Year 55

I did a LITTLE baking the past few days. I wanted to make my mother's anise crescent cookies for my brother and sister-in-law. This is year 55 for the cookies in our family. My mom started making them in 1953. I want to carry on the tradition with my grandchildren, but I did this batch by myself because of time restraints. Please don't tell 'em.

The tree is decorated, I made no-bake cookies (they aren't cookies!) and some Chex Mix, and a batch of English toffee. I'm in the mood. Tomorrow I will shop!

Notice how easily I slip into food blogging? I should at least be sketching this stuff!
