Does anyone out there have great holiday time management tips they can share with me??
Last year, I said I would cut down on some things– and I did– but still, I ran out of time.
How does that happen??
Ok, so I did add a few new desserts this year:
These were Gingerbread cupcakes with mini gingerbread men cookies:
Chocolate chip cookies with sprinkles:
Snowball Cookies with mini chocolate chips:
Brown Sugar and Spice Cookies with cardamom glaze:
Maple Star cookies:
White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies:
And Brownie Bites with chocolate drizzle:
And that was it for the new ones– but I didn’t remove any old ones from my list.
Which brought it to 26 different types of desserts, cookies, and chocolates.
But I did cut down on the time for hot cocoa– I made cute little bags instead of full kits:
And I was done with all my goodies by Thanksgiving!!
So why was it that I still had no time and was stressing out during the last 2 weeks before Christmas?
I hadn’t even started shopping for presents or finished decorating!
One of my sons said it was because it takes so long to prep cookie plates for people:
That’s true, I made about 50 different plates, and it takes a while to take 21 kinds of cookies out from all the individual containers.
And I have to make a few plates at a time on different days because there’s no time to deliver them all at once.
What I can’t figure out is how to do it quicker!
Could that be the issue?
Or is it because I do a ridiculous amount of stuff?
I’ll figure it out someday!!
Maybe next year… as I always say. 🙂
For now, here is some Chex Mix my family made together:
And that’s it for this year.
Hope you enjoyed your holidays!!
