baking

12.10.2012



we came, we baked, we conquered ;) 
not really but we did have an awesome weekend!
my sister, future mother in law, and fiance's aunt and cousin decided that it was time for a day of massive amounts of baking, so that is exactly what we did. 
after several sticks of butter, sugar, and flour. we made 7 varieties of cookies! my favorite being the peanut butter blossoms and the melting moments
this was all going on while outside was finally getting it's white blanket for the season.
we hadn't gotten any snow yet in Minnesota (very odd! it was 60 degrees last monday, something that never happens in decemeber!) and now we got 8-9 inches of snow all in one day. lovely! 

now with a little weekend updated:
other then baking, my time was spent doing homework ( what is new i know?) i am realizing that finals week in grad school is a little more time consuming then undergrad and you can't quiet hang out with your friends as often but that is okay! i get a break in a couple weeks right- (cannot wait until next friday)?! then hopefully my life will get a little more interesting and my social life will regain strength once again.

what did you do this weekend?  what are some of your favorite christmas cookies?
linking up!
