TWD: Not


I'm stumped... how is everyone else happily baking away for Tuesdays with Dorie when Christmas is looming! Last night I just about had a nervous breakdown thinking of all the things we I have to get done before this weekend. And I wonder if I will survive....so for now I'm letting myself off the baking hook.

Cuz you can can can...


I was flipping through the channels last night whilst the hubby was putting together a sofa table. I had already put together two chairs, thank you very much! OK OK I confess they were from Ikea so it wasn't rocket science, it was Swedish rocket science!

Anyhoo... back to the tv flip-fest... I landed on PBS and the A Capella singing group Straight No Chaser was on. I've seen one or two clips of these guys before and they are fantastic. If you haven't had the pleasure please take a listen.

TWD: Sables


Holy moly  its Wednesday! How the heck it is already the second week in December, I need to go back a few weeks so I have time to do what I need to do before Christmas!

The recipe this week for  Tuesdays with Dorie was Sables chosen by Bungalow Barbara. Sables I obviously haven't made yet.... and not because I was drinking rum, although that would probably make me feel better about it, but because I'm just flat out busy. I hope I can make them this week tho because for all the posts I've seen they are just beautiful and easy to make.... when you have the time.

You can check out the recipe and some variations on the theme at Barbara's blog here.
