Oh, how I love love love this little girl, sticky face and all! She is our world. Can you believe she is 10 months old?!

For the Super Bowl my husband took our 60 inch and put it on the back of his truck. We all sat out in the drive way, watched the Super Bowl and grilled out. It was a blast!

Christmas Coffee

1 box (10 packages)  Swiss Miss Cocoa
2 c.  Original Flavor Coffee Mate
1/2 c. Instant Folgers Coffee Crystals, decaf
1 tsp.  cinnamon
1 1/4 c.  sugar
Mix together in a baggie.  (We have found that mixing it all together in a ziploc works best... it doesn't quite get mixed well enough in a bowl.)  Put 3-4 tbs. of mix per cup of hot water.  (I make it stronger, 5-6 tbs.)

Lemon Macaroons

1 1/2 cups flaked coconut

2/3 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 t. lemon extract

2 egg whites, lightly beaten

Vegetable cooking spray

Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; stir well. For each cookie, spoon 2 level teaspoonfuls dough onto cookie sheets coated with cooking spray. Flatten each cookie into a 1/4 inch round. Bake 325 degrees for 24-26 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets, and let cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container. Makes 2 dozen.

Tomorrow I will be posting

Parmesan Pesto Pinwheels
