I don‘t want to spoil anything, but I was not disappointed. I am so glad Diana did not pull a George RR Martin. Read for 4 readathons, counted a few word find words. 356 pts #teamgamesleighers #wintergames @StayCurious #wintercozy #wrapitupreadathon @keys_on_fire #averymerryreadathon @TheSpineView

Today‘s tea is Apple Cider. It is the best smelling and best tasting tea yet. I wouldn‘t add anything to it. Teas with apple in them turn bitter when sweeteners are added. I would definitely order this to keep in stock at all times. @StayCurious @Clwojick #wintergames #teamgamesleighers

Arsenic and Adobo | Mia P. Manansala
post image

After reading the tagged book I had to try adobo (beef) for #foodandlit. Also tried their chicken dish with Pancit (rice noodles) and lumpia (spring rolls). The next book in the series has Halo Halo in the title so I had to try it. Halo Halo is the desert cups with ube ice cream, snow cone, fresh fruit and syrup on the bottom. Everything was so delicious that everyone had seconds of everything. My youngest said we have to go there again!

Catsandbooks Ooo I'm so jealous! That all looks delicious!! And that book is on my TBR! 19h
mdm139 The halo halo had so many yummy treasures on the bottom. There was fresh fruit, but also gummy candy and beans. 18h

My long time followers know I get a tea advent calendar every year from DavidsTea and post tea reviews. Today‘s tea is Merry Mistletoe. A white tea with no caffeine. It is not a sweet tea but be careful adding sweeteners to it as it has apple. Not bad tea, but does leave a little bitterness in your mouth. Not going to be a favorite. @Clwojick @StayCurious #teamgamesleighers #wintergames 21 pts

My BOTM picks this month. I almost skipped again since I had the holiday book already. However I heard great things about What Storm What Thunder. Taste Makers looked good and it is get a free Book of the Year Finalist. I only picked People We Meet on Vacation cause I already have all the others. I did not like the author‘s first book, maybe the second book is better.

Hygge continues. Today‘s candle is called Jamie and smells of musk, wood smoke, and pine. The candles can be found at www.bookscentscandles.com. The tea is called Castle Morr. It is an organic Tanzanian black tea with organic Assam black tea. Tastes like a strong breakfast tea so you can add what ever you want to it. I am only 50 pages in and enjoying the book. Diana does not disappoint.

My hubby is often on call during the holidays so over the years me and the boys have developed our own traditions when we can‘t celebrate the holidays on the actual holidays. For thanksgiving that tradition is eating Charlie Brown‘s Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving if we do the big turkey dinner on a different day. Don‘t worry this isn‘t all we eat all day, I did make nutritious meals as well.

mandarchy When I was growing up my mom restricted the amount of "starches" we could have. The Charlie Brown menu horrified me - even as a kid I couldn't imagine having that many carbs, even though we didn't call it that then. So funny. I think that's a great tradition and it will provide wonderful memories for your kids. 1w

Time to get cozy! My holiday obligations are done since we are turkey today. The house is clean. So for the next few day I will be doing nothing but reading this chunkster. I got the mug and tea from an Outlander convention a few years ago. The tea is called Dinna Fash and is a rooibos chamomile tea. It had some sugar and the honey and it is delicious. The candle is called Among the Hives and smells of honey, nectar, and wildflowers.

EvieBee Wowza. Feeling the hygge vibes all the way over here. Enjoy! 1w

Read this book for #foodandlit and so glad I did. One of my favorite books I read this year. Definitely in the top two so far. The prose is magical and beautiful and full of quotable life lessons. Wonderful world building and characters. I did not want the book to end. Already ordered the author‘s newest book. @Texreader @Catsandbooks @Butterfinger

Here is my massive and unrealistic December tbr for #wintergames #teamgamesleighers @StayCurious At the start of 2021 I had a goal to keep track of the books I buy in the year and did not get around to reading. I wanted to keep the total less than 50. I am at 42 right now so I did well. But I know I will probably buy a few more as I see all the cute holiday reads. So my goal is to read some of these. Stack on right is my holiday stack.

wordslinger42 I also made an unrealistic list 😂 I think my excitement about participating in Winter Games for the first time got the best of me! 2w
aperfectmjk Hahaha! I don't even want to see the size of my purchased "unread" stack from this year. It would probably fall over and injury me. One of my main goals for 2022 is to focus more on reading my owned books, rather than being sucked in by all the new releases and putting them on hold with Libby. I learned my lesson this year. A lot of disappointment with new releases. ? 1w

Another perk of homeschooling. The kids are riding their bikes with dad as part of Gym and science since we are learning about muscles and how to keep them healthy. I get to read my #foodandlit book and snack on my homemade Christmas trail mix. The book is beautifully written.

I married a man of Mexican descent so we eat Mexican at least 4 days a week. Sometimes I go all out make a taco bar or an old family recipe of his or he makes something from scratch. We also have a few favorite Mom and pop Mexican restaurants we frequent for authentic Mexican. Plus my kids love Del Taco. But today I am being lazy and just heated up these mini tacos that my kids requested and some Spanish rice. #foodandlit @Texreader @Butterfinger

EvieBee Your rice looks so good! I love that Mexican red sticky rice. And fideo, too. I‘m going to try my hand at pozole this week. Mom taught me years ago but I‘ve never attempted it. 1mo

Watching the movie since we finished the book yesterday. We liked it and thought it was pretty close to the book. My son is definitely a critic of the minor details that were changed.
