I’m playing catch up today, technically I’m meant to be locked in my room (per my request to hubby because I don’t know how to rest). Instead I’m brain storming ideas for Christmas, thinking about grandparents day coming up at work, trying to get ahead on blog stuff and most importantly, resting a ridiculously painful back which life simply doesn’t allow time to rest. Instead I’m still technically resting at the kitchen table babbling to husband while watching him price things for our up coming garage sale and still getting work done. Compromise.
With everything at this time of year its hard not to have Christmas on my mind, but I’m really not ready for it. My husband and I have started our endless debate of “I hate the Christmas promotion starting at the start of November” (him) “They are going to do it no matter how many people whinge so there is no point whinging in the first place” (me). Unfortunately there is no denying its getting close, but I’m choosing to ease into it slowly with something that is slightly Christmassy, but is still perfectly acceptable year round. Honestly I’m not even sure why these are on so many perfect cookie Christmas lists. So really its just my way of pretending I’m getting in the Christmas spirit.
I seriously love the white chocolate and cranberry combination (and just decided that white chocolate and cranberry blondies sound phenomenal). There is something about the slight sourness from a cranberries rounded out by the melty sweetness of white chocolate all wrapped up in a warm cookie straight from the oven. They of course taste amazing when they have cooled and the next day as well.
