I am totally on target with Christmas shopping. How many people left to buy for on my list? What’s that? Nobody? ::insert maniacal laughter here:: Oh yes, that’s right. I’m DONE with my Christmas shopping!
Unfortunately, that’s the only thing I’m done with. I just picked up the pictures of Nicholas to go out in the Christmas cards that have yet to be addressed. I haven’t planned our Christmas Eve Feast of Seven Fishes menu yet, and most importantly, I haven’t started baking for the Cookie Care Packages that I send out. So while I may be totally and completely organized in one respect, all the rest of the aspects of the holidays are lagging far behind, far far behind.
I’ve designated this weekend as Operation Bake Up a Storm, so that means I need to figure out exactly WHAT I’m going to be making. I should also probably make a list of who I need to send the packages to, but I’m more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kinda gal.
One of my biggest problems is whittling down my list of what to include in the packages. So many recipes, so little time. I know I’m definitely making batches of both Chocolate and Peanut Butter No Bake Cookies, but beyond that, it’s anybody’s guess. So I’m turning to you guys… Whatcha baking for your holiday treats? C’mon, inspire me!
A year ago today… mmmm, delicious soup.
P.S. I’ve been trying to track down a lit-up wreath for the outside of the house. I saw it on a house a few blocks away, and yes, I’ve thought of asking them where they got it, but they’re never home when I stop by. When it’s not lit, it’s all white. Lit, it’s very twinkly and perfect for some unadorned spot on our house. If you’re familiar with the big snowman that Costco sold last year, it twinkles like that. Know who sells it? Clue me in. I’ve been everywhere and can’t find it!
