Discovering new cookies

We always had Christmas cookies at our house when I was growing up.  We had Toffee Bars,  spritz cookies, and these green meringue things.  There were probably others, but those are the ones that stick with me.  The meringues usually had chocolate chips, kind of a minty chocolate combo.

The spritz cookies always had icing and occasionally had sprinkles or something.Looking at the calendar for this coming month, there are a lot of new cookies that we’ll get to try.

On a totally different holiday topic…every night this week when I have arrived home (and Monday night it was about 10pm) one of my neighbors has been out hanging Christmas lights on their house.   On a ladder.  In the dark.  I appreciate a tasteful holiday lighting display as much as the next person, but, gosh, what’s the hurry?   Speaking of tasteful holiday lighting displays, those of you who drive along Cedar Ave in Bloomington just south of Mall of America, have you seen the giant oak tree that is all lit up in a cool blue?  Wow!  Just try to keep one eye on the road as you check it out.
