More Christmas Baking

Even though my peanut butter blossoms with the stripped mint kisses were pretty, to me (since I hate mint) they just weren't quite as good as the ones with chocolate so had to make some more. Michelle has eaten lots of them already! 

And I still had a few zucchini left and made some bread with them.

I picked a few more tiny heads of broccoli in the garden and was very pleased to see that a few of the cabbage really are heading up good. We had record temperatures here yesterday when we hit 77 F.  I picked a few weeds, fed my animals and am now in the process of making yogurt since I am almost out of that and I am out of ranch dressing which takes yogurt to make. I hope all your Christmas baking/cooking is going well.


  1. I don't bake but I do Blog-Hop spreading Holiday cheer.
    Merry Christmas Becky!
    Your Friend, m.

  2. Merry Christmas Mark! You can spread cheer to me any day :)

  3. Nummers!! My oldest daughter has been baking up a storm and I'm hoping she will be bringing some with her when she and her husband and my granddaughter come for New Years! I've been very lazy this year and haven't baked a thing! Oh well, my waistline will be grateful at least!
    Have a most excellent Christmas Becky!

  4. Merry Christmas... I have been living in my kitchen this week bakin up a storm, cookies, granola cereal, makin bark & the hm egg nog, ice cream.

  5. We don't eat much sweet stuff in our household these days, because of Jane's diabetes, so baking is a relatively rare occurence. Off to pick up our turkey from the butchers in a minute though...
    Have a wonderful Christmas! Will either of your boys be home for it?

  6. Nope, John will we working on Christmas day so they will delay their Christmas until the 26th and I will be skyping with them so I can see my grandson open all the presents we sent him.
    My oldest will be going to his girlfriend in NC for Christmas. He would come here but doesn't have enough leave time to make two trips.

  7. 77F seems to be warmer than usual in your place?
    Anyway, it's lucky for your vegetables to grow in warm temperature.
    Your Christmas sweets are so attractive!
    I wish you and your family a merry Christmas!

  8. It all looks good Becky! Merry Christmas!

  9. 77 F. is very warm for us in Dec. We should be sitting in the 50's during the day and just under freezing at night.
    Merry Christmas everyone!

  10. Merry Christmas Becky, that bread sure looks good, just needs some butter and jam.
