I was planning to write this morning about an odd remedy for a stomach bug. Not the cheeriest Christmas theme, I realize. But it’s a good story.
However, two nights ago, friends gave us a Christmas present that trumps stomach bugs for a Dec. 23 blog post. I love homemade gifts and this one is fantastic! It’s pretty, tasty and perfected suited to the boy and I. Homemade chocolates and alcohol — ah, these friends know us well.
First, they presented us with the bag, which made awesome clinking sounds as they passed it across the table:
Inside, there were bottles of homemade vanilla-cranberry vodka and spiced rum. The boy wanted to bust into the rum right there in the restaurant but I held him back. Note the awesome labels.
Next, we pulled out these brandied cherries. So cute, don’t you think?
And last but not least, perfect candy cane chocolate bark. I know it’s perfect because I did break into it right there in the restaurant. And, I had another piece with my coffee with morning. Because that’s what I do on Dec. 23.
Thank you so much, J&M!
