Tis’ the Season!

I KNOW!  It has been a long time since I have blogged…so sorry.  Instead of going back to all that has happened in the last several months, I am going to start with now.

It’s the Christmas season…only 4 more days, actually!  I LOVE this time of year the best!  I love the baking, the eating, the get togethers, the shopping, the giving, every part of it.  I even LOVE having my kids home with me for 3 weeks!  I am done with my shopping and with most of the wrapping too!  I have made 2 batches of fudge, cut-out sugar cookies, homemade frosting, and mint meringue cookies.  I have been to the mall in the midst of the busiest crowd I have seen.  We have seen Santa and even had a chance to give to those in need this holiday season.

I WISH WE HAD SNOW!!  It has been fluctuating from the 50s to the 30s and has been cloudy and gloomy.  This is not cheerful weather!  This weather has given me a cold!  Hmmm…the kids have been able to be outside more than last year, but seriously…I WANT SNOW!

Since cooking is what we really like to talk about, I am going to tell you about my goal for the new year.  It is to choose a cookbook and cook my way through it.  Each and every recipe, even if it sounds odd to me, I am going to try it!  I asked Santa for a cookbook stand for Christmas, so whichever cookbook I choose I will be able to display it nicely on my (newly uncluttered) countertops!  The decision I haven’t made yet, is which cookbook should it be??  Do YOU have any suggestions??

Merry Christmas!  –Sweet
