--Frosted sugar cookies are my favorite treat during the holidays. I've always used my grandmother's recipe, and while the cookies turn out delicious, they take forever to make. I do not have forever this year. Luckily, I found two recipes that look easy and really yummy. The first is from my friend Susan at the most -- of every moment, and it also includes a frosting recipe. The second one, from Katrina's Kitchen is intriguing because the dough doesn't have to be refrigerated. Which means less time, which = bonus.
--Everything old will eventually be new again. Which is why I have such a hard time getting rid of clothes from my closet.
--Which reminds me. If you need a laugh, pull up old 80's music videos on You Tube. A few weeks ago my son was listening to a-ha, so I showed him their iconic "Take On Me" video. That led us down the rabbit hole, and two hours later we re-surfaced. Let's just say there were some REALLY bad videos back in the day. But it was "totally" entertaining.
--Last weekend was the annual Jingle Bell Run in Seattle, and this year C decided to join his brother and run the 5k. It was a rainy, windy day but we were all in a festive, holiday mood.
--One of my tasks this weekend is to wrap presents. While I enjoy gift giving, I really don't like the wrapping part. But if I did, I might try a few ideas from the HGTV List of 45 Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas. Some of the packages are works of art. My family is lucky if I slap a bow on the top.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend!
