Yesterday I finally went grocery shopping and in my travels, decided to get some supplies for some Christmas cookies I was going to attempt.
I think I cleaned out the baking isle of Publix lol. Well I first attempted a no-bake smores cookies that started out with 2 cups of peanut butter, 1.5 sticks of butter, and 5 (yes FIVE) cups of powdered sugar. To say the least, there was no where near enough liquid to wet 5 cups of sugar. Those ended in the trash.
My next cookie attempt actually was successful--chocolate cookie sandwiches:
This is the recipe I used from the Food Network. I really like this cookie but the hubs thinks they are too rich. The marshmallow calms down the chocolatey flavor in my opinion and maybe only being able to eat one is a blessing in disguise.
Lastly, my nails are finally matching the Holiday season. I painted my nails with last year's OPI Dear Santa. It's a very red polish with the tiniest, little glitter flecks. I am really digging this polish, it almost looks like red foil when the light hits it.
We are off to the hub's dads house tonight for dinner to celebrate the father in law's birthday. I have to admit, I'm really digging this no work thing. :-) I caught up on TV, painted my nails, did a little scrapbooking, and all in my yoga pants & hoodie. I'm def taking advantage.
Christmas is right around the corner---I can't believe it! Is all of your shopping done?? Mine is!
