But, hey! Look! Cookies! Totally better than roasted meat.
S got an itch to make some treats for Valentine's day after watching the Martha Stewart show with me. (Shut up. Yes, I watch Martha Stewart. While I fold laundry, in fact. I am a housewife, peeps, and am embracing the clichés.)
ANYWAY. We made some sugar cookies (dairy-free, because one of Sarah's besties can't have dairy products) and then whipped up some royal icing, which was totally fun to play with.
Aren't they cute? (They dried hard, though. I should have used the recipe for soft cookies.)
Fancy, eh? I tried that trick where you drag a toothpick through lines of frosting, and it totally worked!
But my favorites were these that Sarah did. Aren't the colors fantastically 80s? They're like little edible Cyndi Lauper videos.
If only cooking dinner could be just a little more like frosting cookies. How does one get crafty with pot roast? Artistically carved vegetables? Little frilled caps on the bones? (No, wait, that's a standing rib roast.) I'll get back to you on that. Still, cookies! Yay!
