Do you ever get addicted to Netflix?! Gosh, it is SOOO dangerous. As soon as I start a show I am hooked like obsessed, it's not normal. But I can't help it. Every chance I get a lunch break at work I open my laptop to watch, sitting at the bank I put my earphone in and watch on my phone, late at night I watch... literally any spare chance I get I watch. My latest addiction?! Scandal! Damn this show is good. I should have known to come from the writer of Grey's Anatomy.
Well, two weeks later I have finished the first two seasons. But it was confusing at times because I would watch current shows on Thursdays then watch the previous seasons but then in a previous season, they would look back in time so it was like I had three time periods, I kept getting confused.
Now what to watch next?! Anyone? Ideas, please! Not that I have any spare time in my schedule. I am lucky really that Scandal only had two seasons or else I wouldn't be typing this blog post right now. I would still be laying on the sofa, but I would totally be watching Scandal!!!
I'm not lying my mom just turned on Netflix Mad Men but I already completed those 5 0r 6 seasons. But I did just sing along with the opening music LOL
So, these Bailey's Mint Truffles? You need them in YO life! I popped a few too many of these. Okay, all of last week I popped a few too many truffles. I had a bag of Lindt Lindor Truffles at my desk at the Santa Ana Location and a tin of Roses on my desk at the Fullerton location. Maybe that's why my face started to look like a pepperoni pizza. Truffles for breakfast, lunch, and snack is probably not the best diet. #oops
Anyways back to these truffles, it was the Port Party at work last naturally I made truffles. And naturally, I added booze, because booze is necessary for truffles. Well, in my world anyway.
I rolled the truffles in chocolate jimmies and in sweetened cocoa powder. I couldn't decide which I liked better, the powder made such a smooth truffle but the sprinkles created a nice combination of textures. So I ate both 🙂
These would be a perfect addition to your Christmas Party, I hope you give these Baileys Mint Truffles a go!
