Ah, December. I haven’t sent Christmas cards in six years now, I’m way behind on Christmas shopping, I’ve committed to baking six dozen cookies for two school functions, I need to send out invitations for my son’s birthday party by Wednesday, and I missed my ‘lunch duty’ at my daughter’s school last week… but I hit the 70K mark on Dead and Berried, and the end is in sight! (With my 1000 word a day formula, I’m hoping for next Friday… keep fingers crossed that all vomiting and otherwise infectious agents avoid my threshold for at least 12 days). Why next Friday, you ask? Because my kids are out of school for THREE WEEKS.
That’s right. Twenty-one days.
So, dinner chez MacInerney is meatloaf tonight. Mmmm. BUT I do have a fabulous caramel turtle cookie recipe that I will be making in bulk soon… I’ll share it here once I pull it out of the recipe file!
Happy Holidays. Time to break out the eggnog (and rum)!
