I went to a Cookie Exchange today.
I've never been to one before.
My Cooking Club buddy Mari hosts a ginormous cookie exchange every year.
We were to bring 8 dozen cookies to the exchange.
One dozen for people to taste right away.
One dozen was going to the St. Jude House in Crown Point for Abused Women.
I think that is a great idea.
The other six dozen cookies each of us brought were divvied out amongst us.
Oh, this is what Aaron busied himself doing while I was baking cookies today.
This is our cat Boo.
She is evil.
Her nick name is Death Stub.
Steven King has called several times wanting to do a movie about her.
Here are the cookies I brought. Giada's Dried Cherry and Almond Cookies with Vanilla Icing. I heard they were good....I don't know first hand.
Mari awards gift cards to the 'best recipe' and the 'best presentation'
Can you stand it!? Those little snowmen having a camp fire? These were smores cookies.
Too stinking cute.
Hands down the 'presentation' winner.
I've never seen so many cookies in my life.
I didn't even touch one!
I have no idea where this resolve is coming from.
It didn't bother me one bit to be in this room.
This is what I'm talking about.
A fun, talented, generous bunch of gals.
Thanks for a fun afternoon Mari!
I had quite a few errands to run after the cookie exchange. One of them was to get gas.
Notice the sign on the door.
"Now hiring cashier"
Notice the bullet hole on the door.
Is that why they are hiring a new cashier!?
That's a little scary isn't it?
The following four photos are a game for you. Actually, two games.
The first game is 'Find the Inflatables'
and the second...
Do you remember Sesame Street?
Do you remember the game "Three of these things belong together, three of these things are kinda the same.....
Can you guess which one just doesn't belong here?
Now it's time to play our game...time to play our game!
Did you guess?
