My cookies are almost done. I was going to cut back this year, but they called from the Church and asked if I would make some for Father's open house on Sunday....a couple of batches. So on Friday I am going to finish up by frosting and decorating the ones in the freezer. I made butter cookies, cutouts, chocolate drops, thumbprints, peanut butter kiss cookies, and pecan bars. I need to frost the cutouts and thumbprints. I found an easy way to frost some of my cookies. I mix up some white, red and green frosting ...put the cookies on a rack, then drizzle some of each color across the cookies and sprinkle with candy sugar. They really look pretty and it is not much work.
Our plans this year are starting to get complicated. I need to write them down on the calendar. Christmas eve eve...we go to Joe's son's house for dessert and coffee. I am taking the dessert. Christmas eve morning... Joe's grandson and family come here for breakfast...Christmas eve at 2 pm we go to my son's house for gift exchange and food.. most of my family will be there...Christmas morning we go to early Mass and then at noon Joe's other son and girl friend come here for dinner. So, I have had to really check the cookbooks to find some recipes that will work for each of these parties. I'll tell you tomorrow what recipes I have come up with.
This morning it is raining. It has rained all through the night. Last year at this time we were covered with snow. We have a lot on our plate today. We have to run into Rockford after some appointments here in town. Our car needs the oil changed and I have to have a blood test. I hope that we have time to have a nice lunch and just stop by the mall to see the Christmas decorations. Well, that's about it for today. I noticed that many bloggers aren't posting as often or leaving comments. Everyone must be busy getting ready for the big holiday weekend. Take time to enjoy it all...
