Raise your hand if you can’t believe Christmas is only 12 days away (my hand is so high in the air it is touching the ceiling)! Where does the time go?!? Who else still has some all of their Christmas shopping to? And who is still trying to decided what treats to make to bring to friends and what dishes to bring to some up coming Christmas parties (my hand is in the air again).
Well I thought it would be fun to have a Kitchen Concoctions count down to Christmas! Some of my other favorite blogs have been doing a 12 days of Christmas of different sorts, Christy did 12 days of Christmas cookies and Mel has been having a sugar rush over at her blog with assorted treats. But I wanted to do a true count down to Christmas/12 Days of Christmas. But since a lot of blogs are featuring a ton of sweets right now I decided I wanted to do something different. I originally had one idea floating around in my head but then I was looking through some cookbooks to feature as the CBOM for December and it hit me. I wanted to do 12 days of breakfast/brunch recipes! Since for me besides the big Christmas dinner Christmas morning breakfast is the most important meal of this special day. In fact since I love breakfast foods so much I might have to declare this my favorite meal! Since December 13th is the 1st day in the 12 days of Christmas I am sharing the first recipe today. So over the next 12 days expect me to share a breakfast/bruch recipe everyday right up to Christmas! I know what you are thinking, that I don’t have the best tract record with blogging daily but please have faith in me and wish me luck in this little challenge I have set for myself. AND not only am I guaranteeing at least one breakfast/brunch recipe every day for the next 12 days, but several days I have multiple posts planned to share because I have several giveaways and other fun things planned. So check back daily, in fact check back multiple times a day! It will be a fun (and for me exhausting, lol!) next 12 days!
