Birthdays Abound


Dadaw Knight boxing with his best girls...

Today’s one of the most important days in my life.  It’s the Knight’s birthday!  Facebook also reminded me that two other delightful friends were also born on this day.  Only one blogs, so wish Frank well in your heart (he does field trials with his dogs, so I know y’all’d love him) and pop over and visit Barbara

There are several other special birthdays coming up but I hesitate to mention anyone for fear of overlooking someone.   Still… I’d be remiss if I didn’t note that the kind and wonderful Alison and the sweet and funny Barbara (yes, a different one) will be celebrating in the next few days too!  (That 2nd Barbara is having one of those milestone birthdays, so if you only click over for one…)

I didn’t get any photos at the cookie swap, nor were there any recipes to share.   I will borrow from Recipe Girl via Pinterest and show you what I took and the link to the recipe is within as well.  Sissy does want it known that she unwillingly donated the peppermints to the cause.  No candy canes were harmed in the making of said cookies at our house. 

If you’re game, go visit Amy and share your must-make-eat-have holiday recipe!   I think I’ve shared mine before, but it’s that time of year when I need to create my baking list and make a plan…

What’s ahead for your weekend?  If you’re local, look for the League “float” (golf cart) tomorrow in the Downtown parade.

    Happy Birthday tot your Knight. He is a lovely man and I’m thrilled to say I ‘talked’ to him!

    Got my Pin invite – but have yet to do anything with it. Saw a mention of eggnog cookies recently and now I have to find a recipe – your cookies look delicious – I’m so glad The Queen shared her peppermints. Very nice indeed. g

    Happy Birthday to Gretchen and Sissy’s Dad. We’d like to celebrate with him or even without him.

    Mom is making Christmas cookies this weekend because she’s been really hungry for them lately. She bought lots of good smelling stuff yesterday and we hope there are some dog cookies included.

    Ditto what AlisonH said…..

    I am with Sissy on the candy cane thing, they should be peppermint. What is with all these other flavors lately? Though I think Sissy would love the Bacon flavored ones I saw online.

    And what an adorable photo of the girls on the beach….perfect.
    Many thanks for the birthday wishes, Chan. 🙂 At least it wasn’t a BIG one.
    The peppermint cookies look wonderful…leave it to Lori to have a great recipe. I love her blog. Might add that to my cookie tray for Friday. Thanks for the heads up on the recipe.
    How was the parade?
