It is goodbye to the year 2008 and a hello to the year 2009. I have not been in the kitchen to make anything today. I was busy taking down the Christmas decorations. It is a tradition for Randy and I that we wait until after the first of the year to take down the decorations. Now the house seems pretty bare with all the decorations gone. I am off this weekend and I plan to do some cooking and baking. And, yes I have not forgotten about the Christmas cookie post, so I will be putting that up this weekend as well. Happy New Year to all!
