(Incidentally, I am still waiting for someone to bring me a case of Prairie Berry Phat Hogg red, which would go perfect with the mulling spices...)
Speaking of waiting, as you can also see from the top picture of my goodies, I am still waiting for the last wall in the kitchen to be painted...but being the delicate flower I am, I can't possibly move the appliances by myself. BUT once again, I digress. What else is in the picture, crepes for dad, one of his favorite things, (not an altruistic move on my part, I'm hoping he''ll make crepes on Saturday and I can blog about it). Milk Chocolate Raspberry sticks for my mother. She's always on the lookout for the frosted round jelly circles (I don't know what they are called). I googled images for "frosted jelly circles" and it returned mostly pictures of those gel phone covers. (Such is the digital age we live in). If you know where I can find them. please please let me know.
So that's it for tonight. The real cooking fun begins tomorrow. We'll see where my ambition takes me. Good thing I'm a morning person.
