- Then there was the paint incident when my daughter decided to make handmade painted pasta necklaces for all of her girlfriends for Christmas and accidentally dropped bright green paint with the lid off and it splattered EVERYWHERE!
I expect another epic nutty moment this coming weekend when we go to the tree farm to chop down a tree and load it up on top of my car to bring home. I’m sure there will be a story or two to be told. [Read More…]
