Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

peppermint

OK…I’m getting REAL CHEAP these days!  I was in the checkout line at Walmart and the peppermint patties were calling my name.  I picked up the bag and checked out the price.  I would’ve gotten four…maybe five MINIATURE peppermint patties for $1.  I thought to myself – What a RIP-off!…and then I remembered I’d seen a recipe for homemade peppermint patties online….somewhere…oh yeah…HERE!  So, I assume you can tell what I did.  I made a HUGE batch of peppermint patties for about $1-2 dollars!  They taste exactly like store-bought patties…but mine weren’t so perfect-looking.  But I think if I practice, their looks could improve. :o)

And…another thing I’ve gotta share…which I think is a BRILLIANT tip:  Take a power strip on vacations! GENIUS!  You know, hotel power outlets are few and far between, right?!?  So, with the whole family’s phones, and iPads/Pods etc. needing charging every night, that is one tip I hope to implement on our next trip! I discovered that tip HERE.

I hope you all have a fabulous day!  Do or learn something NEW!

    • I finally tried my hand at making this recipe the other day. Yum! I think they actually tasted better than store-bought patties. Mine were definitely not pretty either, but made up for looks in delicious minty goodness! Just wanted to stop by and say thanks again for sharing! 🙂
