Yet moar Cookies! (will it never end??)

Under the tag lies horrific scenes of snow, kitchen mayhem and baked SGA characters.



I have somehow been transported to Hoth.



I like the fact that we don't get snow in Vancouver.



Usually.



Sigh.

So. Stuck at home, cuz I ain't driving in it if I don't have to (I mean seriously, *I* know how to drive in it cuz this is what I grew up with, but the native Vancouverites *DON'T*).

I had bored kids who would normally go with their dad on a Sunday, and he wasn't driving in this either (thank God! I don't trust him behind the wheel in adverse conditions)

I wasn't going to take them swimming because, a) see above and not driving, and b) if they walked, they would turn into Popsicles on the way home

So. I got out the craft stuff and got them to make some Christmas cards for their dad and grandma and various others.



Monkey boy is a little tired of his snap-happy mom.



I can't help myself. I really love having a digital camera!

So. While the kids were crafting, I was deciding what cookies to make next.



I had misplaced my favorite recipe and it was driving me NUTS, but I found it - YAY! I really need to just type up my collection of favorite recipes and put together a booklet of my Christmas favorites.



Girly girl has made a double batch of the Eggnog Cookie dough a couple days ago, so I needed to finish that up first off. The egg yolk paint makes the colours very vibrant when they're baked.

Under the eggnog cookies are a Candy Drops that everyone loves so much - milk chocolate and Skor bits. I have yet to meet someone who *doesn't* like these ones.



Ronon and John ver 2.0 put in an appearance.



Rodney was relived. But he hid it well and lit in to them both about taking so long and leaving him all alone in the strange kitchen with all the weird cookies who didn't appreciate his true genius.

John and Ronon took it in stride.



Then, an Ancient appeared!



Rodney panics: "OMG, JOHN! DO SOMETHING!"

John waves: "Err. Hi."



Everyone gets along on the cooling rack. Cuz I said so.




Thus endeth the cookie crack. For today.

They look so good! I especailly like the ascended ancient - very glowy and squid-like. Oh, and I've been meaning to ask, how did your daughter get on with her edible cell? cep xxx

I was very proud of the Ancient! It was hard to get it off the pan after baking - I should have put it on parchment paper first.

I asked her what he final mark was - she said it was out of 45 marks and she got 3 marks off. So about 90% over all.

- from my post of the 14th: (meme)

"Three TV Shows that I watch:

1. Nothing
2. Nada
3. Diddle E."

(we don't have cable; I've had almost nothing in the way of regular TV since march of '04)

I'd actually thought about getting out the action figures and doing a little diorama with the Ancient!cookie, but I figured it was just way too delicate and would have smashed into lots of pieces.

Cookies!

Is the paint just egg yolk + colour?
shaddyr
Dec. 22nd, 2008 11:14 pm (UTC)
Yup.

2 egg yolks
1/2 tsp. water

Beat together well.

Divide it up between 4 or 5 ice cube 'cups' and then add food colour a drop or two at a time till you reach the desired shade. Bakes up fairly well, as you can see from the pictures.

Yeah, I have to admit the snow is *pretty*.

It is *NOT* however, conducive to safe driving because there are all these *crazy* people on the streets who have no idea what thy are doing.

We'll get a green Christmas. Very often in the last years but now on places it's very uncommon it snows. Weather is crazy.
And way better not to drive when others aren't use to it.

Mmmm yummy cookies.
