Music and Spices, A Must for Christmas Giving!

Pentatonix's Take on Some Traditional Christmas Music!
My Favorite Spice Company Always Makes a Statement!
What is better this time of year to put out the music and cook a lovely fragrant meal while decorating the tree and house?  I can't think of anything better.  One of my favorite groups, Pentatonix has just come out with a new CD of Christmas favorites their way, a cappella.  They were my favorites to win the third season of the Sing-Off and they didn't disappoint!  Since then they are multi-award winning including two Grammys!  I think if you enjoy Manhattan Transfer, you will enjoy these kids from Arlington, TX.  Take a listen to Mary, Did You Know?  It is a fabulous version from That's Christmas to Me!  One more thing, Pentatonix will be having their first Christmas special next Wednesday, December 14 on NBC at 8 PM, Eastern Standard Time.  Check local listings for time.

So for the spice in your life.  A favorite of mine has always been Penzeys.  I think that foods bring people together just as the son of the founders of Penzeys, Bill Penzey, Jr. believes  He took some heat recently for coming out against the Trump philosophies.  The bumper sticker above was included in my recent order.  We have to be kind to each other and Penzeys have great spices, herbs, extracts, gift boxes, etc..  I don't think you will be disappointed.  I also want to give a shout out to my friend, Marcie who has an Etsy shop called Backyard Patch Herbs for Bath, Tea & Cooking.  She has a lot of lovely herbal combinations at very reasonable prices.  Was hoping to get some decorating done myself, but items have to be moved out of the way to get to decorations.  Maybe later this week!

We are actually having some sun peeking out from the clouds!  A blessing!  Going to be talking about my annual Herbal Christmas Box giveaway tomorrow, because it is less than three weeks to Christmas!  Just ridiculous how fast time is flying by!  Hope you are having a great day.
