Well Good Morning!
I'm off to a later than normal start today - I slept until 7:30!!! I was up around 5 a.m. with Tyg who wanted to go out (after letting me watch him eat a little bit - lol) and I wasn't sure I would get back to sleep, but the next thing I knew it was 7:30. So, I'm a bit groggy still only having had about 1/4 cup of coffee so far. It's a chilly morn here (23) and our snow should start in a little bit...and go on all the rest of the day and night.
More baking was accomplished yesterday. another batch of those yummy pecans and also a batch of the roasted almonds tossed with EVOO, rosemary and garlic. And I made another batch of cookies. These are the Italian Sesame Seed cookies flavored with anise (the Chinese version of sesame cookies is very similar but flavored with almond extract). They really are just like a butter cookie rolled in sesame cookies. They are good, but the anise flavor is not strong enough for moi - next time I would add more (unless with flavor increases as they sit a day or two).
I have butter out to soften so that today I can make a batch of molasses cookies and a batch of sand tarts (cut out). The sand tarts take a bit of time - rolling out the dough, cutting it out and decorating them, but they are some of my favorite cookies. I think once those two batches are baked, that will be enough of a variety to share with everyone.
Yesterday saw me finish the heel flap and turn the heel on the first YinYang Kitty Sock for Mailing.
