The calendar is ending, but it is just going to roll over, not end the world

I just love ironing so much, what can I say

I decided to take the Chief's advice. I have Christmas carols playing on the TV, the cake is in the oven and the cream cheese and butter are softening for the frosting. All the holly leaves are done and in the fridge. Even the red royal frosting for the berries is waiting to go on the cake. Oh yes, one more thing. The coconut has been dyed green. I have to get down my cake dish and wash it. By the time the cake has cooled down enough, it should be around eight or nine tonight when the cake is finished. Tomorrow is cookie baking. They are all made and formed and in the freezer. But should I thaw them out first before I bake them, or just put them in the oven frozen?

My goodness, I am so organized. What is wrong with me?

You can put the cookies in the oven frozen, just watch them carefully. That's how Shrek used to bake them when he worked in the grocery bakery.

Oh, my

I've never seen such a thing and I hope I never do. Looks dangerous. I've heard that we have a shortage of bees and now I know why. They are all in your chicken coop.
Best of luck.

I'm getting ready to make German springerle cookies for the first time. They're DH's favorite Christmas cookie from childhood. I've never made them before because his mother's recipe says to beat the eggs for 20 minutes, then add sugar and beat for another 30 minutes He gave me a Kitchen-Aid mixer last year for Christmas, so no more excuses Should be interesting.
