So, today I...

...managed to finally start making some holiday yummies.

Rolo Pretzel M&M thingies.  
I've seen these called Reindeer Bellybuttons, among other things, but we just call them delish! 
Cake Batter Fudge
Dark Chocolate Fudge
 M&M Sugar Cookies
I think I should have put more M&Ms in there.  Actually, I should have mixed them into the batter, instead of just pressing a few on top.
Before:
After:



In between, I took my sweet neighbor, Jean, to the ear doctor to get her hearing aid checked out.  I came home, made dinner, and then whipped up the sugar cookies after dinner.  I've got a hair appointment tonight, so my girlfriend (who owns the salon) will be getting a big tin filled with an assortment of all these goodies. 

I'll start the "real" baking tomorrow.  At least that's the plan.  Secretly, I'm hoping to get that much-anticipated phone call asking me to take Monkey for the day!

Holy cow how did you get that all done. I managed to make dough for one cookie, make those $#*%^ peanut butter balls, make the chex mix and...yep that exhausted me. Sigh so many cookies so little time.
