V-Day Cookies...

There is nothing like a great snowstorm... except when it's on a weekday and has pretty much guaranteed you a 5 day weekend!  Thank you, state of Maryland, and your complete inability to handle 18+ inches of snow in less than a week's time.  Nick is out building his dream igloo fort in the front yard and Georgia is taking a nap, so it's time for Mommy to catch up on some photo uploads...

This past weekend, Georgia and I spent some quality time together (aka - killed an hour during the winter that will never end) frosting and decorating Valentine's Day cookies.  We used some G-safe sugar cookies that I discovered in the pantry.  While I was digging around in there, I also found some sprinkles from circa 2011 (Thank you, Target $1 bins!).  I was blown away when I was walking around our new Harris Teeter store this past week and decided to read a few frosting labels in the baking aisles.  Who knew Pillsbury funfetti frosting was completely dairy and peanut free?!?!  Even the chocolate frosting!  So, a few of those cans may have been thrown in the grocery cart!  This shall become a new staple in our house.  I'm already thinking of all the recipes I can now make Georgia-safe using this as a replacement for cream cheese and other frostings!








While Georgia certainly had fun "decorating" the cookies (aka - dumping massive amounts of sprinkles on them), everyone knows eating them is the big reward in the end!







Finger licking good...
















Of course, when cookie decorating, a few sprinkles tend to get on the floor.  Luckily, Georgia has a new obsession with cleaning!  Excellent...  I hope this hobby NEVER goes away!












Georgia has a few new favorite things that arrived in a package from Mimi this week...
