Mostly just a quick post today. I go into work in just a bit and then, I’ll be working every day (minus the weekends, of course) until Christmas Eve. I was off the first three days of this week but can’t even tell you what I was doing, maybe Christmas shopping? A little. Cleaning? A very little bit. Cooking? I did make one batch of *okay* Christmas cookies. Picking up the camera? Not really. Shoulda/Woulda/Coulda kind of week I suppose. So no pictures for this post.
No snow for us either. Been a bit chilly but no ice/rain/snow or sleet. Just cloudy and blah though the sun is out today.
A Tiny Tip Since It’s Thursday
I’m the use the whole roll of tape almost just to wrap a gift type of person. So no surprise when I ran out of tape this week. If you need to buy scotch tape, don’t pick up the single roll by the wrapping paper (if say you’re in Walgreens because it’s the closest place to you and you’re in a hurry). Go back into the office supply section and get the 3 rolls packaged together, better price and not as crowded.
Other Random Stuff
Wrote a post over on Chit Chat With Jean. Plan to switch over there on Jan 1. It’s still a work in progress at this point. Looking for a good word press tutorial site if anyone has recommendations?
The cookies I made were mint surprise cookies. Started out thinking I’d use a recipe in an old Southern Living Christmas cook book but the recipe looked off to me. Ever heard of a cookie recipe that didn’t call for eggs or baking soda or baking powder? Wasn’t quite brave enough to try it so switched over and used this recipe from Mr. Food instead.
Staying on the food theme, I also winged it with some homemade minestrone soup one night using this recipe as a guide. A surprising hit with my picky crew!
Better go get ready for work now. It’s candy cane/wear red & white day. No idea what to do with that one.
