‘Tis the season to start making Gingerbread Houses and if you really want to try making something “different” then try making a gingerbread dog house in honor of your beloved dog! I suppose if you search the internet you will find “dog freindly” ingredients to use if the gingerbread house you are making is for a dog to eat but, the ones we are showing you are intended for human consumption only. We actually found an article by the HoustonPress writing of an Annual Christmas Tail Gingerbread Dog House Competition and provided here are photos. Visit Annual Christmas Tail Gingerbread Dog House Competition for more.

Gingerbread doesn’t have to be only for the holiday time of the year. It can be enjoyed year round. We’re with you though, it does seem to taste better when the holidays and cool weather roll in.
A fun ‘Gingerbread’ book we happened upon looks like it might have use looking to summer and winter dishes to enjoy our love of Gingerbread. We found this over on the Kobo site, if you have a Kobo Reader or have installed the free Kobo app on your desktop or iPad/iPhone this is a great way to enjoy the book anytime.

The print version of the book is available on Amazon. This might be a book that is best enjoyed by the whole family gathered around the paper pages.
Target keeps putting out more Gingerbread holiday items. I know we went down these isles before so they must be putting things out as they come in. Before we had found the little Gingerbread houses as well Gingerbread Women and Man on trays (Gingerbread sightings at Target, big find!)… now we find these cute little stuffed patchwork Gingerbread folks. Sorry the picture isn’t as clear as the shots we took earlier, the area was a mob of folks grabbing up things so supplies might be short this year if you wait very long.
Speaking of ‘short in supply’, last year we complained that everyone’s Gingerbread wrapping paper went out of stock way before wrapping time. We were overjoyed to see a nice supply in Target’s paper area this year… needless to say, we stocked up. We have a chance over the weekend, we’ll pull out the scraps from last year to let you know if the pattern has changed for this year.
