Less than a day left!

Tomorrow is Christmas unless you live in Asia than it's already the 25th. Kids are excited. Hubby is taking it easy and I don't have anything to do besided cooking dinner. A laid back day indeed!

Yesterday I received my mom's care package from home. It got stuck in Canada for an extra 9 days and we have no idea why. My mom was stressed that we wouldn't get it by Christmas. Lo and behold, it came!

Now see, Portuguese kinda go overboard when it comes to food. I know! I know! Is that possible?! lol Here is the edible loot that was inside the box.

I told my mom USA also sells Ferrero Rocher and I there are 2 Italian stores that sells Penettone. She said the ones from Italy are better. lol My mom! I was trying to read the ingredients but it doesn't appear on the nutrition tag or on the box itself. We'll see how they taste tomorrow morning. Penettone are an Italian version of a lighter fruit cake. It has some raisins in it but mostly cake. The kids have their own mini version of it too. I'm 34 years old and my mom still wants to make sure I'm ok. Aww mom!

Here's what I'm really happy about. Caramilk. In the states I have seen Caramello but only at certain dollar stores. World Market does sell Caramilk but they are almost $1.50 each! Yikes! Good old mom sent me some. No matter what age, she will always send me care packages.

I hope today will be a smooth day for all of you. For my readers all the way to Asia and that do celebrate Christmas, Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays!

All of the treats look yummy! I hope you enjoy them all! I also wish you a very Merry Christmas. I love your blog and am so happy I found it. I took French in High School and just adore the language. I am glad I get to see some of it used here! Makes me feel young again! Have a wonderful day!
