I miss writing so much! Seriously!
Yesterday was a frenzy of cookie making; Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate-Raspberry thumbprint, Orange cookies dipped in chocolate and almonds. I also finished making some chocolate Kahlua truffles.
And BLB came over! So great to see him. He’s doing well. Just finished his semester at college. He looks good. He taste-tested the cookies and the peanut butter balls I made the other day
Today, I’m baking Star Bites (short bread cookies, cut into small stars with a ganache filling), Raspberry hearts (short bread cookies with a raspberry filling), mocha cookies, tea cakes and lemon cookies. I also need to make a layered lemon-cheesecake to take to a party on Saturday.
Biker Witch is coming over to help in the afternoon. By then, I’ll be exhausted, and she and Wizard will probably gang up on me and tease me. But it’ll be fun.
We have a family Christmas party on Sat.
What are you all doing? Is everyone getting worn down or do the holidays energize you?
(I’m hoping to get back here Monday to wish you all a Merry Christmas!)
