Wickedly sad girl

I was really excited to go and see Wicked which is passing through town. After trying to get tickets online for an hour I gave up (yes I really wasted an hour of my life hitting the refresh button!). Apparently they were not prepared for the masses and it sold out pretty fast. Of course plenty of tickets are floating around the internet if you want to pay $500 a pop! I might as well go to NYC and see it on Broadway. Did anyone get tickets?

A new twist on an old favorite

I went to my first ever cookie exchange, YUM! I must admit cookies are one of my favorite things about Christmas. Someone had made homemade Oreo's with peppermint frosting! They have mint Oreo's right, how had I never thought of this myself? Needless to say these are in my cookie jar right now and the rate we are going they are not going to last long!

Peppermint Oreo's
1 box Chocolate cake mix
2 Eggs
3/4 cup Butter

Mix roll into balls and bake at 350 for about six to eight minutes.
Cool cookies sandwich with peppermint frosting.

Peppermint Frosting
vanilla frosting with a teaspoon of peppermint extract.
For a festive touch I marbled in a little red food coloring.

Today after lunch I gave my son one and he looks at it, looks up to me and says, "wait a minute this is two cookies," he was beeming when he realized they were both his.
