My pups and I spent the day getting prepared for our road trip home. Running a few errands in the morning and then coming home to tell Bolo that he needs a B-A-T-H! He looks at me with those crooked eyes like he knows what I am saying. Hes a good boy with it tho. Sheba barked the whole time Bolo was in his bath. Its like she didn't know where we were. I told Bolo to stay while I went over to her to make her stop. Lets just say there was a soapy dog was standing on the tile when I got back, and she still didn't stop the barking.
This picture was a accident but I thought it was kinda cute.
I decided to make some deserts for out trip home. I really wont be-able to make anything when we get there because we are going to be arriving so late and the next morning is Christmas Eve with Mikes family. I saw cookies that I wanted to try on my favorite website (pintrest) so I decided to make those and the Raspberry Cheesecake Bits that I had made before. They were such a big hit that I at least know that they are going to be good. So I had written down the recipe for these cookies awhile ago and never fails, I lost it. So I looked up online Pin Wheel Cookies. There was a recipe that I found but it just wasn't the same one. Not thinking it was to different I decided to make it. Everything went fine so I put it in the fridge to chill overnight. Searching through some papers a little bit later of course, I can across the recipe from pintrest, and boy did it look a lot different. So i decided to make both recipes and see which was better. I had trouble getting the sprinkles to stick to the outside of the cookie log. So I didn't put them on. The pictures you see that inspires you always look so much better!
These are the ugly version of the picture recipe. And once again I don't like how they taste. I think I am going to see if Mike wants to bring any to class tomorrow because the guys will eat anything. Other then that I just might pitch them. Its almost like they aren't sweet enough. To bad I made 4 batches of them!
Tonight I help Mike study for his test. I just hope he does well so he doesn't have to to think about it on his vacation. Tomorrow is just the basic stuff that I need to do to get ready to go. Clean, laundry, pack. I have a long list of things that I cant forget. I just wish we would have not gone grocery shopping this past weekend. We bought way to much stuff that now we will have to pack with us.
I'm so excited!
