Happy Holidays !!!
I have been so busy at work and with the Holidays, that I haven't had a chance to check in. All my baking moments have been spent on cranberry orange breads, our celebratory fruit cake (like no other and extraordinary), Ambrosia macaroons, peanut butter fudge, gingerbread popcorn, apricot almond shortbread and shortbread with milk chocolate caramel.
My son was not going to come home from school ..so I whupped up a batch of his favorites, baked them up,and sent them off with his presents rushing all the way. We get a call Monday, and he has decided he will come home after all. So he waited for his care package, and then drove home from Santa Clara, CA to Woodburn, OR last night. I wonder if he will ever realize that I broke my neck to get that package sent to him on time, baked all his favs, payed extra postage for insurance and expedited delivery...and he drove it all back home..SIGH
On the lighter side, I got up last night and proceeded to smash my toes into the end of my treadmill. Not good..I know one is definitely FX'd,3 are black & blue, my foot is swelling..SIGH
So..finally (they all say, if you are still with me)..I WISH ALL OF YOU, THE VERY HAPPIEST OF HOLIDAYS!
You guys are the best!
