Gingerbread party!

As some you may know, I work at target now, so I happen to see a lot of their products pass through my checkout lane. However, one thing definitely caught my eye. I’ve said in previous posts that sometimes my mom likes to hold big gingerbread house decorating parties for the family around Christmas time. She typically makes countless gingerbread houses from scratch because we can never really find any safe gingerbread houses.

Well imagine my surprise when I found out that target is now selling a whole bunch of peanut and tree but free gingerbread house kits at their stores. They come in a whole bunch of different designs, too.

I’m just really happy about this news because it potentially means that my poor mom won’t have to spend all that time making gingerbread houses from scratch the next time we decide to throw a gingerbread party.

I took a couple of pictures of the kits during one of my work breaks. They’re pretty cool!

This one is probably their most common. It’s a normal house that you can build yourself.

This kit is completely prebuilt, which is also super cool.

They also have a really cool gingerbread train kit.

There were a whole bunch of other cool kits too, but these were by far my favorite.

Of course, always check the label before eating anything, and don’t eat anything you’re uncomfortable with eating.

Until next time!


Thankful for food

Hey again everyone!

I’m really sorry for the delayed posting, but my school schedule has just gotten more and more hectic. Going into senior year is crazy at an IB school like the one I go to. In fact, thanksgiving break is really the first time I’ve had enough time to work on a post.

Speaking of thanksgiving, I hope all of you had a great one. I know I did. Like every year, my aunt and uncle made a fantastic breakfast and dinner. It’s like double the thanksgiving. Personally, breakfast food is my favorite kind of food anyway, so I love the setup.

Also, to those of you without allergies, let me say that it means the world to people like me when accommodations can be made. Knowing that I could enjoy my thanksgiving breakfast/dinner at my aunt’s house was fantastic, and I always love how she goes out of her way to make everything safe for me.

Thanksgiving is sort of a holiday revolving around food, or at least the idea of eating together as a family. Because of this, food is really important, and it’s also important to try and be inclusive to those of us with certain dietary restrictions.

I would like to take this moment to thank my aunt and uncle for always taking the time and looking at the labels of every food you buy so that I can enjoy my thanksgiving at your house. It is a truly special experience.

I also hope all of you readers had a great thanksgiving as well. It can be a stressful time for everyone, but at the end of the day, it’s fun to spend time with those you love. Of course the main draw for me is and always will be the food. I pretty much wait all year for the stuff that’s served on thanksgiving.

Heres a picture of me eating some of the leftovers from last night. Please ignore how I look, it was kind of an unexpected shot.

I hope all of you had a great thanksgiving, and I look forward to Christmas, when I get to eat even more delicious food!

Until next time!
