Kitchen Happenings

December 19, 2012

I am officially on vacation until after the holidays.  I have a huge list of things to do, one of which is making cookies.  I pretty much have all my shopping done, but have a few projects to finish making. Today is baking day, and I am ready to indulge.  This cookie press belonged to my Grandmother, and I cherish it.  It makes the perfect spritz cookies every year.  I bought a new updated version of a press a few years back, but it does not compare to the older version.  The metal cookie cutters were mine from when I was younger and I use them every year.  It has always been a tradition to make cut out cookies for santa with my boys, and this year I am teaching my sons girlfriend how to carry the tradition on...... along with a three month old!  Wish us luck in the kitchen! 
 I will be traveling to Oklahoma for the weekend to see my family and celebrate with them, then back home to have Christmas at home with my boys,  well all but my oldest son and his family.  I don't by any means want to rush thru Christmas, but I am ready for spring to be here so his family can move closer.  El Paso is over a 17 hour drive, and Ft. Riley is only a little over 2 hours away.  Excited for spring! 

Snow is in the forecast later today and tonight, that can only mean one thing for me = cozy fire, glass of wine, and the smell of freshly baked cookies in the house! 

Have a great day.
