We are well into our Christmas vacation from school here at our house.  A much needed break for all of us, I think.  Celebrating the birth of Christ and reflecting on Him as the Greatest Gift of all.  We’ll be making Christmas cookies this week.  I know we’ll make cut out and ice cookies,  Mary’s Good Cookies (in this cookbook), Samoas, Thin Mints, Chocolate Oat Lace Cookies.  There may be others, but those are some right off the top I’m sure we’ll make.  What’s your favorite cookie that you make at Christmas?

This week I will also be preparing for a Tea Party I am hosting for my homeschool moms.  Items that I am considering making :  Mini Quiche, Cucumber Sandwiches, Chicken Salad on Raisin Bread, Scones with lemon curd and whipped cream, Buttermilk Blueberry Breakfast Cake, Chocolate Coconut Cupcakes.  Various teas. Do you have a favorite tea party recipe or memory?  I have a few great memories of tea parties….two of them were at the Ritz and one was a bridal tea party.  These were all before being GF but such good memories.
