And taking a break from this -
I do love to wrap gifts!
Anyway, as I was saying, I realized that some of my favorite decorations this year are very inexpensive.
These came from Dollar Tree -
They came in packs of two for $1!
I hung 4 on the front window in the living room and one on the old vanity that Christy convinced me to keep. Someday we might paint it. Someday :)
I also like these wreaths -
If they only last a year, who cares?
I think I've shown you this before -
Christmas is coming! It's almost here! And I love it!!
Here's the recipe for Onion Pretzels...
1 bag Wege pretzels
I packet Lipton onion soup
1 stick plus 3T butter, melted
Place pretzels on a jelly roll pan. Sprinkle onion soup over pretzels. Pour melted butter over all. Gently stir to be sure the butter is distributed evenly. Bake at 250 degrees for 30 min. Stir at least twice during baking. Cool and enjoy!!
I always leave the pretzels cool on the pan do they can soak up any butter that may remain. Store in a covered dish or plastic bag. Warning, once you start eating these, it's hard to stop!
I made 4 batches so far today. 1 more to go. Some will be eaten at our Christmas but lots are being given away.
