Anyway, though the food is the most important part, I have been working like mad trying to get all 10 of those bins emptied, so we don't look like Scrooges to the rest of the family. I finally got the last Christmas tree decorated yesterday.
Here it is:

And just for your impertinence on Good Food Friday, you can have this:
Sassing the Lunch Lady Is Naughty (not Nice) Lumps of Coal
1 cup whipping cream
2 cups marshmallows
2/3 cup mint candy canes
1/4 c nuts (chopped)
2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs
Whip cream to stiff peaks. Mince marshmallows and candy canes in food processor or chop very fine. Fold marshmallows, candy cane, and nuts into whipped cream. Cover and freeze until mixture is firm. Scoop out balls and roll in cookie crumbs. Return to freezer until ready to serve.
Please, leave me your yummy dessert suggestions!!!
