I just uploaded a new episode of the Home with a Twist podcast you can find here and on any channel where you listen to podcasts.
This week I share all my favorite memories of Christmas growing up and how Mother made everything magical for our family.
I shared a fun game you can play called the “Great Candy Cane Pass” which you can find here on my Pinterest board “Ice breakers” where I literally have 103 games. The idea is you pass peppermints right or left depending on your responses and the person with the most peppermints wins. I think this might be fun to play on Christmas Eve.
Next, we talked about a delicious and clever cocktail idea called a Very Merry Ornamentini from Inspired by Charm. I purchased these glass ball oranments I found on Amazon so guests can pour their own cocktails into glasses. Here is the recipe for the sugared cranberries to use as a garnish.
I will serve the sip along side a tray of a traditional Southern appetizer recipe for Crispy Cheese Wafers. They also make a perfect gift packaged up to give to neighbors, co-workers or as a hostess gift. A twist on serving these wafers is along side a dish of pepper jelly and goat cheese.
And we finished the podcast sharing our bookclub selection for January — the classic Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. Go here to read more and to sign up to join our bookclub. We will be meeting January 27 at 7 p.m. to discuss the book. This is a twist on our normal reads, but our goal for 2019 is to read at least 3-4 classics. If you want to join our bookclub, go here to BookMovement our on-line, free platform that manages our bookclub. Membership is free!
That’s a wrap for this week’s chat. I hope to sneak in a few more shows before we move into 2019. Thank you for your positive feedback on my podcast project. Let me know what you want to hear. Remember, seek joy in everyday!
