I know I'm a little early, but it's officially Christmas time at my house. Halloween is gone and I couldn't be happier because it means my favorite day is coming up! Since I've been away from home for so many years, there are very few times when I get to go back and see my family. Christmas is one of those times. Apart from all the festive decor and gifts, it really is just a great holiday to spend with the people that I don't get to see as often anymore. It's always a happy time for me and I can't wait to go home. Til then, I'm going to enjoy my little decorations that I put together last night. It's a great way to remind me to hang in there; the end of the semester and greatest time of year, are right around the corner :)
Also, I put together the simplest dessert ever to make: Strawberry Pound Cake!
All you need is one of those store bought mini round pound cakes (they can usually be found in the bakery section of the grocery store). Mix and mash up some strawberries in a bowl with sugar to drizzle over it, then top with whipped cream- I prefer Reddi Whip! TADA ! Masterpiece and so delicious!
