On Saturday, I attended a cookie gathering/swap organized by Sacramento's own, Garrett McCord of Vanilla Garlic.
This is a bootleg post about it. I didn't bring any cookies. If I had, I probably would have made something with pistachio, almond, or hazelnuts. There will be cookies made and posted on the blog this season, it just might be a little later on in the month (as I will be making cookies for the winner of a contest I am having for the columnists of Senior Magazine, and might be cajoled in to making cookies for a few select others *wink*). For the most part I am trying to keep trigger foods out of my kitchen. It was so nice to just show up and socialize with everyone. Did not bring anything, so I did not take or try anything, either. But I did take pics with the sylvacam for your viewing pleasure! Feast your eyes, my pretties...

Oh yes, and happily sipped a can of Diet 7-Up.
Mrs. Appetizer's kind words to me probably made my day. :)
I had a lovely time and will host something soon at my fort or someone else's. Merry Christmas, all you Cookie Monsters out there.
