Thursday Thoughts on Saturday

Happy Christmas Eve & Christmas Weekend! Today we are hosting both families here so we're up early because there's lots to do: setting the table, making snack trays (cheese & crackers and veggies & dip), making the meal itself (marinating the lamb, blanching veggies, roasting veggies).

The past week was busy but not too busy. I finished baking holiday cookies. Do we need 10 kinds of cookies? Of course not. But somehow we just can't help ourselves. We'll give a lot of them away to family and friends and keep a few for ourselves. The 2016 Holiday Cookies:
Row #1: Apricot-Pecan-White Chocolate Biscotti, Peppermint Pinwheels
Row #2: Linzer Cookies, Triple Ginger, Cinnamon Spice Cut Outs
Row #3: Butter Spritz, Cherry Chocolate Hazelnut Bars, Pizzelles
Row #4: Butter Cut Outs, Chocolate Dipped Crescents

My favorites are the Linzers & Crescents - of course two very labor intensive, time consuming cookies! I also really like the Triple Ginger, Pizzelles, and Cinnamon Spice Cut Outs. I think those 5 will always be on the baking list.

Hope everyone has a happy holiday weekend!
