A Christmas Disneyland Visit Part 1 2019-11-16

After the last few trips to Disneyland and them being super busy on Sunday, the Flowers family is mixing it up and going to Disneyland on a Saturday. T and I were hoping that might mean a reduction in crowds.
It also happens that Disneyland has already started its transformation for the holidays. It's Christmas here so that's what we're celebrating! Christmas is only 38 days away!

Halloween M&Ms

Sometimes it's better late than never. I picked up these Halloween M&Ms and we just didn't get around to trying them. Kids, we're a little late but change into your Halloween shirts, we're doing a Halloween M&M taste test.

There's 3 different fun flavors to sample. A Creepy Cocoa Crisp, White Pumpkin Pie, and White Candy Corn. And depending how good your memory is, yes, these are very similar to last years flavors. The Creepy Cocoa Crisp replaced Cookies and Screeem from last year.

National Bundt Day - November 15th

Today is National Bundt Day! This cake is delicious and even though Ian just asked for it on his birthday a few days ago, we're getting it again for Bundt Day! Nordic Ware, the largest maker of bundt pans, having sold over 60 million of them, designated this day as National Bundt Day.

National Indian Pudding Day - November 13th

Indian Pudding? When I first read that November 13th was National Indian Pudding Day I initially dismissed it. While I'm a fan of curries, I was pretty sure the kids wouldn't be, so I wasn't going to pursue it. But I read further and learned that it's not this India, but instead is meant to reference the American Indian and the corn the English colonists received from them.

Having just used the corn meal the day before for the pizza crusts, I knew we had all the ingredients to make this sweet treat. The kids were excited to help out once again in the kitchen.

National Pizza with the Works except Anchovies Day - November 12th

Another day to celebrate pizza? Perfect! I'm interpreting Pizza with the Works to mean any toppings you could possibly want on it. Not necessarily the standard green peppers, onions, olives, and sausage. Anything is fair game. Anything except Anchovies! Those are forbidden today.
