OH. MY. GOODNESS. I just realized I haven't posted anything for ten days. TEN. That's awful.

In my defense, it's been a crazy few days, filled with all manner of activities, most notably my travels to Milwaukee for family Christmas. I'm still in Milwaukee, as a matter of fact.

I am a loser and didn't take very many pictures from the trip, but I will post the ones I did take soon. It's kind of a pain in the arse to get them all transferred to my computer and then upload them, and I'm not in the mood for that kind of nonsense right now.

I made some potato soup and some salted caramel chocolate chip cookies yesterday. And they were delicious, if I do say so myself. I'll share the recipes soon, too. I've been making the potato soup for over a year, but this was only my second time making the cookies. They're sort of time and work intensive, so you have to be prepared for that, but they're still fun. My goofy brother in law thought it would be hilarious to trick everybody and stick a couple pieces of spearmint gum into one of the cookies, and then my brother ended up eating it and was all confused about how minty it was. Maybe you had to be there, but we all thought it was hilarious.

Also, I am the Uno master, because I totally won all the games of it. Ergo, I am the awesomest.

C&J have left now, and I have a million and one things to do today, considering that it's not a work vacation day for me. I need to focus, because I have a lot to get done but my nephews are here, and they're really distracting in all the best ways.

Merry Christmas to everybody. :)

  1. OMG those cookies sound amazing!! Salted caramel is like, the best thing. And please post the soup recipe... I love soup!! Merry Christmas!

  2. It's a busy time of year, I don't think anyone is going to reprimand you for not posting ;)

  3. salted caramel chocolate chip cookies! I look forward to that recipe.

  4. Glad your back! I recently found your blog and was hoping you would continue to update. I hope you don't mind but I am planning to feature you as one of my top 3 bloggers on my new blog post next week. I am working on the post now. It should be up next Tuesday. I will let you know.

  5. I've been on an unintentional blog hiatus as well.
    I feel so incomplete! Glad I'm not the only one!

  6. Um - can I just say as a first-hand participant in this affair, said cookies and soup were both amazing. Miss having my sister close by to make me cookies and soup on a regular basis, but loved the holiday treat! Love you sis :-)

  7. Glad you're back!! I have been kind of on a hiatus. I'm trying to get back in the groove of things


I'd love to know what you think! Leave me a comment - it will make my day!
