I made both of these candy cane themed meals for myself. This year, I kept seeing women with brooches on their winter coats. I decided to join them and my first brooch of the season is a candy cane brooch. I have a different brooch to wear after Christmas. I am not exactly sure why, but wearing a brooch on my winter coat makes me happy.
