This is a tray of homemade Christmas cookies. From top left, going clockwise... chocolate chip, hard-boiled egg cookies (bad name, great cookie!), oatmeal raisin, springerle, snickerdoodles, sugar cookies with sprinkles, peanut jam gems. In center, rugalach.
Here's the tree... complete with stockings and presents!
My dog Tasha, enjoying her new candy cane shaped chew stick. You can see her stocking on the floor, with her new toys sitting next to it. Yes, she's spoiled. I'm not going to deny it.
My completely unexpected Christmas present... the Magic Bullet! I'm totally obsessed with the informercial, so my mother decided to buy me one. I spent all day reading customer reviews on Amazon, and they're pretty much split down the middle. I'm going to try it out tomorrow and see for myself.
So, that's the highlight reel. Right now I'm looking forward to the rest of my week off. It's one of the teacher perks that I truly enjoy the most.
