Holiday Potpourri

Usually this time of year calls for a day of baking. We pack up the plates full of all of our holiday favorite recipes and deliver them to all of our friends. After all of our efforts for healthy eating around here, that just seemed unnecessary. We still baked but just picked our 2 or 3 favorites instead.

I looked and looked for an alternative and I found it, Holiday Potpourri. I tried out this recipe and my family loves it. It is definitely going to be in our home at the holidays from now on. It’s super easy and can be packaged up in so many cute ways for neighbors, teachers, and friends.

Holiday Potpourri

one whole orange (quartered)

1/2 cup cranberries

1Tbsp whole cloves

3 sticks of cinnamon

dash of nutmeg

Quarter the orange and place all of the ingredients into a pot with some water. Leave on the lowest setting and refill the pot when needed.

The mixture will turn dark but continues to smell ridiculously marvelous. You can use one mix for the entire season.

This morning, I took my lovelies out for a little photo session. It was a comedy of errors from start, even before start, to finish. We had wardrobe errors, weather issues, location issues, and some crabbiness, but ho ho ho! A photo is just a moment in time, right?

But look what I snagged of my little monster? Oh, how I love him.
