Yesterday afternoon, I got home about 2 p.m. Thursday night I had stayed just four hours from home so it was an easy drive. When I got home, Vince helped me unpack the car . . you know Vince . . he has to get every crumb out of the car. I would take things out of the car as I need them and still be unpacking in six months . . which wouldn’t matter because it will probably be six months before we use that car again!
For dinner Vince grilled steaks and I baked potatoes and made a salad. Then . . I made cookies. I used the recipe in the Decorating Cookies book. It was delicious! I made the icing. There’s a good chance the author of the book will not be asking for pictures of my cookies for her next book.
They’re not terrible for my first try but they aren’t gorgeous either. I was thrilled that I found my cookie cutters! Nicole and I had bought 100 disposable icing bags and we were going to split them – 50 for her and 50 for me. Then I found some I could order from Amazon so I ordered those and told Nicole to keep all 100 that we bought. I figured with Prime, the bags would have arrived yesterday.
When I got ready to ice my cookies, I realized I had no icing bags. I went back to my Amazon account and they were still sitting in my cart. I guess I was pre-occupied by this sweet thing and forgot to punch the order button!
I used a ziplock baggie for my icing bag and it worked just fine.
Now I want to put up my Christmas tree. The only time I ever make decorated cookies is at Christmas so making them in October has me confused!
As much as I miss Chad, Nicole and Adalina, it’s good to be home . . with Vince, Speck, the chickens (who were scared of me!) and to sleep in my own bed.
