Christmas Time Special - Movies and Snowman Poop!

It's the most delicious and fun time of the year! Every year, Erin and I have a list of Christmas movies we watch starting right after we put away the turkey and cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving. I thought it would be fun to include a few of our favs along with a recipe that Erin has been talking about forever, but I've never actually tried.


Yep, as difficult as it is to believe, this foodie has never had this delicacy. So we will make it today and post pictures as we go along!

Okay, first the flicks!

Erin and I LOVE Home Alone!
Home Alone parts 1 and 2 are da bomb and a holiday must! Marv and Harry are the perfect criminals, and what kid doesn't dream of thwarting the bad guys? It's always a little sad in part 2 where Kevin is standing on top of the World Trade Center.

The Santa Clause has become one of our favorites
Tim Allen is just awesome in this flick, and Erin and I have made it part of our regular holiday watching. The story is a bit silly and the graphics are downright primitive, but it's campy enough to make us come back again and again.

No one dives into a role like Will Ferrell. No one. He totally gives it up for Elf and you just have to love him. Erin and I have added this a regular to our holiday viewing.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Seriously, this is Jim Carry at his finest over-acting. Okay, maybe Liar Liar or Pet Detective are right up there too. And anyone who's seen The Good Wife has to love Christine Baranski as Martha May.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas - the Cartoon Version
Erin and I watch the cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas every year too. When she was a girl, Erin got to stay up and watch this movie every Christmas Eve, and to this day, it has remained aglow in her heart. And it never gets any better when Ravenscroft sings "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." No one can ever replace that man's rich bass and perfect delivery.

A Christmas Story
"Ho! Ho! Ho!" Who can't hear the grumpy Santa as he pushes Ralphy down the slide. Or "Fra-ge-lee" or "It's a major award!" There are so many awesome one-liners in this movie that you could have an entire conversation in just A Christmas Story quotes.

National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Erin and I sometimes watch this one twice during the holiday season. It just never gets old and Chevy Chase delivers the performance of a lifetime.

Nobody does it better than Chevy!
There are a zillion one-liners in this one, and Erin and I will usually start laughing as soon as a scene starts to get set up:

Smells like fried pussycat.
Give me someone. Anyone. And give me someone while I'm waiting.
Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas. Kiss my ass. Kiss his ass. Kiss your ass. Happy Hanukkah.

And of course, who could forget Chevy's epic tantrum when his boss gives him a jelly of the month club membership instead of a bonus.

Alright, we have the entertainment lined up, now for some food! Here's the recipe we are making tonight!

Snowman Poop
1 package of Oreos
1 package of creamed cheese
1 package of white chocolate chips

Grind the Oreos up in a food processor until they are powder.
Mix in the creamed cheese until it forms a paste.
Form into bite-sized balls.
Melt the chocolate chips.
Dip the balls into the melted chocolate and place on wax paper to cool.

Enjoy! Don't worry, in January, I'll post some workout routines to help burn off those extra holiday calories!

Grind the Oreos to powder
Add the softened cream cheese into the Oreos.
Use a double-boiler to melt the chocolate
Once the cream cheese is thoroughly mixed, make small balls out of it.
Dip the balls into the chocolate
Put on parchment paper
Place in fridge to cool
Put in a festive bowl and serve coffee in a
Birth of an American Gigolo cup

For whatever reason, my chocolate got harder and harder to work with. Eventually I was making reindeer poop topped with chocolate. But guess what? It was still delicious!

I highly recommend serving your snowman poop with coffee in a Birth of an American Gigolo cup of course. LOL!

There isn't much I want for Christmas that I don't already have. The best gift I've ever been given is Erin's love. I treasure her more than anything. There's nothing under the tree that can even begin to compare. Her love and her heart are the axis of my universe and the atoms of my being.

I wish that for each of you, my friends. Hold on to those that mean the most to you. Treasure them and appreciate them. Show them just how much they mean to you.

Happy holidays, my friends! Adventure on!
