Hi readers! I don’t have a recipe post for you today. I do, however, have a good reason for not getting one to you. You see, this weekend I got to visit with a dear friend from Chicago who I hadn’t seen in far too long. We spent the weekend dancing, laughing, and catching up, and it was lovely! And on Sunday night, Mike and I had our friends over for a night of holiday fun, which included: taking pics of me, Mike and the baby cat for our xmas card this year; watching “Elf” (“SANTAAA! I know him! I know him!”); and enjoying my first batch of assorted Christmas cookies. I was simply having too much fun to pull anything together for a legit post.
I’ll give you a little pictoral overview of all those events, but rest assured you’ll see some of these images again since posts to come this week include:
- Holiday cookie recipes: Part I
- DIY Holiday decorations
- …and more! : )
So without further ado, enjoy these festive snapshots:
The Midtown Global Market is a wonderful place to eat and shop in Minneapolis, and this year it was host to the No Coast Craft o Rama! We had so much fun looking at all the neat local, handmade work!
We ate at a yummy Indian restaurant down the street from my apartment. I think I was too hungry to actually take a picture before we finished eating, but it was delicious, I promise.
We then went to my friend Eli’s for a “lesbianic cake party”, a tradition I have with some of my queer friends that involves watching films about lesbians and eating baked goods he makes for us. He’s a *wonderful* vegan baker. See?
And Sunday was loads of Christmas decorating, cookie baking, and general merriment. <3
I’m excited to do a tutorial on making your own natural food xmas decorations, such as these orange/clove cuties:
I’m also excited to share recipes from my first weekend of baking:
And, last but not least, I’ll be super stoked to show you our final Christmas card. For now, here’s a sneak peak from the photo shoot:
Hope you had a great weekend too!
