you dropped in today.
We’re in the kitchen
Sit down in the rocker and I’ll pour you a cup of tea.
Better yet, I have a few extra aprons 🙂
Can you smell all the delicious Christmassy aromas?
It’s cookie central here today.
Sarah, who leaves on her mission trip on Jan 4th, is having a fundraiser ~ a Christmas Cafe this Sat evening in the basement of our church. It looks so festive, decorated with beautiful white, red and green Christmas colours. We moved every available lamp so that we will have cozy lighting, along with floating candles at every table. The Christmas tree will be shining in the corner and pinecone wreaths are hanging on the wall.
She, and her brother John, are working hard on the musical entertainment for the evening
and I am in charge of the refreshments.
I am very thankful that all the girls over at Mennonite Girls Can Cook have been busy posting Christmas cookie recipes. I’m baking my own sugar cookies, brownies, and cupcakes, plus
- Lovella’s Chocolate Peppermint cookies
- Charlotte’s Mini Chip Butter Crisps
- Trish’s Butter Balls
- Trish’s Shortbread Meltaways
- Trish’s Peanut Butter Swirl Cookies
- and Betty’s Sparkly Ginger cookies (which have already won a 4 out of 4 star rating in this household)
Do you think I may be a little too ambitious??
I may need to hear some encouraging cheering from the comment section 🙂
hundreds of cookies later
I’m going to collapse rest tonight and go at it again tomorrow
and I think I’ll add
Eija’s World’s Best Cookies to the list (how could I resist with that name?)
if I can only figure out what kind of sryup she uses.
Molasses, corn, golden, maple?
