Oops, missed another day! :) Sundays are always kind of crazy and I totally forgot to blog until I was snuggling down to sleep last night. Oh well.
Suddenly, I'm starting to panic . . . we are pretty much finished shopping for our kids and much of the extended family, but I need to get some presents for my hubby! Thankfully he has an Amazon wish list with lots of things to choose from. :)
It also suddenly hit me tonight that I haven't made one single batch of Christmas cookies yet. Every year, the kids and I have a tradition of making sugar cookies. I can't miss that!!! I sat down and made a list of all the goodies I want to make . . . homemade hot chocolate mix, chex mix, several kinds of cookies, fudge, candy . . . not so good for the diet, but some of it is to share, and much can be frozen, also. :) Since we are down to less than 2 weeks till Christmas, I'd better get cooking!! I meant to have some of those goodies made before Jim's parents came, but I wasn't organized enough and all I ended up making was some chocolate chip cookies. Yummy, but not Christmas cookies exactly!
So, one of my projects for tomorrow is to do some baking. Or first, to make sure I actually have enough ingredients to bake. I know that several of my projects are going to require more butter, sugar, and other stuff than I have on hand. So I might be taking a trip to the store tomorrow. :)
How about you guys? Do you have special Christmas baking traditions? Recipes to share?
