A bit of baking ~ Dog Pile
She insisted on a few of our favorites. One is a recipe called "Angel Cookies" but we use it for our "cut out" recipe every year (butter frosting).
I actually found it reading a book I borrowed from the library many years ago. I enjoy reading Christmas related books, especially during summer (strange I know), and had picked it off the shelf on a whim. I don't recall if the story was really good or not, but the cookie recipe is a "keeper." We use organic flour, butter etc. and our homemade vanilla.
Son arrived home safely. I had to laugh when I took a peek in his room. All three dogs were in there, and two on the bed with him. Sadie was on the floor "guarding" him so he can sleep in and rest up from all that traveling. Alias hasn't left his side. I'm pretty sure the dogs will be piled up on his bed all week long.
