George’s 15 Minutes of Fame

I’m guessing that from a male perspective, of all the ways a person might attain celebrity, this would be at the top of their wish list…

Merry Christmas!

It’s been crazy busy at work the past couple of weeks, but I’m finally caught up for awhile, and preparations for our Christmas Eve gathering are now in full swing.

I spent yesterday with this bowl of cookie dough. Believe it or not, that bowl holds enough dough to keep me busy for 8 hours. It’s an old German recipe, and it’s difficult to work with, but it makes the most amazing pillow-soft melt-in-your-mouth cut-out cookies you’ve ever tasted.

This before picture of the cookie project is all I’ve got. In an attempt to create gold frosting I experimented with some food coloring, and the bulk of the cookies look like they’re covered with French’s mustard. So I won’t be sharing any after pictures for fear they’ll end up on a website that is the cookie equivalent of Cake Wrecks.

I’m going to blame it on my Twisted Transistor state of mind. I was too lazy to transfer my Christmas music to my Zen, so instead of Bing Crosby and Burl Ives, I did my baking, wearing an apron over pink flannel PJ’s, while listening to Korn. By the end of the day I’m pretty sure I looked like a deranged Energizer rabbit covered in flour and bright yellow frosting.

This afternoon will be spent making hundreds of meatballs which will simmer in a sauce of pineapple juice, green peppers, sugar and white wine vinegar.

But, before I go, I’m going to give you the link to Santa Sez again, in case you lost it. When you’ve had enough of the lunacy and ugly sweaters that come with the holidays, you can have Santa knock the tree over for you.

Santa Sez

I wish you all the Happiest of Holidays!
