Week 54 Photo Challenge: Dessert

Happy last day of 2022!  Hard to believe another year is gone.  They seem to go by faster the older I get.  We have no special plans for tonight. Grad Girl has a sleep over planned with her high school friends, so we'll be cat sitting. Considering how moody Queenie gets when her person is not in the house, it may be a long night. 

This week's photo challenge card was chosen by Grad Girl.

With the holiday, there were lots of baked goods to choose from for this challenge, so Grad Girl chose well. I went simple for my photo. 

Kate: Cookies for Santa


We don't do the cookies for Santa anymore as we don't have any littles in the family at the moment, but this is what this year's offering would have looked like.  These are My Guy's snickerdoodle cookies, they are one of my favorites.  After the huge Christmas dinner we had, these were all the sweet I had room for. 

My Guy did a lot of a baking for the holiday, including a sweet bread. 

My Guy: Amaretto Almond

He made two loafs of his amaretto almond sweet bread. All of one loaf and most of the second were gone before the end of the holiday.  

Grad Girl chose her photo from one of our traditions that happened after Christmas. 

Grad Girl: Chocolate and Sprinkles

Oklahoma City is one of the few places we can get Krispy Creme donuts, so we always find one morning while we are there to have a breakfast of coffee and donuts.  

I want to add an honorable mention this week. All three of us have a version of this photo on our phones and it's just too fun not to share. 

Honorable Mention: Murdered Snowman Cake

This was dessert for lunch at one of our favorite cafes in OKC. It was My Guy who first made the observation about "blood drops" on the plate. We had quite a laugh over our murdered snowman cake. 

Grad Girl drew the new photo card for this week. She made up for drawing such a timely one last week. 

This one could be a real challenge considering it's the first week of January.  It will be interesting to see what we all come up with for next week's post.  

Have a very Happy New Year!

Those snickerdoodles look yummy! So do the Krispy Cremes and the snowman cake. We don't have Krispy Creme around here, but I have enjoyed them a time or two when we were someplace special. Happy New Year, Kate and family!
