Seriously people, it’s Rice Crispie Treats. In fact – here is the freaking photo of the cute little turkeys that were supposed to be so dang simple to make.
This year for Thanksgiving, my family( knowing me well), assigned me to bring dessert for the kids. Forget the gravy, stuffing or mashed potatoes, they know I would crumble under the pressure (or send them to the ER with food poisoning).
So I saw this darling lil picture in Better Homes and Gardens of rice crispie treat turkeys. I mean really. Look at the photo? Simple to make, smiling happy people and cute little turkeys.
I just don’t get it – why a simple thing of melting marshmallows and butter and rolling it into balls can become such a complete fiasco for me. My husband doesn’t get it either. In fact, it is a constant source of amazement for him.
After about 10 minutes of “holiday fun”, the boys were done. Especially Nicholas, who had more rice crispies on his body than on his poor turkey.
And Tristan’s turkey looked like it had been massacred.
I’ve said this before, but Thank God for my Sis-In-Law Audra. She saved the day (and the remaining ooey gooey mixture ) and figured out how to make them resemble turkeys. (If she wasn’t so darned sweet, I’d have to hate her).
However – it wasn’t a TOTAL loss. Because thanks to my good friend Stacey Puckett (owner of Harvest Crate) gave me a HUGE (I”m talking suitcase here) crate of fresh produce to take to my family for Thanksgiving. So that beyond made up for the rice crispie disaster.
Harvest Crate is awesome. If you are needing produce for the holidays, a gift for a family or office – this is a great option. Everything is fresh from the farm and packaged for you – just order online and they will take care of the rest. Even deliver it to your doorstep (FREE delivery in the Tulsa area)! Prices start at $33.
SIDEBAR: Moms! If you are looking for a new fundraiser for your school – here you go! Harvest Crate does fundraisers! And who wouldn’t want to buy some fresh fruit instead of wrapping paper, candles and knick-knacks that you will never use? Just visit the website or email my friend Stacy for more details.
And bonus for all of you that are still reading…:) I am giving away a Harvest Crate on my blog! Just leave a comment by Wed. Dec. 7 and we’ll pick a winner. And ship it to you just in time for the holidays!
(I’ll even throw in some of my rice crispie turkeys!) Just kidding.
