It was crunch time in the kitchen this week. Lots and lots of baked goods! I came up with a few new cookie recipes, which I promise to get written up and shared in the coming weeks because they are GOOD!
It has been nice to have the country kids and hubby home most of this week. We are trying to reconnect as a family in these fast paced times. From going to a movie to playing board games, it has been nice spending time away from phones, computers, and other technology.
So what made me smile this week
It was -6 degrees but did these idiots care?
Peanut Butter Blossoms! Anyone want one? Now what to bake next? Hmmmm.....
Just a little peep show from the red light district..... It was a brisk -9 and falling when I went to lock up (even though they have been locked up all day.) Some of the girls hopped off the roost for a little bed time snack.
It may be cold, but my girls rock! Warm, fresh egg for breakfast! Thanks Buffy!!
Chewy ginger cookies! Yummy!!
This is where I sit on the couch..... Of course we have a rule in this house call "move your feet, lose your seat."
I do believe Heidi the homestead hound is invoking this rule.
Chocolate Andes Creme de menthe cookies. Yes, they taste as good as they look!
Oh I took a lick of my peppermint stick
And I thought it tasted yummy
It used to be on my Christmas tree
But now it's in my tummy!
True story! LOL I'm sure no one will notice......
From our family to yours.... Merry Christmas!
I hope you took time to enjoy the little things for they are what makes life worth living.
Remember to take time out of your busy day to find your own things to make you smile!
