These roasted almonds are coated in a maple and cinnamon glaze and roasted until golden and crunchy. The maple syrup makes them a perfect Christmas treat because we all deserve a little extra sweetness in our lives at this time of year. I’ve been told that these should come with a disclaimer because they are so addictive. One minute you’ll be nibbling on a few nuts and the next, the whole bowl will be empty. I say go for it, they’re so delicious!
The excitement around food is probably one of my favourite things about Christmas! Everyone gets excited planning their Christmas menu and seeing as I could talk about food all day long, it makes me very happy.
As the year starts to draw to a close and we approach the beginning of a new year, I find myself reflecting on all that I am grateful for. I’ve been starting off each day by thinking of three things I am grateful for. I wanted to share with you today’s thoughts.
I’m grateful that at this time of year, there is more love in the world.
I’m grateful for a beautiful blue sky on a cold winter’s day.
I’m grateful for each and every one of you!
