Sparkling Pomegranate Berry Punch #SundaySupper

An easy to make Pomegranate, Cranberry, Raspberry and Pink Moscato Champagne Punch.

Sparkling Pomegranate Berry Punch
With the Holidays here and Christmas quickly approaching I figured there was no better time then the present to share this Sparkling Pomegranate Berry Punch for Sunday Supper.
This weeks theme is Libational Recipes and with Rum and Pink Moscato Champagne I think we have it covered.
Pomegranate, cranberry and raspberries make this a smooth sipper with a gorgeous color perfect for brunch, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Years and any other special occasion! 
I like to soak the berries in the rum prior to making the punch for a boozy little treat in the bottom of your glass.
Bewarned to tread lightly and sip slowly these go down faster then you'll realize.

Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies

Soft and chewy chocolate cookies with chocolate and mint chips are a favorite all year and super easy to make.

Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies
When we were at the grocery store last weekend there was one of those displays of mint baking chips on sale that was screaming, stock up! Stock up now before they're gone because you know the minute you run out and head back to the store to get more they'll be gone.
So yesterday when the kids were wanting to make cookies to fill our snowman jar we decided on Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies.
 They're always a favorite and perfect for the cookie jar or holiday cookie trays.
We thought these would be great to enjoy while we decorated our Christmas tree but by the time we had dinner we opted to snuggle on the couch with our cookies and watch a Christmas movie instead.
Our poor tree has been sitting in the corner of the living room naked for the last few days.
Hopefully tonight everyone will be up to getting it decorated.
If not we'll have to make another batch of Double Chocolate Mint Chip Cookies for tomorrow because they'll be gone by tonight! 
Good thing I stocked up.

FoodSaver® FM200 Vacuum Sealer Giveaway

This post is sponsored by FoodSaver® Vacuum Sealing System. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
With a family of 5 we almost always buy our meats and cheese when they are on sale to help save money on our grocery budget and for the convince of not needing to run to the grocery store.
With the FoodSaver® FM200 Vacuum Sealer it helps our groceries stay fresh longer by removing all the air from the bag leaving a nice airtight seal.
I find it quick and easy to use.
We buy lots of meat in bulk but I hate how it always ends up freezer burnt after only a few weeks in a normal freezer bags with the FoodSaver® I no longer have that problem.
I can't wait for the next time we buy half a cow or Colt and the boys go fishing to be able to keep our food fresh for longer.
FoodSaver® saves us time and money by preventing freezer burn and extending the lifespan of our food.
For more information please check out the FoodSaver® Website.
