christmas baskets

In the weeks before christmas i made dozens of cookies–some for our friends at the drop in centre, but mostly as a part of a christmas basket my sister and I put together for our extended family.
maple & gingerbread cookies (with fresh & candied ginger)
sugar cookie swirls
chewy chocolate & walnut bars (blondies)
brownsugar button cookies
nanny’s shortbread
caramel corn
and a homemade paper ornament

This year is to be a low-key, low stress, christmas lite, with as little consumerism as possible. We flew out at 6am christmas morning, so Santa needed to visit christmas eve with as little hoopla as possible

Christmas feast: chinese take-out for a family of 12, worked brilliantly! I will never cook a turkey for christmas again!
