holiday treats

Can you believe it’s only a week until Christmas?  I love all of the festivities, special cookies, decorations and festive coffee cups.

I bought these cookies because they were cute.  I had big plans for using them for photography and then enjoying them.

Well, they were fun to photograph.

 

But not fun to eat.  Stale tasting and bleh.  The gingerbread man didn’t taste like gingerbread at all!

And the Santa, tasted like cardboard.  A few weeks later, Dan and I were in the store and I was hunting for a fun treat to photograph and he gently told me no.  He said that he has no desire to eat these things anymore.

He said he would eat my homemade cookies, but has no desire to eat these anymore.  And thus ended my store bought treats trend.  I guess I need to do some more baking!
