I hope your weekend has been treating you well! We have been busy, but in a fun way around here. As I mentioned before, Friday night was Josh/Mandi/Bryan’s company Christmas/Holiday party. LUCKILY, it warmed up a bit in Charleston, so Mandi and I didn’t feel too much like ice cubes in our dresses. A couple pictures, Me & Mandi:
Saturday morning I woke up early to start in on baking cookies for my Mom & Dad’s holiday party. I made thumbprints (for the first time), tried a new double chocolate chip recipe and made my old favorites, big oatmeal chocolate chip.
First up, I made the thumbprints. I followed this recipe, but added the jam prior to baking.
Next, I made the double chocolate chip cookies using these chips (LOVE these things- thanks for finding them Mandi :) :))
And this recipe from Renee:
And my big oatmeal chocolate chunkers:
I hope they do well at the party! Aside from baking, Saturday was spent at the gym and visiting with friends. We headed up to my parents Saturday night for dinner and to drop off the goods. A couple pictures, my parents:
Couple other items of note:
2. A BIG thank you to Katie from Lil Veggie Patch. She was my secret blogger and made me the MOST amazing vegan pumpkin chocolate chip bars. Josh and I must have devoured half of them in just a few days! I can’t wait to make her recipe so Josh and I can keep on enjoying them!
Not sure what we’re up to today other than football. What are you doing?
