Bits and Pieces 12th Edition

Hi guys!  Time for another Bits and Pieces posts.  

First thing...my Whirley Pop giveaway ends TONIGHT at midnight.  I'll pick a winner in the morning.  Don't forget to enter.
If you already have a Whirley Pop, you should still enter and give one to your favorite person that doesn't have one.  I used mine this week to make a double batch of kettlecorn that was INHALED in minutes by six hungry boys having a playdate.

Have you started having holiday cookie exchanges with your friends yet?  I went to one last night with ladies at church.  I made seven layer bars, which are always a favorite.

This week I've done a bit of baking, kind of just using whatever I have in my cupboards and freezer.

I had some coconut and random baking chips and nuts to use up, so besides making seven layer bars  I also made sweet and salty granola.  I've been eating it for breakfast every morning on vanilla yogurt.  It's super yummy!

I've actually made dinner every night this week (which is good for me, especially since things have been super busy and crazy at my house lately).  My daughter is in a play, Willy Wonka, and her performances are tonight and tomorrow.  They've been having crazy long rehearsals every day this week.  I've had to either have dinner ready for her to take to rehearsals right after school or take it to her at 6:00.  I think she was impressed that we had a real dinner every night, not cereal.  :)

I cleaned my oven yesterday and boy was it stinky!  I made a double batch of banana bread to make my house smell a little better and to feed the kiddos a snack after school.  And I got to use up the mashed bananas that I've had stashed in the freezer.

I took my kids to see Big Hero 6 last week.  I was really surprised that I liked it so much.  I thought it was cute.  Have you seen it?

Did you notice my favorite Thanksgiving recipe pictures with links on my sidebar?  

We have some big things going on at my house.  I'll share more next week.  Crazy, big, sad and exciting changes.  :)

Have a great weekend!  Check back tomorrow to you see if you won the Whirley Pop.  Your chances are pretty good.  :)
