Christmas is just one week away,
can you believe it?
We've been getting into the holiday spirit around here,
our tree has been up for about 2 weeks,
the house is decorated,
we've had our faux christmas dinner
and exchanged gifts.
(the bf got me an amazing new camera-he's the best)
(like the new photos? the recipe of the week will be
much more visually pleasing)
Today was spent baking Christmas cookies
I made Chocolate Surprise Cookies
(Spoiler: the surprise is peanut butter in the middle)
red velvet whoopie pies,
and Spiced Cardamom Cookies
(there was one casualty..)
I still have plans to make
a cashew/cayenne pepper brittle but,
I'm kind of enjoying this time to sit and relax.
Right now it feels like the calm before the storm-
before the markets, the traveling, trying to see
lots of people at home, holiday stress-not just yet.
Right now it's just me, a sleeping dog,
a glass of wine, and Top Chef re-runs.
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!
