Tis the Season

It is that time of year, which means Miss Richfield 1981 and Christmas cookies.

Cheri has organized an outing with Steve and I for the last couple of years. She and her friend Bob set up dinner out at the Gay 9o's, and then head to the Illusion Theater for the show.

This year Amy and her husband joined us. After the show we had cocktails and appetizers at Bob's condo. Good food and great views!

Thanks Cheri and Bob! It was great fun.

Now I must confess that this year's cookie is brought to you by way of Debbie's Doings.

I made them this year and they were yummy. Absolutely delicious!

You may be wondering why a picture of only one cookie. Well of the 50 something cookies the recipe makes, this is the only one left.

I have to admit I had a little disaster with the white chocolate. I tried to melt the chocolate in the microwave, and it seized. Apparently white chocolate is harder to melt than other chocolates.

Any one know what true love is? Going out on a Minnesota night to get replacement chocolate.

Thanks, Steve!

What a fun night! Thanks for bringing your camera, Nathan. (Who knew Miss Richfield would be that tall?!)

So glad to hear that you had fun!
I love those cookies and I've made them before they are so yummy. I had the same issue with my white chocolate so I had to drizzle it on instead.
Kudos to Steve you didn't have to do that. Yeah!
