On Baking

I was a domestic goddess today (although I didn't clean -- by domestic, I mean, I sewed and baked). I have really enjoyed being "snowed in" this weekend and today I took advantage of the stormy weather to do some Christmas baking. I made some peanut butter blossoms, pumpkin chocolate chip breads and a batch of brownies (with peanut butter chips) are in the oven as I type this. My house smells fantastic and I had enough will power to only test out 2 cookies :-) And, my poor, old oven really stood up to the task!

I'm in pretty good shape for Christmas. I need to purchase a few pairs of kids pajama's and that is it. I need to insert snaps on my niece's dress as well as on another gift I have made. Most gifts are already wrapped as well. I think I will be done before Christmas Eve, which would be a first! I need to make a beer bread and dip for work, but that is simple and I can whip that together Tuesday morning. Then I need to make spinach and artichoke dip for Christmas Eve, and I have already purchased all that I need for that. I should be able to get it all done -- what did you get done this weekend?
