Happy happy

25 December 2007


[My holiday cards this year, December 2007.]

We’re off to the beach to soak in some of this beautiful, sunny, clear (and cold) day — after breakfast, that is. The past few days have been a whirlwind of eating some really good meals, visiting friends and eating cookies (and pumpkin pie with piles of whipped cream!), and baking. I made some dried fruit-and-nut cookies dipped in chocolate for my dad, as well as some low-fat chocolate-chocolate chip cookies; I also made cornbread for the cornbread dressing tonight, and an apple pie. Whew. After today, I take a little break!!

Wishing you lots of good cheer and delicious food today and every day.
