Getting out...

my jam thumbprints from ina garten's recipe... yum...coconut!

plus a little jam...i used cherry, raspberry, and apricot. i don't usually care for apricots but the jam works great in these cookies.

all toasty warm out of the oven...so pretty for christmas too

at this point in the week, after being cooped up together for several days, we are all feeling a little cabin fever. you can go outside for only so long and then it's too cold. little bob was working on the 40th project of the day and didn't really want to smile anymore. we're working on snowflakes...

the biscotti were dipped... everything's better with chocolate!

my balls were dipped ... tee hee... the very first time i made these was hysterical. the recipe calls for you to use a toothpick and dip them into chocolate leaving a small round spot of peanut butter showing. well that little round spot of peanut butter had a hole in it from the toothpick and they ended up looking like penis heads. then my solutions was to pour mor chocolate on top so then there was a little nipple on top of each and they turned into breats... now i just throw them in and cover them all up. works so much better.

my little boxes of goodies for the neighbors...

these boxes are too cute. i found them marked down at the craft store...they are martha stewart christmas boxes. i have extra so am going to use them for valentines day...

my fridge getting full with treat boxes...notice the tonic water in the back..it's almost gone...must get to store today to replenish supply... my "emergency kit" for the storm tonight!


thankfully, we are getting out today... visit with family, a little lunch, a little shopping, a little walk to deliver goodies, mabye a geocache or two. all before the next storm heads in later today.
can't believe that Christmas is 5 days! this year has just flown by...

have a great weekend whatever you are up too!
