  1. Finally got all the chocolates done. I have 15-12 piece boxes filled, plus extra if I forgot anyone. Espresso Pecan Dark Hazelnut Salted Caramel Passion Fruit Peanut Butter Peppermint
  2. Quick birthday cake for my moms friend. Shooting for a winter, snow drift theme since it’s December.
  3. This year it will be lasagne, salad, garlic bread and tiramisu or a yule log. I put my foot down for Thanksgiving and made other people do some of the work. I'll have to make the lasagne and dessert, but the rest is up for grabs. We decided to have a nice quiet Christmas Eve dinner for just me, my mom, my cousin and my dad. I'm looking at a ribeye roast, my aunt's au gratin potatoes and not sure what else yet. This way the chaos of my prima Donna cousin and the out of control grandkids of my other cousin can be whatever it is. We can be civilized the night before. I'm trying to get chocolates done, along with a few other gifts. Cocoa Bomb shells are done, just need the cocoa mix and marshmallows made. I need to get two boxes in the mail to CA in the next week. The decorations are almost all up, and we have one trip to Orlando to see Mark Tremonti sing Christmas, then three days later to Birmingham to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra. I'll be glad when it's over 😵‍💫, I'm already tired.

    Thanksgiving (US) 2023

    At our house as usual. But I made other people do some of the work. Turkey, cornbread dressing, Hasselback sweet potatoes, my grandmothers cranberry relish, my aunt’s fried okra/squash combo, Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes. I made gravy from ATK no drippings gravy. Was really tasty. Dessert was almond torte with cherry compote and crispy almonds. No one really likes pumpkin here 🤷‍♀️.

    Our last hurrah for the summer. Supposed to drop to 28F in a couple of nights. Got the Ooni out and made pizza with pesto, castelvetrano olives, artichoke hearts. Topped with burrata and arugula and basil with lemony dressing. So good!

    Dinner 2023

    Spanakopita, didn’t get a photo before diving in 🤷‍♀️. Had a lot of spinach to use up.
  10. Breast Cancer Awareness Cookies. My mom wanted me to make them so she could give them to the people at the cancer center here.
  11. Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies. Part rye flour, rye whiskey, lots of vanilla, toasted pecans and some sea salt. Tried Aldi chocolate chunks. Tasty!
