'Twas a week before Christmas,
And all through the place,
Tara was baking cookies
(And not stuffing her face)

Ahem. Sorry, it got stuck in my head earlier and I couldn't get it out. Seriously, I baked five dozen cookies today. And this was after I found out that my team isn't doing a cookie swap tomorrow. So why did I bake so many? I'll take a dozen or two to my folks and the rest to work with me on Monday. There's nothing like cookies to make them glad I'm back. I am saving one dozen peanut butter cup cookies for myself.

Whether or not I attend tomorrow's holiday lunch depends on the weather. I already contributed money to a teammate's baked beans, so it's not like anyone's expecting anything else from me. There's supposed to be a mixed-precipitation storm tomorrow afternoon, but it should be after lunch. I'll probably check both WOWT and KETV, just to see if there's some sort of consensus.

Have I mentioned that when it comes to food, I sometimes have all the self-control of a pack of hyenas? Amazingly, I haven't had any of the cookies I baked today and only two of the ones I baked yesterday.

I did remember to call Bobby today and wish him a happy birthday. I can't believe he's 28 already.

I did work on Mater before and between batches. I don't think I'll get him done this week. Maybe next.

mmmmm peanut butter cup cookies!

I'm doing some baking tomorrow night (for local friends/choir people) and the majority of it Mon/Tue to take with me to the family. I can't wait to try some of the new recipes I found (toffee-studded snickerdoodles, chocolate-chip shortbread, and more!) even though I know come Wednesday, I'll be a flour-dusted heap of exhaustion! :)

*drools* Those both sound really, really good.

Exhausted but with lots of yummies! I feel like the refrigerator dough I used was kinda cheating, but I don't have a mixer at my place. I might actually bake cookies or a cake at Mom and Dad's over Christmas.

Good luck and have fun with your baking!
