Xmas is coming ... !!!

the amount of bad quote unquote foods i have made and consumed in the pat 3 days is staggering. and tonight i'll have a final splurge lounging in my brother's McMansion watching ballroom dancing on his widescreen on PBS and stuffing my face with the grasshopper squares i've made.

then tomorrow, back on the train, back to new york, and back to the gym - in fact i'm going DIRECT from Penn Station to my gym. and i have a week's worth of lessons to make up with my teacher, so we're doubling up this week, and i have a bunch of yoga coupons to use for the new year. so i'll be doing a gym session, a lesson or two and a yoga class every day til the new year.

my idea of heaven.
mine were a brownie layer topped with a peppermint white chocolate layer covered in bittersweet ganache. if you search epicurious for "grasshopper squares," you'll see the recipe.

I just sooo love having a cookie named after me...okay I can't help it...it wasn't my planned road to fame, but meh, I'll take it

i just drummed up this thread to report that i took out the bag of Fascination Cookies (notice official capitalization) out of the freezer this morning and just now had one... er, two... and that they are even BETTER after being "aged" in this manner!

fascination, you are truly a delicacy that improves with age! LOL

am going back for hefty seconds. i ate only a couple cookies over xmas, managed easily to eat at least 85% live fruit/vedge/& nuts the whole time i was away amidst all the family hullabaloo... i think i need a little peppermint mocha to round things out nicely
