Codeine and Cookies

December 22, 2012


I went to the doctor Saturday morning because I’ve been losing my voice, and I’ve talked to three people this past week who said it was the first sign that they had strep. Yikes! I wanted to make sure that’s not what I have, and I don’t. It’s just some sinus drainage, and I got a prescription cough syrup. Sweet, medicated dreams – here I come! I’m sharing it with Lloyd, so he will stop his incessant nighttime coughing get well, too.

In other news, we went over to Beth’s for dinner and to decorate Christmas cookies. She is amazing – dinner, cookies and decoration supplies and she didn’t even break a sweat!

I saw that she had some Dum Dum suckers, so we cracked up a few and tried some windowpane cookies:

Thank you, straw and wedding ring.

Load ’em up, kids.

Sprinkle, sprinkle.

Here is what they looked like before baking. I thought that the candy should be even with the top of the dough, but I didn’t account for the empty space remaining in each hole. The trees didn’t turn out as well as I thought, but they were still pretty.

A little too hole-y.

The stars, though, were quite successful. Too bad the camera work was not.
I did not eat one.

Feelin’ a little more Christmas-y! (cough cough)

    I don’t know why it surprised me so much, but you could really taste the different flavors of the crushed lollipops in the cookies.

    That is an AWESOME idea for those cookies! I may have to try it….next year.

    And I’m glad that the cookies weren’t made with codeine….or wait, is that also a great idea?
