It is 12/12/12 today! Does this mean anything to you? Or, do you even care???lol. It is another day here, another day for baking & for spreading Christmas cheer!!!!
Do you have a particular day of the week you go grocery shopping? Do you shop weekly or daily? In the past it was a combination of sorts. These days it is a weekly shopping. Daniel used to come with me, after he got out of work, till he started working later. So, now every Wednesday is my food shopping day. I am sure you were not interested in that at all either,lol!
The snow is lacking here, seriously. I am being teased daily with flurries here and there and it is just not enough! I want feet, lot’s of feet of snow. It seems our snow is taking it’s sweet time getting here, it’s coming though, I am sure of it. I am just not being patient. It really is chilly and cold through the days and nights though.
Have you been baking or attending holiday or Christmas parties? We have one other Christmas party we are going to on the 23rd. Someone Daniel’s works with is having a nice dinner. I am baking of course, I can’t go somewhere empty handed, especially for a dinner party!
Okay, so I have another oatmeal-ish cookie for you today! I actually never made these ones before but they are absolutely delicious and are a worthy cookie too! I next to never make use of white chocolate either but it is so fitting in this cookie, but I am pretty sure you could use any kind of chocolate and have them come out amazing.
