Makin the rounds

Things have been very busy around these parts lately. We've been getting tons of snow which is making for a gorgeous Christmas seasons. Back on Monday we picked up Mommy and Daddy-in-law in Frankfurt and yesterday we journeyed from Baumholder to Garmisch, to Edelweiss Lodge and Resort. The drive was nerve-wracking to say the least. There was traffic and the worst part was the Rain, for 6 straight hours in the car! Oh and about 30 minutes away from the hotel we hit some really bad road conditions. We made it safe and sound thanks to the hubs!! The weather and traffic added an additional hour onto our trip. All the same we're here in gorgeous Garmisch and have so many fun things planned through Christmas, Munich Christmas Market tomorrow, Couples massages and a tour of the famous Neuschwanstein Castle! It's going to be a wondering and memorable Christmas! 

I wanted to share some Pinterest recipes that I've been attempting lately. Our fav!!: Teriyaki Chicken the recipe is for the Crock Pot but I didn't have 4 hours to wait so I threw it together in a saute pan. It was amazing! Seriously try it! 
Thyme-Baked Chicken. This was ok... may make this again. 
Mongolian Beef. This was good but not great but I will be trying it again!! You notice the Chinese theme... you see it's pretty difficult to find descent Chinese or Mexican food here in Germany- shocker right? Well I'm trying to learn to make these things at home on my own. 

Happy Holidays readers! Hope you have a great weekend!
