I hobbled my way into the kitchen this weekend for a couple of baking sessions. The cookies above are for my dear friend Mary, who is going to be attending a reunion at the television station where she worked right after college.
We were room mates at the University of Iowa, best buddies, and partners in crime extraordinaire.
In case any of my five children are reading this, Mary and I never hit the bars and we spent every waking second studying.
In other news, I made chocolate chip cookies. It might sound kind of ordinary, but I realized that since I began decorating sugar cookies, I hadn't made them in about a year and a half.
And now on a totally different subject, I want to share a lovely combo that is showing off in my garden.
All of my Asiatic lilies are enormous this year. Like taller than me taking flower steroids enormous. Even the Easter lilies that I replant in the garden each spring, look like they are about to devour the house.
I have no idea why.
I think I will ponder it over a cookie :)
