I wish I could say that building gingerbread houses is a yearly tradition, but the truth of the matter is that it is not. I always have good intentions, but about half the time it never pans out, as we get too busy with other holiday stuff to fill our time. This year I didn't think it would work out again, but while at the commissary, I noticed gingerbread Pop Tarts. Hummm...I picked them up thinking I should buy these as a special treat for the kids (they NEVER get Pop Tarts), as I turned the box over to look at the ingredient list (knowing fully I was going to put them back once I read the ingredients) I noticed a recipe for a gingerbread house made from these Pop Tarts! HOLY COW...an easy gingerbread house plus as a bonus my kids get a treat they will love. I didn't bother to look at the ingredient list at this point. I just bought them.
Proud Army wife and mother to 4 wonderful children. I love to cook, travel, work out and scrapbook life’s adventures when I find the time. We just got orders & are heading back to the states in March 2010. I'm bummed that our time has been cut short, but proud of Hubby for the reason why.
