at work, that is. It felt strange to take them down before Christmas.
I took the 3 in the banquet rooms down Thursday because the Christmas parties are finished and the room will be decorated for a big New Year's Eve party next week (we hire a decorator to do that).
I am taking next week off, so I had to get it done. I did not want to leave it for others to do because they tend to just throw everything in a big heap in a box, and I like it done a certain way...getting pretty picky in my old age :)
I survived the cookie exchange. I actually didn't use either of the two I intended to give. I made choc/peanut butter drops and chocolate revel bars. One of the ladies told me today that her husband just loved the revel bars, so I felt pretty good.
I just finished making a dessert to take to my family gathering tomorrow. Now I just have to think of something to take to the inlaws on Sunday, make that, and I will be done baking for awhile.
I hope all of you have your gifts wrapped, your baking done and you are ready to enjoy the holiday weekend.
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
