Side note: I just have to say a huge THANK YOU for the wonderful response to yesterday’s bead update. So many sets sold so fast!! There are still lots of great beads to be had though. Pop on over to my Bead Box Buyables pages (there are SIX pages!) to snag a few sets for yourself.
OMG… my waistline is going to double this Holiday season if I’m not careful. The other day, Ron said “we should make lots of different cookies this Christmas… not just cut outs. Ya know, like single batches of all sorts.” To which I excitedly replied “I’ve been pinning recipes!!” I’ve always wanted to get an invite to a Cookie Party. You know the kind. It’s where you bake 5 dozen of a single type of cookie and bring it to the party. Then, you bring home 5 dozen completely different cookies. Doesn’t that sound fun, and yummy? (And the best kind of fattening.) Oh yes. I think it sounds delightfully delicious. Some of these recipes I had a hard time deciding if I should pin them in my OMG that looks so delicious board or over on the Holiday Folly board. Can’t I have peppermint Oreos year round?
And for those that are thinking “Kerry, what about Thanksgiving? Why are you decking your halls so early?” To me, the HOLIDAYS go from November 1 – January 2. Peppermint goes with turkey, in my opinion, and you can make merry all season long. Why not have a tin of yummy treats out for Thanksgiving dessert? Maybe you don’t have room for a whole piece of pie… you could pop a cookie in your pie hole. Seriously, yo.
