I had some random leftover items from Thanksgiving I needed to use up. 1 orange, 2 apples, half a bag of dried cranberries and a bag of fresh cranberries. Immediately PIE popped into my head and I went to Pinterest to find a good recipe. I found this one and set to work. It was absolute TORTURE waiting until NJhusband came home from work and dinner was over before eating it. I don't think I ever ate my dinner so fast. One bite in and I was hooked. I actually said to NJhusband "it tastes like Christmas". SO so good. Definitely going on the family favorite list.
In other domestic news, Amazon had a KILLER deal on a Dyson around Cyber Monday. I didn't really NEED a new vacuum, but it was a great price and I knew eventually my 10+ year old model would crap out and I knew I wanted to replace it with a Dyson, so we took the plunge.
NJhusband just finished vacuuming the rugs and floors and my carpets have NEVER looked this good. Immediately I noticed a difference in how clean our carpets looked compared to when we used our old vacuum. They look brand new again. We had just vacuumed on Sunday with our old vacuum and I was amazed at what came out of our carpets just now with the Dyson. I honestly didn't think I needed a new vacuum and I was dead wrong. Everyone in the NJhousehold has allergies (including Orion!) and I think this is really going to help.
