If you're up past your bedtime, raise your hand!

Got home at 10:40 p.m. from Social Circle, which was nice, even if too damn far away. (Helsingborg is a 45-50 minute drive, made longer by the rain/fog/drizzle/darkness). Good food from Nigella's recipes and dessert involved white chocolate, passionfruit seeds and raspberries. YUM. My project for the evening was to figure out what kind of cookies to bake on Sunday for the Christmas cookie exchange at the meeting on Tuesday. I'm about 80% decided. It was pretty easy to narrow down as the criteria was: fast, easy, fast

What I have to look forward to tomorrow:
  • Anders comes home!

  • I don't have to go or be ANYWHERE

Wait, did I mention that Anders comes home tomorrow?!!! :)
mood: chipper
music: King Crimson—Heartbeat


*hand raised*

By the way, when does Anders come home?

heh. I was trying not to be TOO ridiculous. Guessing I failed miserably. LOL!

Desser sounds lovely! So, what did you choose for cookies? Glad to hear that Anders comes home tomorrow. :)

It's a Martha Stewart rolled icebox cookie, it looks like the Target logo with vanilla and chocolate layers. You just make the dough, roll it up together, slice and bake. The name is escaping me at the moment, not surprising as I'm completely braindead...and off to bed. :)

I think they're called pinwheels?

yes, they're like pinwheels, except that Martha had to be perfect and do them as "bullseye targets" with matched up edges :)

I think the recipe is basically the same as this one, but you just layer and roll instead of messing about with rulers and strips.

*raises hand* I have 953 words to write before I can go to bed. Yet I'm not writing them. I HATE Nano at this moment. I hate my character and I hate stupid centaurs that are supposed to be unicorns.

Those cookies sound good. I need to figure out a couple of more types of cookies for my Christmas tins (so far I have blonde brownies, Bavairan Christmas bars, fudge and these weird chocolate cookies wrapped in bites of Snickers figured out. I think I just need one more that doesn't involve any nuts or chocolate). Maybe raspberry oatmeal bars. That's more than you wanted to know, isn't it?

do this. trust me:

Rice Krispie Holly Bars
from Elizabeth Slaughter-Ek
1 bag of large marshmallows (280 grams or 1/2 lb)
1/4 cup butter
6 cups Rice Krispies
1 tsp green food coloring (or more)
1/2 cup cinnamon red hots (2 oz.)

Put marshmallows and butter in a large microwave-safe mixing bowl. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Keep an eye on the bowl and remove earlier if marshmallows get to close to the top of the microwave. Remove and stir the marshmallows lightly. Add food coloring and stir. Microwave on high for 1.5 minutes. Remove from microwave, add Rice Krispies, and red-hots, stir until evenly distributed.

Flatten onto a greased cookie sheet. Let cool and cut into squares.

That would be good. I like fast and easy. Do they have red hots and rice crispies here? I never have looked for them.

Rice Krispies I find all over, try Konsum. Red-hots I've never seen, but then I haven't been looking.

no :( sorry, that was dumb. Well, they might have them at the American Store, but I forgot you're in Kiruna and don't have one. I could mail you some, if you send me your address. They do have rice krispies in the regular grocery stores, though, and even marshmallows sometimes on the "American" shelf.
