I'm not sure I want to feel even more disappointed in my government, but...if you really recommend it...Happy New Year!

What Kristin said about government, though I probably won't read it - sticking to light reading right now. Best wishes for a wonderful new year to you and Mark.

These books sound like good reads. The cookies look yummy. It is finally cold here. The wind is blowing and blowing and blowing. Winter is finally here. No snow to take away the sting of all the wind and cold temps. Enjoy your tradition of inviting in the new year. Cheers.

Like Barbara and Kristin, I'm hovering too close to total depression over national - and international - politics to dive into the subject during the evenings when I sit down to relax with a book. After finishing "Notes from an Exhibition" by Patrick Gale on the impact of mental illness on a family, I've buried myself in one of Elinor Lipman's books, "The Family Man," which offers much lighter fare.

Best wishes for a wonderful New Year's gathering! Those cookies look scrumptious.


"Say Nothing" was a good read. these cookies look great. Would you post the recipe?


It's always good to read interesting books no matter what. Sounds like your NY Eve has been pleasant. The cookies look tasty. Happy New Year!

Sounds like a good wrap on the year! Here's to a wonderful 2020...

I see that the end of 2019 was really nice for you! I love cooking so if I have free time I spend it in my kitchen. The most rewarding it is to use what I have grown in my garden to cook. On New Years eve I did a party in my house so I decided to prepare some dishes on my own. For the first time I did a cake with cantaloupe which seeds I got from . I have grown it quite long and I had to provide it very tough conditions but my friends were really excited by the fact that I have grown this fruit on my own.
