*Good. Santa was super-duper kind to me and got me a Kitchen Aid 13 cup Food Processor. My old one is 16 years old and while the motor was fine all the plastic parts were not.
*Had this yummy cinnamon coffee cake that is easy and an overnight cake (see the recipe below). Went non-traditional for dinner and had steak and a seafood gratin. Followed with a brownie tart with hot chocolate and marshmallow ice cream (recipe later this week).
*As usual Crazy Cocker Spaniel made out the best. Which is why we are mean and play Deck the Dog with her.
In good news though you can all see that I picked up a date for New Year’s Eve.
What did you end up getting? Was Santa kind to you as well?
