A day late for Valentines cookies but at least we got them done the same weekend. I actually made the dough on Saturday so technically they did start on Valentines Day. Declan was my assistant as usual-Grace is only interested in the final product.
He helped with the cookie cutters and used the scraps to make little cookie people that we baked up too. Not sure if he plans on eating them or playing with them.
I threw in some stars too-really need to get some more cookie cutters.
OK, so they are not the prettiest cookies but they taste better than they look. I was also supposed to make some half milk/half white chocolate chip cookies but there is no more room in the cookie jar right now.
Sunday night now also means its time for The Amazing Race again. We take it seriously at work. Pierre, one of our operating tech's, puts on a big party at the beginning so we can pick our teams and in the end there is a trophy and prizes for the winner. Every time, he has a more elaborate game worked out for picking your team and our editing equipment is put to good use. This time it was a series of plane logos cut with clips from Airplane. You had to identify the airline by the tail logo and then pick a travel brochure and your team was pasted onto the back page. I got the team I wanted-Mel and Mike-the actor son and gay father. Wish me luck. I have won this twice in the past. At the party thrown at the end of the race you get a trophy and everyone else who played has to give you a travel related gift. My team came in 4th tonight and seem like they aren't idiots so I think they might last a while but you never know. One bad taxi driver or flight and you are eliminated from the race.
