Merry Christmas In July~
Im just getting around to posting. I have been enjoying Christmas in July this month. Ive been trying to do something Christmassy everyday (even if its only a little something.... :o)
Ive watched lots of Christmas movies this month. Worked on a few crafts and tried a few Christmas recipes that Im considering using for holiday get togethers this year.
Ive been working a lot on my Holiday Notebook ( I would be lost without it)
A recipe Im going to try out this week is a gift in a jar recipe. Its one Im considering giving to family and friends if I like the way it turns out. I will be sure to let you know what I think of them.... Heres the recipe...

1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cloves

In a large bowl, combine the muffin mix with the butter, egg, vanilla and milk Stir the mixture until the ingredients are blended. Do not overmix. The batter will be lumpy.
