So Thanksgiving was good - spent it at home, had a quiet dinner with the partner, and put together a pretty puzzle of New York City (which I am angry at not being able to visit this year. GRR). Then, come Friday night, as usual on a holiday break, I came down with a stomach flu or some such non-sense that reminds me of my intimate acquaintance with the toilet bowl. Yuck.

Anyways, it's almost December and it's time to get cracking on some Slovak Christmasing. That means... sweets. All kinds of sweets. On the menu so far: orechovniky (nut rolls), medovniky (honey cakes), linecké koláčiky (linzer cookies), and white chocolate chip cookies for my mommy. She loves white chocolate.

Tonight, I'm starting the dough for some orechovniky (the dough needs to rest overnight in the fridge), and I'm making the white chocolate chip cookies. Those are easy. In the morning, I'll roll out the dough for the orechovniky, make the filling, and bake off some of them, probably two at a time.

The word to sum up my December...: LAAAAAAAAAARD.
