Apparently the incredible dark feeling of this month has not been all in my head. The news reporter said that out of the first sixteen days of February there were six entire days with zero sunshine. And as far as the other ten days were concerned they said we've only had 16% sun this month. Basically, us folks in West Michigan have been living under cloud cover for the past two weeks straight. Add snow, cold, and horrible roads to that... Hooray for sunshine right now!
2. Try out Cream Cheese Mints recipe
One of the fourteen "attempt to redeem February" goals has been marked off. Last night little Abe and I whipped up a very tiny batch of Cream Cheese Mints. I have had this recipe pinned for quite sometime so it's nice to have given it a go. I had the four ingredients on hand so I didn't have to purchase anything special for this (although we're out of powdered sugar now). And this recipe is super quick. Okay, mine look horrible but the flavor is great! This is a recipe I will definitely make again. They are super sweet, like almost too sweet. The couple of hours to set is more like overnight. But only four ingredients, fun little candy, no baking, very yummy. Yep, this was worth a try.
