Lunch and more cookies

My sister Gaby and her husband Richard drove up to Ithaca to have lunch with me. I had wanted to take them to Spicy Asian because I love that place, but it isn't open on Mondays. So we went to Taste of Thai Express. (Saigon Kitchen is also closed on Mondays) They got lost on the way up but luckily Taste of Thai Express is located on a main road so it isn't hard to find.

I invited B to join us as well and we had a pleasant meal with pleasant conversation.

I think I have made fewer cookies this Yule than I have in years. This is the first time in years I didn't make my Dwarf Bread. I only made cookies on the Solstice, and yesterday I finally made some gingerbread cookies. I had sort of promised to make a Frog cookie for Tanner and a Red Panda for Forrest. And I have! They are made and decorated. I hope they survive transportation.

I also made a batch of peanutbutter fudge, and a batch of hazelnut chocolate fudge, to take down to Mom.

But I am exhausted. And I have been all month. I hope I perk up and make more cookies next month. I certainly have all the ingredients. And I made way too much icing.

I love your cookies. They are absolutely adorable!
Thank you. They are not professional quality, but I'm quite pleased with my results.
