I have not abandoned my poor lonely blog. I have at least 10 entries that I just need to finish up and post. Why is it so hard to do that sometimes?
In the meantime... some random thoughts...
Today I'm trying my second batch of homemade noodles... like grandma used to make. Only, hers were delicious. Mine are, well, iffy. They are kind of more like dumplings at the moment. But, I bought more flour and chicken broth and I'm ready to try again! I am so fortunate to have a family that is willing to try anything. :) One of my favorite memories is coming home from college to see family and then grandma sending me back with her special homemade noodles, so I wanted to see if I could replicate them. Fingers crossed!
Tomorrow I start baking Christmas cookies. I LOVE this time of year! I think I appreciate it all the more for having worked in retail so long and not having the time for so many years. I absolutely revel in the spirit of the season. Cookies, anyone? I ship! ;)
Sunday our family is in charge of coffee hour for the first time. This could be interesting. But, I love the excuse to dig out my good serving platters and fill them up with (hopefully) yummy goodies. Sarah is going to bake her monster cookies with red and green M&M's. I'm doing my old standbys and trying some new ones too, like Peppermint Meltaways. For some reason, those just sound so delicious to me!
So, I'm doing all this AND trying to stay on my diet. hahahahaha Really. Don't laugh. ;)
I did just safely (or almost safely) make it through Sarah's birthday (on Thanksgiving) and Matt's birthday (this past Monday). Do you know how many cakes that involved all together? Go ahead. Guess. You'll never guess. SIX. That's right. We go a little overboard on celebrating birthdays around here. I LOVE birthdays.
Well, that's my randomness for the day. Now Speedy can quit bugging me about my dead blog. :) (Thanks, Speedy! Now, go harvest your dead crops in Farmville!!) ;) lol
