First Day of the Year

There was no better way for me to spend Sunday afternoon on the first day of the year than baking.

arrangement of baking ingredients

I spent Sunday afternoon at my desk editing.

And then in my kitchen and baking.


With lots of butter…

Slice of butter

…And chocolate

Bag of chocolate chips and box of chocolate squares

…And peanut butter

Jar of planters creamy peanut butter

…and peanut butter cups.

Sliced up peanut butter cups

And oh boy, it was a very productive afternoon.

How did you spend your Sunday and the first day of 2012?

How did you spend New Years Eve?

I went wild and crazy with Jello Shots.  Or something like that.

Happy New Year!

  1. Sounds like a fun New Year’s day, I love playing in the kitchen! We took down Christmas decorations and caught up on housework before heading over to my sister’s for an informal 2nd New Year’s celebration.
