I took about 500 pictures. Do you want to see them? Seriously, I can't even begin to take the time to go through them although I did put them in labeled folders in my "pictures" file in Windows. Therefore I will get my act together and probably blog more about my wonderful trip in January.
It is the Christmas season so I must bake for my peeps. Missing the main guy terribly but knowing he loved all of the cookies and other goodies I used to make. This is what I intend to do in the next 10 days, minus one for the Christmas party I am going to and staying overnight.
-Brandied Persimmon mini breads I made these in 2010
-Maple Sugar Cookie cutouts and I intend to decorate them! ( dough is made)
-Chocolate Filled Hazelnut shortbread-like cookies ( again dough is made)
-Rocky Road, simple and love, love it!
-Chocolate Crackle Cookies, another fav.
Oatmeal Cranberry cookies -DONE!!!
Plus I am going to start my Christmas Plum Pudding as it needs 8-10 days to cure. This one might be a little harder because we used to douse it with it's daily splash of Cognac and give it a stir. It is supposed to be a family participation event. Maybe I'll call in a few of the neighbors.
I had a little setback as I had a "nodule" removed from my arm that required stitches so I need to give it a little time before welding the rolling pin on those roll outs.
I'll keep you posted.
