Winter Open House

I did it again!  I baked!  This time I used light brown sugar instead of dark brown sugar, and the cookies flattened out more.  And being the master baker that I am, they came out soft and, more importantly, not burnt!

Why you ask?  I would say to get over ***, but since I already have, that's not the reason.  I had promised to bake cookies for people throughout the winter because they were sick (in some cases, multiple times); but never had the opportunity to meet them.

However, I was invited to Michael's Open House last Friday and learned that many of the 'formerly sick' would be there!  A perfect opportunity!

See pictures from the Open House! [+/-]

For those who didn't receive cookies, I apologize, and instead provide you with some eye candy: a souvenir that Michael got for me from Hawaii.  You always know how to make a boy smile.  I got dibs on Mr. November.

I baked a cake tonight. No, really I did. It's not that good though.

Nice pics! I don't usually bake much, cooking is my thing. The last time I baked a cake it broke apart since I forgot to grease the pan. D'oh!

I'm in shock! I went to high school with that guy on the cover of your calendar. He's become something of a local celebrity since we graduated. He got cast in "Baywatch: Hawaii," even though I tried to watch the godawful show and never did see him or his name. Wow. Small world.

I didn't get any cookies. But I'll happily take the pictures in lieu. All mouth watering.

Aaron: I'd still like to try some of that.. oh, and the cake too.
Re: LargeTony... LOL! I'm not that desperate.. or am I?

Jon: Thanks!

Jennir: If this new career doesn't work out, I guess I can go into the mail-order cookie business.. that's really booming right?

iiltweet: raisins... yuck.

Riye/PatCH: It's all that extra 'lovin' I put into it.

Dennis!: Really? That's hot! Well, not as hot as Mr. November.

Dan: Just let me know when you're headed into the states.. I'm sure we can work something out.. :)
