Merry Christmas!

Guess what? I won something again! Last Friday was our company’s Holiday Party. I was hoping for the grand prize – a TV but considering that there were less prizes this year than in previous parties, I’m happy with what I got. The gift card is for $50 at The Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club. I don’t play golf and neither does Marcel so it is probably going to be used at the restaurant. At last year’s party, I won an iPod. Thank you “company”!

For our secret Santa gift exchange, I received a wonderful cookbook! Unfortunately, they never tell you who the gift is from. Oh well, this person must know I like cooking. The Martha Stewart’s Dinner at Home cookbook is interesting as it is organized by complete meals rather than categories. I can’t wait to get cookin’ 🙂

I made jam thumbprint cookies for my co-workers. This recipe by Ina Garten was a hit! I used some blueberry jam I made last summer and mixed nuts instead of coconut.
