Christmas photos

Well, the only cookies we managed to make were the cookie press. That is, if you don't count the cinnamon trees that didn't mention the flour in the recipe and got et before Christmas, and the pistachio and cranberry ice box cookies that no one really likes.

We made some colored sugar to decorate them this year, and the sugar was like little jewels.

For dinner on Christmas eve, I made a buncha hors d'oeuvres. We ate some of this. There were crackers with lunch meat and cheese, more cheese cubes and a variety of different crackers, salsa and homemade guacamole with chips and hummus and baba ganoush with pita triangles. And grape juice. And grapes, too, for that matter.   And some pistachios.
This is a new table cloth.  It used to be a sarong, but I ripped the seam open.

This is the tray with the corned beef.  I'm not very good at decorating crackers for snacks like this, it took a while before I got creative with the tiny cookie cutters.

Here is the German apple pancake before it deflated.  Usually I make this in a saute pan in the oven, but none of my pans fit in my little oven, so I used this cake pan.  I was afraid it was going to overflow, but it didn't.

Here are some of the present pictures.

This purse was made by some micro enterprise somewhere in SE Asia.
Here are the stainless chopsticks Terry got.

Blogger is being poopy, so I'll try to post more pix later.

Ooohh all that food looks really great! And love the vacuum. It is really small isn't it?
I almost forgot that ukelele. I didn't even mention it to Dave. Thanks for sending all the pics, but really, I need another good one of the brain. Too funny.
