Stocking Up

While I was at Vons this morning, I decided that it was time to stock up for my holiday baking. Here's what my pantry is now loaded with:

20 pounds of flour
15 pounds of sugar
8 pounds of brown sugar
3 large cans of Crisco
6 pounds of butter
8 bags of chocolate chips
2 bags of mini M&M's
2 bags of sliced almonds
2 large cans of pumpkin
2 jars of marshmellow fluff
12 large Hershey bars (for baking)

With my pantry full and my spice rack loaded, I am ready to commence baking. These supplies certainly won't take me through Christmas, but they should get me through mid-December!

I'm off to make a pumpkin pie!

(In case anyone was wondering, this is why Susie looks amazing and I look like me! :-) I'm stocking up, while she's signing up!)

I am excited about holiday baking. I have my favorites but I always like to try new recipes. Rachel Rays magazine has some really great recipes I cant wait to try.

What's your speciality?

Holy cramoley! 20 pounds of flour! I have to agree that holiday baking is at least 1/2 of the fun of Christmas. The trick is to give it all away!!
