Welcome back to Homework and Horseplay! As you can see I am posting our Tea Time Tuesday Christmas Treasury Edition a little late… Some how the day slipped away from us, so we had a very low key tea time this evening.
The Golden Christmas Treasury: 25 Stories, Poems, and Carols by Rick Bunsen
We are slowly working our way through our “Bookvent” (Not sure what this is? Check out my Christmas Traditions post.), and Jack unwrapped this book today. Instead of picking out a special poem for tea time we took turns reading this aloud to each other. I picked it up years ago from a thrift store. It has some really great short stories in it.
This week Kenten made us Peanut Butter Bars. To make your own bars you will need:
- 1 ½ cups brown sugar
- 1 ¾ cups powdered sugar
- 10 tablespoons butter divided
- 1 ½ cups peanut butter
- 1 cup milk chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Peanut Butter Bars is one of our favorite Christmas treats, but this summer when my trusty MacBook died I lost all of our recipes (among many other things, uggh!) so we had to find a new recipe. We tried this recipe from Culinary Hill today. Overall they were pretty good, but a bit sweeter than the ones we normally make.
This afternoon we cozied up in our school room… As you can see we really did keep it simple! We didn’t even set out cups or drinks. We still had a sweet evening tea time though.
Thank you for joining us for Tea Time Tuesday Christmas Treasury Edition…
With less than two weeks before Christmas and Christmas break about to begin for us, I most likely will not be sharing our tea times until the new year starts. Feel free to look back on all of our 2017 Tea Time Tuesday posts over on my Tea Time page.
