Don't Forget the Candy Canes

I'm sure most of you are very busy right now finishing up your shopping, decorating, baking, etc.  Some of you may not have even begun your holiday preparations; but whatever stage you are in, be sure you don't forget the candy canes.  I think they are such a cheerful little Christmas treat.  They can be hung on a tree, tied onto packages, tucked into stockings, glued together to form a little heart decoration, even tucked into a table centerpiece.  Oh yes, and just eaten straight out of their little hard to open cellophane package.  And once the holidays are over, you can throw any leftovers into your food processor, and you have a delicious peppermint topping for ice cream, cakes, or any dessert really.

Oh it wouldn't be Christmas without candy canes ... they're one of the first things I buy each year!

I love to have candy canes, too, but sadly I won't be buying a single one this year. Peppermint aggravates my dd's acid reflux, and since she loves them, I don't want to tempt her by having them hanging around. I keep absentmindedly thinking that I need to get some, but then I remember. Oh, well, it's a small sacrifice really.
