Another week behind us, and not many days left in 2013. This week we didn't make any new dinner, breakfast or side-dish recipes. We did make some new cookie recipes, and we whipped up a few batches of hot chocolate to give to teachers and friends. I was invited to a cookie exchange and in preparation I made a 4 different types of cookies and prepared plates for some of our friends. They ate them and voted on taste, appearance, and best overall. 2 cookies were the favorites, Peppermint Snickerdoodles and Peppermint-filled Chocolate cookies. I ended up making the peppermint-filled ones for the cookie exchange, but don't ask me about exchange itself unless you want to hear a tale of flat tires and tow trucks!
All 5 of us are now on vacation for the remainder of the year! Hooray! This time together could lead to trying lots of new recipes, or just lazing around together and making old favorites. We will have to see how it pans out!
