Bring on the holidays, I think we are ready
Christmas orders have all been sent or picked up, and the little bit of holiday shopping that we do is completed. Sunday I woke up in the cooking mood. I started dough for oatmeal bread, and put the ingredients for a cream of broccoli soup, with carrots and chicken in the slow cooker. After some work in the studio I came in and baked sugar cookies. I think it had been 15 years or more since I rolled out dough and used cookie cutters to actually make cookies. When I was rolling out the dough I felt like I should be using guides to get the thickness right. I was too lazy to make a frosting for fancy decorating, so I made do with some colored sprinkles and a bag of chocolate chips that I had in the cupboard. They are a little odd looking, but they taste quite yummy.
We have a tree this year! I should probably say that Sophie has a tree. If she isn't laying down underneath it, she is attacking the skirt. At least she doesn't climb it.
I hope that your holiday preparations, be they big or small, are coming together nicely.
