A sweet tradition

The empty shelves in the grocery store baking aisle? My fault.

Once a year every December, my kitchen becomes the sweetest, warmest, most popular place around. This year was no exception as a few friends and I got together for a day of serious Christmas baking.  Everyone brought ingredients for a few of their favorite treats to make together.  It's a rough job, let me tell you!  Not only do we have to sample everything for quality control purposes, but we share lunch, spend hours chatting and listen to Christmas music.  Oh, and we slave over two hot stoves.  But we buckled down and got it done in one afternoon.

My mister and his little buddy hung out and watched football while we baked.
Our work filled an eight foot long table, making our next job dividing up the bounty.  But now we all have plates and plates of Christmas goodies to share with our neighbors and guests over the season.  And maybe a little for ourselves, too.
