Happy Monday! Happy Halloween! I am still trying to get over the freak snow storm on Saturday. Lucky for me the week's temperatures are suppose to get up in the 50s and sunny. I don't have anything too exciting going on this week. I am in the office till Friday when I will be taking a little jaunt up to Albany for the day. I am hoping the warmer, sunnier days down here will make it up there. I recently ordered new work clothes...all of which are dresses and skirts. Not sure I was thinking clearly at the time. Even with tights I think my legs are going to freeze.
As for the cookies...Well, they taste good even though they look a little
In fact I recently signed up for the The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2011 put on by Love & Olive Oil and The Little Kitchen. You agree to bake 3 dozen cookies and send them out to three different bloggers. In return you will receive 3 different dozen cookies yourself. Great idea right? I cannot wait. You have till November 18th to sign up. I highly recommend it.
