    Well... in between caring for the chooks, tending the new geckos, trying to take care of a pregger hedgehog, and dealing with family drama, I'll be making -

    Potato Candy
    Peanut butter balls
    Coconut balls
    Yeast Rolls (as always)
    Gingerbread house
    Sugar cookies (as always)
    Cherries in the Snow
    Pina Colada cake
    Fantasy Fudge
    Coconut Pie

    Aaaaand maybe some peanut brittle.

    So, what're you guys making this stressmass? [​IMG]

    We have a 4 hours drive before we reach our Christmas destination for this year.... so by the looks of things I'll get out of having to make anything!

    I have made some blown egg decorations to take to the family.. that counts as making something! Right!?! [​IMG]

    I am also considering making some gingerbread men to come along for the journey... just so I have something edible to contribute!

    Quote:Of course it does! I've wanted to make some myself... just never got around to doing it. This year was taken up making chicken feather ornaments to go on next years "country tree" [​IMG]

    Picking up a broasted chicken from the store. I haven't processed any of my own in a while and don't feel like cooking. So we will have to support the "big" producers for once [​IMG]

    I'm making:

    A Wookiee stocking for my bf
    Butterfinger cookies for my dad (though the bf will likely steal some of those too)
    Banana rum cake
    Chocolate linder cookies
    Mushroom black bean tortilla casserole (this will probably be Christmas eve dinner)
    Christmas dinner: honey glazed ham, cheesy scalloped potatoes, fresh green beans, homemade dinner rolls

    And whatever else gets requested. Might be banana pudding, might be chocolate delight, not sure just yet.

    What am I making? An effort to get through the holidays!

    Seriously, I bought all the ingredients to make our family's tradiational Christmas shortbread cookies that everyone I know has been asking for. Here it is less than a week before Christmas - no cookies, not even the tree up yet! We have a few decorations up outside, but most in boxes. It's just coming tooooo fast!
