Nice things about walking on a dark, chilly, wet night (when it's not actually raining):
  • Dragonbreath
  • No sweatbands required
  • Streetlights make everything sparkly!
  • That Halloweeny-evening feeling
  • Increased chance of frog sightings
Things that have run out in front of my car in the past few days:
  • Female pheasant with a death wish
  • Village cat
Things that were big and round in the sky this morning:
  • Gigantic shiny silver full moon hovering above the horizon ahead of me
  • Great glowing globe of fire hovering above the horizon behind me
Things I am thinking an awful lot about lately:
  • Peanut butter kiss cookies
  • Reindeer poop cookies
  • Creme-filled sandwich cookies
  • Iced sugar cookies in holiday cut-out shapes
  • Pumpkin-chocolate chip bar cookies
  • Fudge puddle cookies
  • Rice Krispie holly bar cookies
  • Almond paste sandwich cookies
  • Can you tell it's nearly Christmas cookie season??
It's all Martha Stewart's fault...I bought her November Thanksgiving issue of Living and this recipe for Triple Chocolate Pumpkin Pie nearly killed me just with the photos. And then this Baked Artichoke Hearts side dish delivered another blow. And then this advertisement for a cookie recipe that isn't even Martha's finished me off: Peanut Butter Blossoms.

I'm SO IN THE MOOD for turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy and stuffing and pumpkin pie with whipped cream and Christmas cookies and leftover turkey sandwiches and stuffing. And stuffing. And cookies. And pie. Mmmm...pie.

I think I'd better get walking.

Best & Brightest Birthday Wishes to davesanngel!

I know! I was nearly at the point of having to wipe drool off the magazine!


Our group of good friends here have just spent the last week looking at menus trying to decide just what we're going to eat for Thanksgiving. It is such a fun November obsession!

Baked artichoke hearts, yum!!

Don't they look SCRUMPTIOUS?

Pumpkin-chocolate chip bar cookies sound delicious.

They are fantabulous. If you want the recipe let me know. Easy peasy!

Yes, please :)

Can you tell it's nearly Christmas cookie season??

Ummm... err... no, not really...where was that again in your entry? :)

I have my BISCUIT baking all planned out for next month, with some lovely, scrumptious old recipes to post of childhood favourites. I can't wait. L-G thinks I'm nuts, but my shopping list is ready and I'm keen to get baking. It must be the darkness that does it, because in Oz I'd look out the window this time of the year and see blue skies and temperatures in the mid 30C and the pool beckoning. Bugger baking biscuits!

Pumpkin pie...I just can't see it. I think of pumpkin in soups and roasted with the Sunday lunch, but never as a sweet dish. I'm guessing it's something you need to have grown up with to appreciate.

Are you doing the big thanksgiving dinner again? That was so wonderful and I still think about that visit with fondness. It was my first and only Thanksgiving dinner and I was very impressed.

We are doing it, but the weekend before THanksgiving this year instead because Anders will be in Spain the last 2 weeks of the month.

If you like gingerbread, I don't think the leap to pumpkin pie is so pretty much tastes like soft gingerbread. YUUUMMMMM..

Biscuits in America aren't cookies at all, not sweet, they're more usually dinner rolls. It always takes me a second when someone says biscuits and means cookies even though I've read plenty of British and Australian fiction that mention them (squashed fly biscuits, especially). Silly language!

Yeah, I know about the biscuit/cookie thing. What you call a biscuit we call a scone! I was just teasing :)

Har! But for us scones are really SPECIFIC biscuits. :D

Thank you for the birthday wishes!

You're too sweet!



OMG! I've been making peanut butter blossoms every holiday season since I was a kid. I can't stand shortbread cookies so my mom had to come up with an alternative for me. PB blossoms it was... so good.
