Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!
Because I spent the evening in the kitchen, baking up some Christmas goodies. I had got a head start last Saturday, grating my big "zucchini that got away" and baked up about 24 small loaves of zucchini bread.
Tonight I baked three kinds of cookies for my annual cookie exchange I have with my Huckleberry Book Club. I think this is the fourth year we have gathered together at Christmas to share our special cookies with each other.
There are five other women in my book group besides myself, so we bring a dozen cookies for each person. Here are the plates filled with spumoni cookies, red spritz and chocolate spritz. I can't wait to see what yummy goodies I get to bring home on Friday.
It is also a tradition around our house to make some special Christmas drink mixes. Tonight I made our special Christmas Tea mix, and Hot Chocolate Mix.
Tomorrow I will put a loaf of zucchini bread and a bag of drink mix in a bag, wrap it with ribbon, and share it with friends as a special Christmas treat.
The following pictures are for Inland Empire Girl. I had told her Z2 and I had some new "Christmas looks", so here is the before picture...
And here is the after...
As the snow continues to fall, take a moment to watch this video. It should help warm you up as Dean Martin and Shirley Jones celebrate Christmas in California!!
